The word "palace" in title doesn't refer to size, but to stature. Because let's face it: Lots of the homes in these photos are actually quite massive. But they're also pretty normal-looking. These rooms aren't stately or overly opulent–they're simple and relatable, just really, really well-designed. Let it inspire you to bring a bit of glamor home with a dome.
