Gilded Pleasures.

On a trip to Spain years and years ago, I was influenced by the unique accessories I passed by, whether storefront, or door front. Handles, hinges, even gutters were artful in form and eye-catching in everything else. So today I came across accessories at Karkula – designed by the famous Antoni Gaudi. The Gaudi influence is all over Barcelona, as might be these gilded beauties.
