Interior: Masculine Mood

A little tour through an incredible home.

If you have been reading Haute Design for awhile now, you might have noticed that I typically enjoy a relaxed interior over one that is streamlined and exquisitely polished in every way. Relaxed, meaning, that nothing is too perfect. There may be perfect looking surfaces, but close by, drapey drapery in wrinkled linen or throw cushions, literally thrown, flowers in a relaxed arrangement, often draping here and there, over edges of vases, and blankets that might be unfolded—elements with a slight form of √©lan, or seemingly lived in, with ease. But…








This space, without a stitch of the "relaxed" element that I most often crave, has certainly caught my attention… its masculine tones and detailed elements prove to be quite captivating. (or maybe it's that stained glass window alone?) There are so many little and grand details to take in. Perhaps "decadent" is the best word? What details and features caught your eye? —I would love to know!

  1. Dearest Sarah,

    You will not believe what caught my eye... the ROUND kitchen sink! As long as we live in the USA I've never seen any. Ours came from Europe, we first had Dutch ATAG and now Italian ILVE. They can be found in my blog by just typing the word ILVE in the search box at the top.
    Hugs to you,

  3. This place is such a clever and timeless mix of classic elegant and modern.I see many different styles working together here.... Art Deco (light fittings, Rustic/relaxed (wood end tables, stacks of books on floor & mantle)Classic architectural elements (flooring, cornices, paneling)Modern (kitchen & bathroom).
    Sarah I think you like these spaces because they come together with such ease, nothing is contrived and the overall mood is "relaxed".

  5. Definitely the striped wallpaper and the statue are very masculine but they all flow together very well. I would live in this house in a heartbeat!
