We are totally into the rough luxe look. Maybe it because we live in a city the revels in the destruction of its heritage; erecting tall, ugly glass shrines to mediocrity. It also could be that it just looks freakin' cool...but I guess we'll never know to true reason. In the rough luxe look, the design rejects minimalism and extravagance, and celebrates imperfection. The march of time, aging, sun fading, cracking, distressing, all creating spaces full of character and charm. The book Rough Luxe Design by Kahi Lee does a wonderful job of visually chronicling some of the great spaces in this little discussed vein of design. You can see and learn more here.
