swatches

What does it feel like to be rich

with textured walls and tasteful, masculine leather

furniture that still smells like cow

with five bathrooms with sunken tubs

candles lit, champagne in crystal waiting on silver

Does the warmth spread through your chest all day long or just at sunset?

When can shut your door to the wind and lower dimmer switches and talk about fabric swatches

and little else
