Gorgeous Interior Gilding At The Old Bakery, Corfu

This fantastic piece of interior gilding comes to us care of Julian and Claire Butler, two talented ex-pats who are currently living in idyllic Corfu, and it shows how a splash of gold can turn an otherwise drab architectural feature into a centrepiece!

This was originally just a concrete pillar in the kitchen of a charming, converted bakery that they have turned into a holiday home  and measures nearly 3m high and over 5m across! As you can imagine it was quite the labour of love gilding it but it was definitely worth it – the pictures hardly do it justice but imagine how it must sparkle in the lush Corfu sun! Or, even better than that, you can see it for yourself by hiring The Old Bakery for a summer break in Corfu, you can find more details here – www.selfcateringcorfu.com

This already bright, airy space feels even brighter when the sunlight catches the gold

This concrete pillar has been totally covered in imitation Gold and now sparkles like it was cast from gold!

Gold reflects the light around it, imparting it with a soft golden warmth that compliments any lighting
