The thing that attracted to me to these two images is the intricate detailing that they hold. The use of the muted tones in both allow the beauty to shine through. I’m mesmerised by the craftsmanship that has applied to create such visually stunning pieces.
So, many of you may be asking yourself what is so interesting about the underground service…well, this! These simply stunning images are from the underground system in Moscow, Russia. This form of transport is dubbed ‘the people’s palaces’ with, what can only be described, as the most ornate mode of getting around in the world! If you’re lucky enough to ever travel the underground, you’ll be met by shining examples of Soviet art and style, including bronze sculptures, chandeliers, Florentine mosaics and stained glass.
I really love the simplicity of this image – there are no trinkets or treasures to detract the eye from the beautifully carved fireplace, or the intricate wooden flooring. The idea of stacking high several piles of books to create a coffee table in the centre of the furniture is as simple as it is inspiring…
Adding multiple narrow rugs to a hallway or corridor is a genius way of allowing the eye to work along the area to an eye catching piece. In this instance, the chair welcomes the viewer to the end of their journey. I love the bright, modern rugs and chair fabric as a contrast to the ornate and vintage details.
