The Opulent Aesthetic

The old, European cities of the world may be lacking bottomless brunches, but they’re bountiful of opulent interiors. So, while you may enjoy mimosas the size of ranch-style homes in America, gold-etched, crown moldings and Rococo are the Europeans cup of tea – and, I can’t say that I hate it. Here, marbled entrances and embroidered chaises delicately whisper, “I’m over-the-top.” While, dazzling chandeliers call your attention without poking out your eyes. That’s because, despite their opulence, European interiors feel subtle.

This, I found to be true in London especially. From Victoria & Albert’s to Harrods, I found that the interiors of this city’s buildings overflow with intricate ceilings and flashy entrances. Alas, I’ve selected my favorite pieces of architectural bacon for you to indulge in American-style.
