Anya from Elegantly Untamed has such a cute style. I wrote about her biz here in November of 2012, where she sells the most bling-y iPhone cases. They're gorgeous & so unique...talk about intricate detail.
She was born in Russia but operates out of upstate New York & today she decided to share her home with MadeByGirl readers. My favorite part is the mantle area over the fireplace, love all the bunched up candles and gold accents!
Below is Anya explaining in her own words a little about the decor in her place:
I have a lot of black and gold in my place. A lot of the pieces I found at antique stores, like the brass etagere and the S chairs that I painted gold. The credenza I transformed as well, by painting it white and gold, then adding the vintage lions head pulls I found on eBay. All the paintings I did myself also to go with the decor. Other places include IKEA, Home Goods, Target, Flash Sale Sites, eBay, craigslist, and local retro shops.
