I'm Floored Again !

I saw this and was absolutely floored by this beautiful space. The stone floors , the patinas that make up this area are soothing to me.
The shape of the staircase , even the hand rail on the staircase is beautiful. I would love to see the rest of this place. I am intrigued.

"Quarried from the seventeenth century in the Languedoc region of France, this stone was used extensively for flagstones in the grand country houses of the area. Today, Antique Barr is reclaimed by a small bands of gypsies and it is as a result of Paris Ceramics’ close contacts in the area that the company is able to control the supply of this stone.
Unusual for its consistent richness, texture and patina from floor to floor, this is one of the few antique flagstones the company is able to supply on a regular basis.
Available in Antique Blonde Barr (large hand-shaped flagstones laid in coursed lengths) and in
Antique Dalle de Blonde Barr (random sizes), these flagstones are in varying tones of golden-beige."

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
