Double-height living room with built-in bookshelves high up on wall that are accessed by a ladder (I've always wanted a library tall enough that it requires a ladder!) Grey grasscloth-covered walls, tufted bench as ottoman and modern chandelier
Paris apartment designed by Double G. Photo by Helenio Barbetta. Love the black and white. The use of the black rug on the black floor gives interest without chopping up the room. The fish better light up- or they are just weird with no function.
That Pottery Barn candle chandelier is perfection. My favorite design feature is the stone fireplace, it's so dramatic and rustic. These high ceilings are fantastic, totally transforms the space into more than just your typical living/family room.
