don’t mind the big ‘ole rip in this House Beautiful spread

i hardly notice it, since i’m busy soaking up all the details

matte black door, Klismos chairs with patent leather seats, traditional floral/stripe on that inviting armchair, zebra rug, high gloss floors, art selection and placement, warm console loaded with charming accessories…  you can learn quite a bit about styling a room by dissecting this shot.  the more you look, the better it gets.
