Who said a space had to be well put and “matchy-matchy” to be pretty? What would think of visiting such a raw space?
I can only speak for myself by saying that my first word would be “wow” and then “I am envious”. I am envious of the deliberate sense of style of the homeowners, of their confidence in assuming their bold choices of colour and of their keen eye in seeing how pretty old can be.
I love the juxtaposition of textures, the mix of eras in the furnishing and the over flowing amount of books that render the space so personal and characteristic.
I also love the craftiness seen in every piece of furniture on display. I don’t think one has been put there without some minor or major transformation from its original form. That to me is…art.
When it is all said and done, there are no rule in creating the perfect home. However raw or dishevelled the space might seem, beauty is only a chip of paint away.
