SS : This project differs from the likes by 2 very important principles. It’s a sufficient number of the decoration details, high density of things, located at the small areas and despite of that fact, this project doesn’t look oversaturated. Also this project is about rather complex blend of undertones of the grey shades with brass shades and golden tones. Essentially, it’s a monochrome implementation with the bright golden shades. But in this that project doesn’t look boring , cold or colorless.
