does anyone know anything about this room?

is it a hotel?

i adore it.

the inlaid tables, the graphic fabric on the chairs,

and ESPECIALLY those all black chairs!

they totally keep this room from being too sickly sweet..

that and the quirky photography.

it's very romantic and over the top. 

not at ALL what i would normally love.

i think you could translate this room into a more realistic version for your own home beautifully..

or i could.


*****UPDATES!  this room belongs to alexis and trevor traina.  they live in san fransisco and they are stupid rich.

this photo is from a vogue magazine shoot.

thank you valerie!
