I think the upholstered walls are cozy, and I think the black bookcases keep it form going too country. Being a traditionalist I'm kind of exciting about seeing gingham again!

Kim - I don't dislike everything I post on YTP.

There are some elements here that are a bit off and I'm curious as to my Dumplings' thoughts.

I like most everything in this space. The pillow matching the wall kind of bugs me. I could spend hours trying to figure out what the painting is...is it a guy filling his underpants with fruit?? Is he riding some sort of animal?? That little table in the front, while functional in real life, isn't what I would put style the room with for a photograph. Seems out of scale.

The problem is the color of the sofa.

Yeah, I was going to say, "What's wrong with it?" and there was your (un)predictable snarky rejoinder.

Raina, you'd be a perfectly cast "immune" Bond Girl.

yes, i agree...it's the sofa! it would be awesome in a pop of some other color...red...or hot pink...or velvet purple!

and the pillow matching the wall bugs me too...it's like they had left over fabric and made a pillow. how bout a plaid or a tweed to contrast!

overall though, great bold pattern on the wall and i love that!

Love the black gingham, love the olive green velvet. It is the sofa that is too small for my brain.

The gingham pillow needs to get the boot, it makes the room seem trite. Love the contrast between the moody colors and cottage feel of the gingham walls. Laughing about Sanctuary's comment on the painting....
