The art of the obelisk in English design

Spring is finally here, even if the weather in the Northeast of the US does not quite match. I have been struck by the obelisks in English homes in recent decorating publications. As obelisk lovers, these are fun to see, and get the creative ideas flowing!

In the Hampshire, England home of Jemma Kidd and Arthur Wellesley, a pair of smart obelisks grace the desk in the library. Elle Decor April 2014

In the London home of designer Bridie Hall the mantel is anchored by a pair of simple white marble obelisks. House & Garden, UK

In the Suffolk, England home of Trevor Pickett, a pair of etched mirrored obelisks sit on the mantel serving to not just add decoration, but to further frame the painting. I love the whole cozy sitting room! House & Garden, UK

So easy to get English style - add some obelisks!
