I’m spinning my wheels today while I get caught up on a few things so all I have for you this morning is a shot of a very pretty vignette I snapped the last time I was at Richard Cope’s exquisitely turned-out Toronto shop, Cose di Casa (204 Carlton Street).
Mike and I have a running joke we’ve been replaying ever since we saw an episode of defunct TV show, Design Match, in which Toronto-based interior designer Lois Macaulay expounds on the differences between classical (solid, masculine, straight lines) and lyrical (soft, feminine, curvy) elements of design.
Lois would probably deem this vignette to be lyrical although the straight lines of the mirror, the rough-hewn urn and the Greek bust reflected in the glass all feel classical to me. The tableau is beautifully composed, a quintessential expression of the tasteful, highbrow work that Cope does so very well. I’ll be back tomorrow with something a bit meatier.
