This is such a gorgeous space.  The ceiling is masterful with its custom molding work.  The chandelier matches the wall paint so well.   At the center of the room is the ottoman.  It’s uncommon to see this any any design picture, but here it is right in front of us.  The shape being round offers great symmetry among all the other furnishings.
