Elegance and Subtle








Understated elegance and subtle luxe finishes really are a killer combo when it comes to creating a stunning city home don't you think?

I'd love to be a bit more brutal in my home to have a simpler quieter look like this, but I know it wouldn't last very long. I shall just have to satisfy this part of my brain by admiring this kind of gorgeousness online.

Post edit: Thanks to Jo @ Desire To Inspire for letting me know that this is the home of Francesca Connolly, an editor at Remodelista. No wonder it is so beautifully put together!

Yes but it's understated on a grand scale. Those ceilings, those fireplaces, that huge space. Wow it's a gorgeous space. I don't think children live here!

I am like you and would like to be a bit more brutal, however I am finding everyday living and partner gets in the way. This is wonderful.

All statement pieces! Just look at the light fixtures!

And look at the architectural details underneath the staircase. I would trip often just by looking up all the time.

A warm hug to you,

Mon

I love this too but like you will have to enjoy and indulge in by looking at other peoples spaces. Most of these places have such great bones.... they look beautiful with nothing in them. ahh.

It belongs to Francesca, one of the editors of Remodelista. Lucky woman. The architect is Steven Harris. He does great work.
