Pockets of Surprise

There are so many delightful things about this room (the high ceilings, the beautiful millwork, those fantastic arched french doors), but the real show stopper for me is the pocket doors. Can you see them?

Here's a closer look. How gorgeous are these?! The gold framed stained glass with blue around the edge is simply exquisite. And those gold door handles just gleam with character! (I'm still trying to decide if they're cathedral chic or Moroccan modern...)

Oh how I never tire of being surprised with unexpected details!

Hi Crystal,

Gorgeous pics... love your attention to detail. I had not noticed the door handles, which are just stunning, as is the crown molding and windows, beautiful!

Annie said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I agree with Crystal - I missed the door handles until you pointed them out - and they are just fabulous!

I am a big fan of pocket doors. Used to have them before I moved... now I'm getting nostalgic. :(

Thanks for sharing these beautiful images!

bronze and stainless steel line does make sense in this space, which merge little ice cube into the cocktail....

What a great room - so many beautiful elements from the ceiling height to all the natural light and the mouldings. I think pocket doors are ingenious and these ones are beautiful.

Wow, beautiful room! I love that leather sofa/chair/daybed? We have pocket doors in our new apartment but they are just wood, nowhere near as beautiful as these!

Jane Flanagan said...

I adore the top image, esp the wall colour and the moulding. Swoon!

Pocket doors are such a clever use of space. That photo wall has me something jealous.

Those are beautiful, I love the colour and I see what you mean about the style. I think cathedral chic sounds right!

By the way, yes....I really think we do need to meet one day! So many experiences to compare! :)

Wow - there is SO much to love in this room... The art, the pocket doors, the gleaming chrome finishes and vintage architectural details. Love it.
