An opulent Lady's Boudoir

This could be the lady's bedroom but it also could be a very generous guestroom for very special guests in a home where hospitality is considered an important virtue.

I love the colours and the aura of this boudoir and the original very decorative paravent that was placed in the same position of this room. But if this were my room I would add just a tiny bit more contrast and drama, a bit more material for your imagination. And what could be more appropriate than an interpretation of one of the most famous loving couple: Krishna and Radha from the Indian epic Mahabharata.

This precious paravent has been hand carved in many hours. It consists of 3 panels. It has been glazed with an ivory colour, patinated and waxed so that it looks like old ivory.

This is such an elegant bedroom... I'd feel like a queen if I slept here!! I really like the wall colour, and love the side table vignettes on each side of the bed. The detailing at the tops of the walls is really pretty too.

You made good points about the Origami House. For sure a house should be warm and cozy -- hard to accomplish when you're surrounded by windows!! But the light and open feeling of the house must be amazing :-)
