{décor inspiration : ornate austerity}

. . . impossibly stylish and full of excitement, with a bit of scandal, of course.  I wanted the room to be just like Mick and Bianca: luxe and decadent, but with a rock 'n roll edge.


isn't this room astonishing?  designed by catherine kwong for the san francisco decorator showcase, and inspired by mick & bianca jagger in the '70's, it is the very definition of ornate austerity [here & here], with its dark and dramatic painted floor inspired by the paintings of cy twombly, gilded mirrors and crown moulding, and of course, glamorous bits of gold . . .
