Antique furniture. Bedroom with parquet de Versailles floor. Long silk curtains. White library. Images like these make my heart ache a little and I always get the feeling that I was born in the wrong era. Someone would say that I could simply decorate my home like that but there are two crystal clear reasons why it's not happening. First of all, I would need a mansion. Second, these gorgeous antique things are way beyond my budget. Light years beyond!
Maybe I can afford one of those glass boxes in the first photo. I said maybe.
Antiques or no antiques, I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
