Rough Luxe

I'm definitely a lover of the rough luxe look, It looks glamorous and yet not 'try hard'. I especially like this look in winter. it always brings to mind dark and moody but still cosy rooms.

Some of these rooms I'd give my right arm to relax in on a cold winters night

Although this look is laid back it's not the easiest to pull off. It's a delicate balance of worn elements mixed with newer more lavish pieces as well as the odd industrial element too. It was definitely an inspiration when we created our new Metallic candle holders.... We love that as they older they'll take on there own unique patina....

In our dream kitchen there would definitely be polished concrete worktops, molded handled gloss white cupboards, maybe a worn copper tap...... and bang up to date appliances mixed with a few old apothecary jars. 
What do you think of this eclectic look? I think its possibly like Marmite, you either love it or hate it and it's love for us!
