{décor inspiration: the return of romance}


" I think sophistication and elegance always last. For me, if I go into a direction that feels sexy or more “trendy” I try and infuse a feeling of sophistication to ensure classic style. For me this achieved through rich fabrics (silk, velvet, cashmere, boucle) great art (usually figurative and abstract paintings) and sculpture."
~ ryan korban


. . . and on this bright and chilly mid-january day, hopelessly drawn to romance of layers upon layers of luxurious and warm textures -- silk canopies and corduroy bolsters and faux fur throws, and velvet sofas intermingled with soft light and chandelier crystals and, always, always, bits of gold . . .

I love the idea of a drape around the headboard. I'd probably use a lighter fabric, but it is such a romantic concept.

I styled this apartment when I interned for Ryan a few summers back. This is kinda cool seeing it here. Happy Thursday! xx
