Pinned Image

I saw this image on Pinterest and unfortunately, I could not find the original source. All I know is that this is a Parisian hotel room, so if anyone knows the provenance of the image, I would sure love to know! Anyhow, let’s get down to business. The bones of this room are stunning—classic Parisian mouldings, high ceilings, a balcony overlooking a glamorous boulevard perhaps. I love the mirrored bed and the screen behind it. It’s such a fresh take on styles we’ve seen before. The classic linens are gorgeous and would look beautiful in any bedroom or hotel room. But can we talk about the elephant, or in this case, giant lamp in the room? The enormous floor lamp definitely makes a huge statement! I think the only place something like this could work might just be in a glamorous hotel room with very high ceilings, but I’m still not 100% sold on the idea. Is this essentially the same as some of what we see during Fashion Week every February and September—fabulous on the runway, but doesn’t quite work in real life? Is this a case of style over substance? Is this over the top fabulous or just plain over the top? Let’s hear it!

  2. I was also going to say that I thought I’d seen this in AD years back. Nice find, though! I personally LOVE the lamp and wonder if the branch fixture is a permanent part of it, or if it can be taken down?
