i’m really attracted to honed finishes, they have such a natural appeal, also so silky soft to touch. although, perhaps a little more maintenance, i’d say well worth it. to me, one of those obvious choices- can’t imagine having gone for a polished finish- would i ever have? i’ll say there was a point when i would’ve opted for a high gloss paint- those days way gone too, matte all the way. everything looks so dreamy, almost like a permanent slightly blurred filter creating a serene lightness.
