Gilded paradise

Posted by Barbara Peterson on February 19, 2011 at 09:08

I have tried to find an explanation of the phrase "gilded paradise," but where lots of people use that phrase to describe the furnishings of a room or pasture (for example, "Imagine, in this gilded paradise, loping across rolling prairie hills on one of Tinker's Tennessee Walkers"), but nowhere can I find out specifically what it means.
