comfortable luxury

I don't know about you but when I think about luxurious spaces I think of rooms where I can't touch or sit on anything, almost as is I am in a museum. It isn't that I wouldn't like a few luxurious touches in my home (a gilt consul or crystal sconce, perhaps) but I also want a space that I can feel comfortable relaxing in. I think this loft has achieved what I imagined to be unachievable--comfortable luxury.

Love the balance of the antiques with the inviting and casual seating. I could go on and on about all the details I love about this room (the screen and that sidetable!) but I won't. Best yet, did I mention this style is proving successful in a loft?

This is defintly comfortable luxury! Velvet, gold accents, shimmering chandelier, plush pillows = LUXURY.

So many beautiful elements in these spaces and yet none of them dominate, everything works so well together. Thanks for sharing.

Ooh. I just received my issue last week and read it cover to cover.

I love the pop of red on the white palette and the use of gold in this room.

Ohh, looks like a rich friends' place, who will invite you up for take-out and let you wear your converse all over the place. Perfect mix of glamour and relaxation.

Comfortable luxury - I love that! I think that describes my goal for my house perfectly. I would never have known this was a loft if you hadn't told us.
