Yes or No?



I can't decide if I love it or if it's just too blue & matchy?

Overdesigned?

1. JAMES, TURN OFF YOUR CAPS.

2. It's too decorator-y.

I'm a sucker for blue, but those lamps with that matching canvas thing is way too much! I would stick a different painting in there and the room might get more depth. I'm not a huge fan of the furniture and the whole "sea cottage" vibe, but it looks clean and uncluttered which is everything that I'm not.

I love the blue, but the room is too cold.

marc said...

Pretty, but too much symmetry for my tastes.

skywaykate said...

Either there is too much sunlight or the white paint is too white...otherwise I really like it.

Like kristin, I'm a sucka for blue.

Too blue, I would never be able to relax. Tone down the artwork but leave the lamps. I love teal, but for some reason all blue rooms have no appeal to me.

It's too bright and sterile. I think it might possibly help if the floor had some color to it.

The only things I really like in the room are the lamps and the artwork, though.

Jean said...

Yes. I wish the walls weren't quite so stark white and I'd lose the stuff between the lamps, but the room's not obnoxious. Besides, that's my favorite color blue.

I don't think you can "tone down the artwork."

alis said...

It's not bad. Too blue, I would lose the canvas, change the matchy lamps and get rid of the weird acrilic side table. I do appreciate how airy they managed to make this narrow little hole though.

I always love Suzanne Kasler's work.

No. But for me in general less is more.

Nina79 said...

My suggestion: just one lamp and one picture. The space seems to small for those 2 pictures together and I don't like that dark chairs.

It's just not livable.

It's got too conflicting vibes. The foreground is classic and elegant and the background is beachy. Ginny

Decorina said...

Not for me. Too much blue. And too much stuff - 10 pounds of design in a five pound bag. No.

Alex said...

I think too much blue, take all the blue away, EXCEPT the blue lamps and the canvas. I think something like that brings a spark to the room. As long as there isn't TOO much, it's brilliant.

A little too matchy. But would I take it? Probably.

Ivy Lane said...

no..too crammed...like the lamps though!

erin@designcrisis said...

Blue is so harsh unless it's paired with warm colors. I like the lamps, though.

Carrie said...

With 30% less stuff I'd like it.

Wish I had one of those chairs in my bedroom.

It's pretty and orderly to look at, but lacks heart and soul. Needs to loosen up a bit; needs texture, contrast and more of a lived-in patina. Needs to lose some of the sterile crisp-ness.

I just saw an ultra-blue canvas like that at Z Gallerie. "Nuff said.

I was, um, just there, um, with someone ELSE who was, um, looking for some -- let me think, what's the most inocuous thing there? -- who had to use the REST ROOM. Yeah, that's it. I, um, WE were just there to use the rest room.

Haute Decor said...

NO. Uninspired and predictable. The matching to one's art is a decorative capital offense!

It is way too cold and has no feeling of being a room for people. It is a room for posing a picture. It seems to me that the room does not now what it wants to be. maybe when it grows up.....

Despite my deep adoration for blue, I can't get past my annoyance at the wood cabinet. It's like playing "Which one doesn't belong".

That plays a big part in the too "decoratey". Meh.
