Glamorous Decrepitude

So I'm officially obsessed with this editorial on Guillaume Féau of Féau & Cie Boiserie. I haven't been able to get the gorgeous, dusty panels out of my head since I saw them ages ago in the Sept '06 issue of House & Garden (oh man, I'm STILL mourning the loss). There's just something so architectural, so cubist, so...contemporary... about wooden panels, sans gold gilding, stacked and piled in all of their angular glory. There's also something really graceful about the contrast between the panels and that amazing exposed steel structure of the sky light. An interior with these elements could be so grand, in such an undone way.

I especially like the idea of grungy matte white/charcoal panels of boiserie, haphazardly layered and propped up against a wall as opposed to properly installed.

Despite my affinity for all things darkly romantic, I've really been feeling white lately. Is this a cause for concern?
