Interior: Sumptuous










Luxurious restraint.

I could not think of a word more fitting for these images. A grand scale of fortunate proportions and the generous use of space seem to draw more attention to the carefully chosen materials as well as the details. We notice repetition, scale and strength of line... and to finish, natural hues of wood, with neutral stone, tile and glass, joined with rich velvets and leather—the mood is nothing short of warm. what stands out most to you?

  2. That is a wonderfully luxurious velvet sofa... a wide arm to rest a cup of tea on together with your book or magazine. And someone to watch over you above... Lovely.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. I love all the brown. Brown is totally underrated. It goes with anything and it feels so rich and warm. The simplicity really gives a certain zen quality.
