its like a spinning vortex from an alien planet, sucking me in to its evil.

Having said that maybe if it was in southern Spain in a hot climate Or Something it would work.

I really like it.

There's not one thing I particularly dislike. The only thing I'm not a big fan of is the koi table, but if it has to be in the room, the finish in wood is better than the other koi tables I've seen.

Looks like William Randolph Hirst has come back to life and spent the last decades as a spider in the netherworld.

Like a cozy 1st class lounge at Idlewild airport.

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

For whatever reason, it doesn't offend me. I think it's a clever conversation piece (albeit a rather permanent one) Then again, maybe I just haven't had enough coffee, yet.

You know if you get anywhere close to the opening it will suck you in, never to be seen or heard from again! I also get the sense it leans or rather looms forward. Too imposing.

Jane K. Schott said...

Just a bit overwhelming to me....

I'm expecting Keith Lockhart to emerge behind that...wall, which looks like the Hatch Shell in Boston, Keith's homebase.

Appletree said...

I'm intrigued by what might be behind the vortex. The wall of windows and all that light.

whitecabana said...

Gosh - your readers have some hilarious comments! I agree with Appletree - the wall of windows looks pretty cool. Why cover up the light with a massive fireplace wall?

what is this, charlotte's web?

Mandi Smith T said...

Actually, I'm diggin' it. I think the style and layout of the furnishings along with the focal wall are pretty awesome.
I always ask, "Would I enjoy hanging out in that space?" The answer on this one is "Yes!" As an aside, It would make having drinks really fun. The room would spin waaaayy early for me! M.

oh this has to be fantastic in person!
i remember that from an issue of m. stew.
i thought it was interesting and beautiful.

Not really digging the spider web looking fireplace, but the coffee table is awesome.

The Down East Dilettante said...

Oh dear, everything that's old is new again. This reminds me in effect of the gigantic, overwhelming fireplace surrounds designed in the late 19th century by the great architect H.H.Richardson---hulking neo-Romanesque affairs---magnificently designed, but just a little overwhelming for daily life...

Paul Anater said...

It looks like something from the set of Braveheart, only someone bleached the wood to make it look more "Coastal."

spider web of doom.

susieq said...

Good. I'm glad most people don't like it, because I want it badly. I remember the entire room and house and love it. But, I'd ditch that dolphin side table.

Alison said...

I love it and I want to rub my face on that sofa. But yea, the dolphin or dragon or whatever table has got to go.

nkp said...

Exactly what Susie said. I remember this, in fact I think I once posted it from a different angle. I think it is ridiculous in the best way possible. But, buh bye Mr. Fish.

Fantastical! Beautiful thinking. I love how the homeowner no doubt loves and enjoys their space. I imagine they sit and contemplate the big idea of the fireplace surround and the details of the interior. I would if I were a visitor.

Petra Voegtle said...

Wow - my first reaction was similar to Jane's in the first post - i.e. I had the vision of an experiment with a time machine - a bit creepy...

erin@designcrisis said...

I will take it. Give it to me. With the help of a little gold spraypaint, I can give that dolphin table a home, too.

i think it's awesome that 3 of the c'nuts liked it...raina???

Raina Cox said...

MFAMB - Love the surround. Think the furniture is completely wrong for the space. OK, the cocktail table can stay.

Raina Cox said...

missmarti1121 - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

Charlotta Ward said...

Loving the individual elements but think there are too many patterns happening.. Not that they are intrusive but they annoy me in a vague way.. Like a whisper.

The pillows need to be changed for one. The tub on the left also.

The only bit I am not nuts about is the rug.. A bit bland though I don't mind the colour at all. It's more its personality.

I had no idea Busby Berkeley did interior design!

That fireplace makes me speechless
