I am amazed at how just a few elements can express a sense of  interior.  Wallpaper, the corner of a picture frame, a chair and its shadow – they are enough to convey the atmosphere of the room and taste of the owner.

壁紙、額縁、イスとその影。ほんの少しのアイテムとしつらえを描き出すだけで空間が出現して、部屋の雰囲気とか住んでいる人の好みがすっかり分かる。そういえば、インテリアってそういうものかも、、と思ったりします。

それにしても、ビーダーマイヤー様式が「簡素」の表現だったとは。たしかに、さらに以前は室内空間はもっと装飾的だったのですね。
