Rooms that are unexpected, functional, edited and whimsical. Rooms that make you want to ask the owner stories about how they found everything in them: from art to ashtray. Rooms that are as layered as a classic Russian novel and as accessorized as fine French couture. Rooms that make you want to seize the day and yet never leave their confines. Rooms that are so personal, you could pick their owner out at a crowded party without ever having been previously introduced.
