room porn



This was the cover of Elle Decor a few months ago(one of only three magazines to which I actually subscribe...how gay is that?). It stuck in my mind for some reason.

I just like this room.
That's the only reason I've put up this picture. No deeper meaning than that.
Sorry.

It's also why I've just spent precious time I should be using to clean the toilet
looking up the decorator and then downloading photos from his website.
This is his own apartment, by the way, and not surprisingly looks better than any of the other places he's done. Why is that?
I love the mix of furniture, mid century, Victorian, and that velvet couch! I'm not too thrilled with the art work, however, but that could be changed. It's the palette of colors that intrigues me most, subtle but not too boring.

I live in a NYC rat-hole, so the first thing to hit my eye was the luxurious height of those ceilings! Love the palette too.

That's fantastic. It really captures my design philosophy - Put together what you like, disregard fads and your pad will truly be a reflection of you.

I love it. It's something my livingroom will never be--clean! ;)

Yep. That COUCH is something else. The pillows, too. Gorgeous.

I keep reading about Elle Decor in various blogs. Perhaps I will have to start reading it, as I love room porn.

Related, but slightly different, is furniture porn, which I also enjoy. House and car porn--also fun. Be careful with clothing porn, as it is close enough to real porn, and you may (if you're like me) just end up hating your body.
