There's something infectious about eclectic design; you know, that not-easily-recreated look in which classical usually abuts modern. The House Hotel Galatasaray, in Istanbul, Turkey, is a sterling example of this approach.
The hotel in a word? Grand. In two more words? Tastefully so. Original moldings are whitewashed and blend beautifully with exposed wood and refined modern sconces.
The renovation of this 120 year old space takes a refined approach in which only a tightly curated selection of classically modern lighting fixtures occur repeatedly in public and private spaces.
Intricate molding befitting a Turkish mansion may not be all that easy to come by in a contemporary house, but lighting fixtures with gold and brass finishes can evoke that classic yet modern vibe:
Twin Arm Antique Brass Raschella Table Lamp, Jonathan Adler Meurice Antique Brass Metal Wall Sconce, Dalton Satin Brass Arteriors Home Floor Lamp
...or if you don't feel like living with the look 365 days a year, book a flight to Istanbul. Remember to book your room in advance: the House Hotel Galatasaray has only 20 suites.
