Some light

Posted on Tue, 27 Sep 2011 by KiM

This is the first of 2 posts I have for you today. There is such a huge difference in the mood of a space depending on the colour scheme used…whether it be light or dark. This space is all about white and beige. Classic and French-inspired. The perfect space for a bookworm (although it could use some work – some of the furnishings are just plain icky).

I don't think anything is icky. The matching look may be a little too dull, especially with those faded colors, but in the whole it's a pretty cute room with a nice color scheme and interesting and original details. I particularly love the lamps and the bookshelves are just gorgeous with some great books and beautiful art.

Cussot, you make me smile, and I really need it, thanks!
I love the coffee table, the drawer? under the mirror (but i will remove those books) , the basket full of log (even I couldn't fing the fireplace) the artwork hanging on the bookshelves (although it will choosea a couple less and smaller) and the cat…
But I will remove some lamps, at least the one that came with a table, some boos, and I will be more bold with the upholstery. Just saying…

Put me down for "icky".

That poor kitty in three of the photos is not even on the furniture. The sofa and chairs look icky and itchy. I would not want to sit on them either.

The walls would look better white (not that off-grey) and the place is way too cluttered and dingy looking.

Maybe it is staged for an estate sale?

Hard to get past the matching sofa and chairs, put me down for "no" on those. And it's too cluttered for me — or if you want that much clutter, it needs to be more carefully curated. I'd like it a lot better if they added a color – like a palm green.

I'd add more books.

funny bout all the "icky" comments. I just would like to get me a high-back couch like that… but in a different fabric of course!

A pet peeve = framed art hung in front of books on bookcases. WHY do people do this? To me, it shows disrespect for the books and the art alike.

LIGHT and BOOKS and ART!!! OH MY!!!!!

Melanie says:

Hanging art in front of books is stupid. How is one to see the titles of the books let alone easily get them off the shelf to read. I love to read and I refer to many of my books everyday for my writing. I want my bookshelves to be full of books arranged by subject so I can find them and no art getting in the way. I like art but not displayed in front of my books.
