Beautiful imperfection. A sublime series of rough luxe rooms by Barbara Davis. At times desolate, at others inspiring in its decay. Dreams and echoes. Calm. Romantic. Individual

"Dreams and echos." That is exactly what these photos evoke. So beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

I like these photos. They are very nice and elegant. I find that we can be inspired by the old and new, especially the mix of the two. Thanks for sharing!

I am all for romantic decay, except in the kitchen. That needs to be pristine.

agreed, raina. that kitchen gave me the heebie-jeebies.

I love love love this post. Beautiful photography as well as styling. I do have one comment though…I would have liked to have enlarged the images on some shown in the group arrangement on your blog. It's sad to see something so interesting and not be able to get a close enough look. Just a suggestion. Wonderful shots though!

Carolyn we can only show what is on the website and if that is the only size and way they are shown there then that is all we can do. If you went to the website you would see what I mean. I thought it was better to show a glimpse of their beauty than not to share them at all.

Industrial, patina, pretty, rough, perfect

I agree, brand new kitchens are almost a full time job to keep clean and tidy so one like that would be a nightmare. Otherwise love the images and photography 🙂

I love the rough rustic textures, however it needs contrast somewhere. I think a bright crimson hue on the peeling wall in the kitchen is a simple solution to give it that injection of colour and make the room look more fresh and inviting (and less dismal).
