Portuguese lighting brand Delightfull pairs Gardenia with solid white surfaces, pale wood, golden marble, white, and metallic accents to create a luxurious setting that remains welcoming and approachable. Gardenia goes well with all metallic finishes, as seen in this living room. Fashioned after the shape of trumpets, the Botti floor…
