Something to Inspire

I absolutely adore these pictures so i had to put them up, i don't know about you but they inspire me.. These pictures are of the Beaux Arts mansion Ralph Lauren built on the upper east side of Manhattan.The grand Beaux-Arts store is designed after architecture of the early 20th Century. The Beaux Arts styled limestone building was a collaboration between Weddle Gilmore and architect Thomas Hut of HS2 Architecture. This mansion is said to be a elegant tribute to French style from vintage jewellery to chinoiserie wallpaper. I love every inch of this and how it's been decorated from the marble floors to the amazing crystal chandeliers. From crisp classic to chic and sleek.  What more can i say take a look for yourself..
