There is talk throughout the Mohawk River house of a weekend trip to Paris soon... This reminds me of how much I love Parisian apartments with their grand parlors & ornate detailing. In my opinion, the juxtaposition of modern accents within storied walls is a winning combination.
B&B Italia's photoshoot for Maxalto perfectly juxtaposes a preserved plaster shell. The simplicity of the architecture works with their contemporary line.
Note how the brass detailing brings warmth to a white Interior. This is a nod to historical relevance, as well as adding a collected "layer" to the room.
