So the stylist says...


"Just park the dining table between the windows and we'll pretend it's a desk. The readers will be so blown away by the sheer awesomeness of the IKEA light fixtures, they'll never notice the weirdo placement."

I've always kinda hated those light fixtures....

Yeah, and no tall people allowed either, coz they will bang into the awesomeness of the Ikea light fixtures while swooning at the cleverness. Greetings from soggy Melbourne, Australia.

Dear Stylist,
I will never buy anything in this room because it makes no sense and therefore, it must all be crap!

Raina,
I share your irritation over what passes as a styled room!

Wrong, all of it, somehow.
A few good pieces, but placement makes it look like a generously-sized prison cell someone broke out of.

It's a little "Midnight Express", but with furniture.

I posted this same picture on my blog yesterday because I love it! I was talking about my desire to travel in the French countryside, and I thought this was the perfect informal, imperfect country home.

Usually I'm with you on the weird lamp placement, but I like it here.

lemondropdreams and dwr - Hello to both of you and welcome to this deliciousness!

I can't believe they actually send someone out to photograph this mess, put it into print and have people pay money to buy a magazine where this is featured... *Huh?!?!?*

The world's gone mad...
