We've posted on "disheveled chic" before. It's more elegant ancestor might be upscale provincial, or, more specifically as in the case below, Provence. Rustic, yes, but on a very tight leash. Unlike the work of Clarke and Reilly, here the disheveling quality is more compartmentalized and boundaried.
The scattered quality in the pillows, stacked firewood, and draped fabric is balanced by a line of black pitchers and architectural details on the walls.
The worn bench and stressed moldings along with the baroque chandelier and mirror bring together a mixture of high and low that society can only dream about; A fitting respite whether your afternoons are spent riding polo ponies or just shoveling their pens.
A flourish of olive branches brings the vista from the outdoors, in.
The scene below brings the disheveled into the realm of the formal.
