Not working for me.

Take away the ugly rug,the curtains and these awful lamps (and "clean up" the cluttered table) and it could look really GOOD.

Not sure about the cupboard in the corner either...

But I dig the table itself and the chairs!

am i getting too old to "get it" anymore? how does one cobble together pieces, call it "designed by" and end up in a publication?!

looks like a marriage of schizophrenia.......

OK, I am totally digging this space. I love everything about it, actually. I like the collected vibe. I find most of the spaces here are totally contrived restoration hardware and it bores me. M.

For me it's the red chairs that don't work.... TOO modern to even add an edge to the room.

I'm on the edge of my striped seat; please pass the Le beurre. I'm almost certain that the sweat-stained, knit-balled, derriere exposing, red chairs once graced my insurance agent's swanky office. Corner cubbies add Granny Style charm.

I like the turquise/red/black and white stripes combo. NOT something I would do in my house, but it works.

BUT I would NOT have chosen wingbacks. Just scale wize they are too big. Regardless of mixing styles.

And I don't like ANYTHING that sits on an angle, so that buffet is not working for me.

The lights add a nice wimsy to the space. Made a good statement and work well with low ceiling height.

i guess the biggest thing that i'm not happy with is the scale of the wingbacks.

Brilliant.....looks "acquired" and like it's actually used...(now there's a novelty).....and it appeals to the anglophile/bohemian in me. This space has great dinner parties written all over it...k

Jessie said...

I agree with Cathy. I think the whole room actually works except for the red chairs. Okay, the rug should go too. I love eclectic and a mixed of patterns but the striped wingback chair and the rug together are not working for me!

oooh...! A yardsale!?!? I'm betting the dishes have masking tape sticker price tags on them.

I like the look of wing chairs at the dining room table but I'm not sure how functional they would be for daily dining - they seem too big and heavy to scooch up to the table. Not a fan of the red chairs - they're too officey to me. I love the trad table and the lanterns. Some great pieces - a little too much mix. I'd like to see some more traditional dining chairs.

Why the heck not if it makes them happy!

This space smacks of Domino circa 2008.
We've all since grown up quite a bit, honed our eye and learned to pare down and edit back.
I think that when overwrought eclectica threatens to take over, it's always safer to err on the side of staid classicism. Frankly a set of matching Chippendale chairs would've struck me as less self-consciously abrasive.
Perhaps this homeowner is still in the full bloom of youth and sewing her design oats.
But the only things I really dig are the rug and maybe one of the lanterns.

I find this all sorts of ugly.

La Boheme said...

Too much for my taste. There are many pieces that are actually quite nice but editing is necessary.
