Detail and Gloss













A blanket of white coated in shiny detail and gloss finishes is like a little piece of nirvana to me. The sexy silver details at every turn, the glass kitchen bench, the gloss panels in the living room, are just the best application of glamour you could ask for.

I seriously can not get past that kitchen though. I like it when the struggle between form and function in a utilitarian room errs just a smidge on the side of form.

Another favourite morsel is the ball chain detail on the slip covered chair. Pure brilliance.

I admire your passion re: silver and shiny. I would just see fingerprints and dust (but heh, that just means I am a grub). Love the grey lounge chairs .. they get me smilin' (-:

I have a strange fascination with this kind of interior... sadly I don't I'm sophisticated to live in it, but I just ADORE it all the same! These images are stunning x

Good morning Jules! Thank you, this post was immediately useful for me - I have no less than three MASSIVE personal collages of a client's 'lost/happy years' to reinvent, aesthetically, and I think image 4 just solved it...x

Gorgeous with a capital G! Are these by Kelly Hoppen? They look very much like her style... bold, sexy, a little glamorous and masculine at the same time.
