Come in From the Cold: Dark, Cozy & Glam

A library, a fully stocked bar cart and a comfortable chair = perfect antidote to freezing cold weather. Love the dark wood and gold tones. (image from Canadian House & Home, photography by Ted Yarwood)

Isn't the candelabra in this powder room a great touch? For me, the sink and faucet are an unexpected pairing that work beautifully together.
