See So Much










I love the cinematic quality these stunning images hold. That beauty that speaks louder than the initial recognition. You don't just see the tattered wallpaper, the flaking gilding, or the dust swept floors, you see so much more.

These images are from a book called Romantic Irish Homes by Robert O'Byrne. I stumbled across them at the site of the photographer Simon Brown, who had shot this gorgeous home that I showed you the other day.

So much detail and texture there. And such a contrast to some of the very smooth rooms of earlier this week.

There's something about these images that has stolen my heart. Each of the rooms is a place I'd love to wander through or write a story about. Something...
