12 Luxurious Interior Design Details: Tudor
While I love shelter magazines, design books, and inspiring photos of interiors online, there is also much to appreciate about plain Jane photos from real estate listings when you are curious about the design’s foundation and not necessarily all the finishing touches, yes? Such images are less likely to be retouched or over-styled as well.
We can actually see the materials and bones of the spaces without all the layering of art and adornment.
