Cote de Texas GIVEAWAY!!!!

image
One of the Southern Accent’s prettiest bedrooms.  I love the touches of blue – and I especially the collection of framed intaglios.  Designer Jackye Lanham framed the collection of intaglios on some type of blue matting, which in turn makes the intaglios the focal point of the room.
image
I love intaglios – of all kinds, whether they are in jewelry or hanging on the walls.   Intaglio is like a cameo, except the carving is inside the stone, not outside like the cameo.    This brooch’s setting is from year 1000, while the stone intaglio comes from the year 337!   The setting is gold with pearls while the intaglio is a blue sapphire. 


image
Here, jeweler Elizabeth Locke shows a similar intaglio brooch – made for today.   Locke tends to use a lot of intaglios in her designs. 

image
One way to keep intaglios is shown above.   Today, most intaglios are framed and then hung.  This collection of antique intaglios are mounted in a book box which is for sale on 1st Dibs.    The intaglios date from the early 1800s.     Most antique intaglios are from the 18th century and are mementos collected during a grand tour of Europe.   The carvings depict classical Greek and Roman sculpture, as well as subjects of famous paintings.   Today, intaglios are still being made and many of the framed sets are actually new reproductions – as the antiques are exceedingly rare and expensive. 


 image In this painting, you can a few intaglios that are shown hanging on the walls – not framed.   I love this painting – the carved hall chair, the piece of masonware hanging on the wall, the oval mirror, the ironstone, the portiere, the easel and the book, the busts above the door – many things that are still used in decor today!


image
Here is a living room showing a grouping of framed intaglios surrounding a Louis Philippe mirror.   Many times, numerous framed intaglios are hung together over sofas, as shown here. 

image The same room, looking straight onto the symmetrical intaglio arrangement. 

image
Here Phoebe Howard used a collection of intaglios framed on blue matting to match the quilt. 

image 
I took this picture at Shabby Slips in Austin – two small intaglios on taupe are just the right touch above these twin beds.   Those bed skirts are delicious!!


image
Betty Burgess used a large collection of intaglios to cover the walls of this dining room.  Simply framed on white matting – with one intaglio per frame – the effect is stunning.  Intaglios by Jon Freeman for Tiberian Design Framed Intaglios  http://www.tiberiandesign.com/


image At Hanham Court in England, a large collection of intaglios are framed.   Judging by the antiques in this room, I would assume these intaglios are all antique, not reproductions.  At a recent Christie’s auction of Hanham Court items, these intaglios sold for over $3,000.

 imageThese intaglios are beautifully framed.  They actually look like antique brooches.   So pretty. 


imageMy friend Julie has a set of single framed intaglios hanging over her buffet in the living room.


image I think intaglios look especially pretty next to grays and Swedish furniture.  Here, these framed intaglios are on deep blue mats which bring out the blues in the gray painted corner cabinet.  So pretty!  Intaglios by Jon Freeman for Tiberian Design Framed Intaglios



High contrast – in a brown and white bedroom, these intaglios are framed on dark brown matting.    Here, many different shapes are used to create a symmetrical design. 


image Elegantly framed intaglios flank a trumeau mirror. 


image
In this Houston powder room, two sets of intaglios hang on a side wall.

 image One large framed intaglio collection hangs in another bathroom.  Notice the dark mats that blend into the paint color. 



  image  In a dusty pink bedroom, gray intaglios hang, three over three. 


image
These intaglios are hanging together over a buffet creating a very symmetrical vignette. 

image
Yes, intaglios can be framed and hung in a contemporary style. 



image
I love the way these are hung in front of a bookshelves.  So pretty!



image
All different sizes of intaglios are together in this vignette.

Last year, blogger Things That Inspire written by Holly Street – started, with a friend,  a new business, Quatrefoil Designs HERE.   They sell all different kinds of things – but their main focus is on framed intaglios.   Today, Holly has graciously offered a framed intaglio as a giveaway!!  In this picture of Holly’s dining room, she has hung a collection of 8 of her framed intaglios.   Holly and her husband are in the middle of building a new house.  I can’t wait to see where she will put her collection in her new house.



image
Blogger Gina from Willow Decor bought a set of framed intaglios from Quatrefoil for her music room.    I love her antique Swedish furniture mixed with the intaglios.  Soooo perfect and beautiful!   HERE

rimage Here’s a close-up picture of Gina’s collection of intaglios from Quatrefoil.


image
Jeanette, from the blog A Passion For Home HERE, is starting a collection of intaglios from Quatrefoil Design.  She bought two “Joni I’s” – yes, inspired by moi.  Jeanette is planning to add to her collection over time- which is a great idea if you are unable to buy an entire collection at once!!


image
Quatrefoil sells these square framed intaglios, called the La Petite.  Quatrefoil’s frames come in gold, silver, and gliver – a combination of the two. 

image
This arrangement can be purchased in these sizes – called “The Holly Grouping.”

image
This client of mine had a very narrow main hallway – too narrow for furniture.  Instead, we hung a set of custom sized Quatrefoil intaglios.  Today, this arrangement is called the “Cote de Texas Grouping.”

image
Here’s a closeup of my client’s frames.  This is the “Cote de Texas Grouping.”

THE GIVEAWAY:
Quatrefoil Design has generously denoted a choice of the Joni I or II intaglio, or the Charlotte intaglio, framed.

    Holly and Joni, I love the intaglios. I have drooled over your posts of these several times. The over-sized matting in the Joni I and II collections really focuses the eye on the details of the "reverse cameo". If I could design a grouping I would do nine or twelve all in the same size, all with over-sized mats. Thank you for introducing me to intaglios.

    The pictures SHOWING them all in such beautiful settings was sheer delight, and I seemed to adore each & every one (EXCEPT for Hanham Ct in England... it was um, yeah, well, just a liiiiitle bit "toooo busy" for MY taste! You couldn't even "SEE" the Intaglios with all the other "stuff"!).

    Oh yes, pleeease enter my name!

    Warmest,

  118. Okay, I've been waiting for this since you mentioned it!

    I have always loved intaglio's and have been on quatrefoil's site several times since she began her business-- I was THRILLED to find a reproduction intaglio line because the antique groupings can be really cost prohibitive.....personally, I love your grouping and The Joni just stand alone. I love a wide mat with a small object. Gold would be my choice :)

    See this face? It's the face of a winner. Pick me, pick me, pick me!!!

    xoxo,

    Andrea

  130. A lovely giveaway! The Framed Architectural Rendering: Rosette really speaks to me. It reminded me of Rome and then I read about it - the original is in the Capitoline museum in Rome!

  131. I want one of each!! If I had to pick JUST ONE, I love the Elisabeth. Thanks Joni!

  132. I'm throwing my hat in the ring! My favorite intaglios are actually the ones for the giveaway: The Jonis I and II. Perfect! I also loved the antique frame (how gorgeous is that?). And I'm looking forward to checking out the site for more lighting and pillows. Pillows and lighting please. :)

  134. I love the Rock Lobster, it would be great in a beach home! But I must say that I am in love with the silver framed intaglios with the medium gray inner mat and the light gray outer mat. It would be lovely in my bedroom! Thanks Joni for all of your posts, I have become addicted to your site. This is my first time commenting but have been following Cote De Texas for over a year. It's the best.

  137. Wow! I've always loved those. Just need to find a spot for them (and love seeing them in a more contemporary setting, which is more my style). I also think their framed renderings are fabulous! kikoindallas at hotmail dot com

  139. Oh how beautiful and I love the history behind them! I like the "Elisabeth" grouping.

  140. Your blog is a Julia Cameron artist date for me. I look forward to your posts. At Quatrefoil Design, I love the colors, especially the touches of hot pink, and texture of the crab series by Nancy B. Westfall. The Calligraphy Flourish on the Davison pillow is elegant and striking.

  152. All of the intaglios (and all of the other merchandise, too!)are beautiful. We are building our dream house and the great room has 18 foot ceilings - I would love to put one of the 9 or 12 intaglio sets on the wall opposite the fireplace.

  158. Hi Joni,
    A wonderful giveaway. I love the quality of the shadow boxes and frames, and their petite boxes are quite reasonable. Thanks for the Quatrefoil intro. I think I need to go snatch a silver frame with the grey mat.

    (Note to Quatrefoil: I tried to buy a set of 2, but their shopping cart doesn't work, it doesn't allow me to change quantity.)

    For those who want to do their own thing color-wise, Ebay is a great source, search on "Grand Tour Plaster Cameos". $30/for 20 or so. Sometimes they have antiques :).

  160. I love design and feel like every blog is a seminar class! I like to learn something new everyday. Thanks to Cote de Texas today I learned about intaglios. Including history and showing multiple demonstrations of use in design has me jazzed!

    My youngest child just left for college. It's time for a "refresh and a re-do."

    I would select the Cote de Texas COLLECTION and use it as the inspiration and centerpiece for the redesign of my baby's (now college student) room! She loves good design and would be wowed! So would her mom!

  161. I like the large groupings, nine or twelve in gliver and gray mats...lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Love these!! Have just the spot in my "Barn" for one.

    I have to say I love the "Joni's" and the "La Petite's" either one is just right. Simple yet really make a statement.

    Although, if I had and extra ten grand sitting around the first thing I'd buy is that gorgeous antique frame! GORGEOUS!!

    Great give away!

    Thank you!

  163. I purchased the petite intaglio (with the gray mat) from Holly a few months back and I LOVE it. Would love to own the Charlotte as a companion piece.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I adore the la petite framed intaglio - shadowbox style.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Thanks for the opportunity! I love the Cote de Texas grouping. It would look great over my sideboard in my dining room.

  166. All of their items are really nice, but I particularly like the 18th and 19th century antique French documents. I've always been a sucker for any antique books or documents.

    ReplyDelete
  167. No contest! Original art - 'Rock Lobster'. I want to do a nursery themed on Ringo Star's song for The Beatles "Octopus's Garden" (MY FAVORITE) ... how perfect would this be!!

  168. Joni,

    I love the intaglios...Joni II is my favorite of the two. I love the Things that Inspire site, read each post and always come away feeling informed...and slightly envious of some of the amazing homes!

    Same for your site...how do you do it?

  169. I really like the architectural renderings. Palmette is nice, but a whole set would be wonderful.

  176. I love the Bracket (framed architectural renderings) it could go in any room, traditional or contemporary decor.

    ReplyDelete
  177. This is such a wonderful treat. I've loved intaglio but wasn't sure how to use them. I love the "Holly" grouping because you can always find a place for such a compact group with so much visual impact. Most of all I love the architectural renderings: egg and dart my favorite.

    Thanks for this little lesson in the collecting of intaglio.

    ReplyDelete
  178. My favorite thing about quatrofoil design's framed pieces is the 'gilver' frame, what a fabulous combo of gold + silver = STLYE in any space. Love both the Cote de Texas and Things that Inspire blogs! Way to go and keep up the inspirational and amusing posts!

    ReplyDelete
  179. What a great give away. Thank you. I've been contemplating about buying the "Joni II" for a while now. Maybe I won't have to pay for it now.

  180. When I see the word "Paris", I always stop...and then I came back. Faith beckoned but Paris calls. Thank you & Holly for the generosity!!

  183. I love the La Petite framed intaglios. I have a narrow wall where I could see layering these vertically to make a statement.

  196. Too many intaglios to love - my faves are the Elisabeth and the La Petite with the thick silver frame (a great new addition). The silvers beat the golds in my house. Great collection.
