{décor inspiration | before & after : the entryway at 47 park avenue}



. . . and after spending a blissfully relaxing weekend, [mostly] offline, did have a few moments to catch a quick glimpse of new things in the reader, between brunches and traipsing about at the shops and in the winter sunshine, and became engrossed in the dramatic transformation of this entryway in london . . .

[before & after, below] x

above: after, with the new chandelier installed

. . . and of course, could not help but wander around for a glimpse of other rooms in the house, and while some of the décor is more dark & dramatic than my light & bright sensibilities normally allow, for some reason, am quite rather drawn . . .

If I had a room with just the chandelier and burlap sacks for something to sit upon, I would be happy!
