Frescoes at home

Passing by these window I couldn't help stopping and snap a few shots. The beauty of this building is really remarkable. Every detail is special, like the marble ornate balcony, the light paintings on the façade, the architectural features.

But, most stunning of all, and here I must apologize for the poor quality of the pic, is the frescoed ceiling. It can either be a home of some lucky family or a very elegant office, surely it is a very special place.

Beautiful balcony! The ceiling must be great too!

What a stunning building. Ooh, I would like to be invited in to see that room with the ceiling done so elegantly.

Well spotted! If it's an office, it would be quite a distraction.

ah, I really love the ceiling. GREAT that the light inside is yellowish and you didn't get too much reflection from the glass.

I am always a bit wary of these balconies. Despite my being an architect, I am suspicious of such precarious moments. 'What's holding this up?' is my typical thought, lol.

very romantic image!

The detailing on the balcony is so intricate and the light steaming from the open window above has a magical quality.

Great photo! Sure, the ceiling and the light from the windows is fantastic!

Now that is a beautiful work of art....isn't fun to be able to peak into the window of such a special place? In NYC we call that apartment envy! I am having a case of that right now!
