This winter, entertain guests around a beautifully decorated fireplace. Go vintage by placing terracotta finials, mercury glass bottles, and weathered candle stands into artful arrangements. Or set a sleek, streamlined tone with exotic decorative boxes (R & Y Augousti's, crafted in luxe materials like parchment and ostrich, are some of the most elegant on the market). And Gold Leaf's Bean Pod balls, in rustic shades of green and red, make a lovely holiday accent when piled into a shallow bowl.

Designer Thom Filicia has splashed onto the art scene with designs that are as ebullient and multi-faceted as he is. Some are more abstract, like “Water Reflection” (which depicts a sunlit water surface, but from afar, could seem just like a swirly blue pattern) and “Ice” (showing the reflection of a corner of an ice block). Others are more literal and pastoral, like the exquisite “Leaves Triptych,” with an image of three leaves overlapping on three panels. These and many of his other works depict natural elements, with a sense of fluidity and movement. And, due to Filicia’s design background, he chooses colors, patterns and images that meld effortlessly into both modern and transitional interior design schemes.
