utterly elegant





















This has got to be one of the most elegant apartments I have ever laid eyes upon. From the subdued colour scheme to the gorgeous mirrors, touches of gold, and beautiful details throughout, this home seems to be bathed in an air of serenity and grace.

A lovely French console table used in the entryway inspired the home's decor. I love the wonderful use of every inch of space, such as a nook for drinking glasses, and the clever desk/ dining table for two attached to a sideboard. The kitchen is just adorable. Every detail works beautifully, but my favourite bit is the patterned backsplash. After seeing these spaces, I'm dying to go up those stairs to see what fabulous rooms must surely be up there, as well! Maybe we will be lucky enough to see more of this lovely home soon.

This incredibly stylish home proves that great things really do come in small packages.

Such perfection in this palette. I wish I had the discipline to do this -- maybe in a 2nd home?
