Ok, hold it there, I know what you’re thinking.
“Holy Marthastewart! It’s so nice, I want to buy it / I want to copy it / I want to morph my house into it.”
Now think twice. Who’s going to clean the windows? What are you going to do when your son starts practicing graffiti on the front wall? And who are you going to call when the roof starts leaking, the great Houdini?
Are you going to ask the Opera for a previously owned curtain to put in front of these windows?
And when a pigeon thinks those thin columns are actually branches and tries an improbable landing among them, are you going to call your rocket scientist friend to take the measurements of those curved and funny shaped glass panes you need to replace?
Come on, ornate as it is, it’s fine where it stands. I really can’t see you mopping, frying pancakes or enjoying some good reading in the toilet, in there.
