Or, this is so simple that perhaps it makes you think that you can do it too. And maybe that shows how well done it is.

The demarcation created by the horizontal line along the walls lowers the very high ceiling.
The white on the lower part allows the focus to be on the outdoor, while the choice of brown paint, and the imperfect line together with the imperfect finish on the upper part of the walls creates a wonderful connection with the beautiful imperfections of the outdoor wall of stones peaking through the door.
More horizontals in the chairs contribute to the same effect of keeping the eyes low and establishing a link with the stack of the outdoor stones, while the door and the table with their rounded lines introduce variety in form and shape.
The series of small paintings - one single word on an entirely black background set in a narrow gold frame - are a great detail that contributes to the whole feeling of silence and simplicity, yet their narrow gold frames add a subtle urban touch.
The table setting has the right note: rural, simple, basic frayed placemats, and pottery tableware.
