Embellishing with Appliques and Onlays

If you love beautiful things like I do, then you want to see it all around you.  The furniture that I love the most, and makes me say "Ooh la la!" is loaded with rich embellishments and elements of a French Country influence. Work that shines with opulence, and home decor that [...]
