A cosy Room with a touch of Nostalgia

Currently it seems that I have a soft spot for cosy rooms. Maybe it is the cold outside that has returned where spring temperatures should be dominant.
What I love here are the stucco ceilings and the touch of ease - nothing appears "staged" in this room, it seems to be totally natural. I also like the old apothecary cabinet that has been used here as a practical shelf/closet. And the small crystal chandelier adds a touch of nostalgia.
And of course I would add a piece of art if this were my room: a silk carving (bas-relief made of silk) that depicts an apsara face as a reminiscence of Angkor Wat in Cambodia with its many apsara wall reliefs.
