Tinker

Here’s a screenshot from the undersecretary’s office in the atmospheric film adaptation of John le Carre’s spy thriller “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.”

The time is 1973, and the office blends the modern and classic in a compelling way. It also mixes black and brown, which is the color scheme I’ve been working on in my own place. The wood-paneled walls have elegant gilt detailing, while the chairs in the foreground are modern and there’s an abstract sculpture on the  desk (the saw-like item at center).

Original style comes from juxtapositions rather than following a formula. Don’t be afraid to tinker.
