Opulent Victorian Home

Designer Annie Brahler’s home in Jacksonville, IL, is utterly glamourous and unabashedly romantic with chandeliers in abundance and dreamy pale shades of pink and beige throughout.  The gilded accents, antique furnishings, and original plasterwork give the home old-world character and stately appeal.  Full story and more photos of the home, beautifully captured by photographer Björn Wallanderhere.

A Grand Parisian Home

Images of this Parisian home have haunted me ever since I first laid eyes on it and recently happened upon more details here.  The velvety-golden sofa, gilded details and old world moldings evoke rich history, with modern shapes of the furnishings blending seamlessly to create a grounded approachable space.  It is utter perfection.
