What Makes a Space Gorgeous?

I have a Pinterest board titled “Gorgeous Spaces” that I pin spaces that are gorgeous to me (makes sense, huh?). The point is, that sometimes I see a space that I love, but can’t really categorize it as gorgeous. Sometimes I would sit and think about what aspects of the space in image could influence me pin it to my gorgeous board. Instead of forcing it, I started a “Rooms” board of spaces that I like, but that don’t have the added punch.

Not to over-analyze my pinning habits, but more to step back and initiate a personal exercise of noticing what details of a space cause me to consider them gorgeous as opposed to just a space I enjoy.

So, I decided to go through my Gorgeous Spaces board and take notice of similarities, which were easy to spot immediately – fur, bright colors, intricate chandeliers, deep velvets, textures, crystals, mirrored furniture, a monochromatic color scheme. These qualities can be seen in any room, but what is it about them that makes them convert to gorgeousism? Perhaps I’m just putting too much emphasis on the dramatic difference, but there’s something about some rooms that I just can’t put in the same category as others.

So tell me – do you have different standards of spaces that you consider gorgeous in comparison to spaces that you just love? Really though, what makes a space gorgeous to you?
