September, Sherwin Williams set design style forecasts for 2010 forth. Among the very fascinating was the “Treasured” tendency. That is the way they explain it:

“Treasured” is the third style, where normal aging and weathering accentuate the layout. Where the first layers of paint and historic wall paper are nevertheless noticeable on the walls Jordan mentions the Tough Luxe Resort in Great Britain. This ‘less-than-best aesthetic’ also comprises using distressed leather, classic tapestries, found items, and patina.”

This reminded me of a classic favourite ideabook here on Houzz – “Sophistication and Decay.” It’s packed with cool pictures of spaces which are just beginning to really go to destroy – a strong blend. I have nabbed one or 2 of the pictures for this ideabook, and added even more:

This chamber, using its peeling paint and haphazard sophistication, is the prototype of “treasured.”

Pewter and vintage silver include gravitas and age to any chamber.

I really like the concept of utilizing a vintage burlap cocoa beans hammock as art – particularly when its paired with this particular wood framework that is rough. Better? Sticking at it chandelier.

This bedroom (which belongs to celebrity Virginia Madsen), has partitions that completely capture that look of aged grace.

It is a popular photograph on Houzz – and and it is not difficult to find out why. This chamber combines the very best of the “treasured” tendency (that remarkable dining table) using a clean, up to date area.

Old houses, like that one in Prag, will be the essence of “prized.”

A standalone bathtub and sinks with open pipes interpret “weathered and valued” for the bathtub.

This hearth, in its glory that is Baroque, is a section of a classic mansion in Paris. Can not you only picture the upclose see, with levels of paint? I am convinced in the event the hearth could speak, it might tell some stories that are astonishing.

This classic chandelier is totally and fondly maintained – “prized.”

Busybee Style

I really like the way this midcentury seat (and its excellent colour) work with all the peeling blue paint of the cupboard.

That is my own sugar chest (I use it as a liquor cupboard). Itis somewhat beat up around the borders, but this is undoubtedly a part of its appeal.
