This is not my favorite either. The different colors and textures set my teeth on edge a bit. But I do like looking through the doorway & seeing still more shelves in the next room! And they do look like real books.
I love love love this room…with the exception of the pink elements, and the overly draped chair and sofa. The only reason I don’t have a room that looks something like this now is my husband would be sneezing constantly. Or maybe it would be me that was sneezing. :o)
Just a tad over-stuffed … but I can see how this can happen. Obviously the home of a collector and not simply a book collector. Mind you, you’d never be bored here. When there’s nothing you want to watch on TV there would always be something worth looking at here!
This is a little over cluttered for my taste, although I’m prone to collecting bits and pieces and leaning small pictures on the bookshelves. I don’t like the pinks either and I hope that’s not a real cat skin on the back of the sofa. When I see a room like this, I wonder if they have a housekeeper! It must take forever to clean it!
Way too much stuff in that room for me. I have a headache just looking at it. I’d take all the things off the couch, reupholster it in a solid earth-tone. Then get paintings off the shelves. I’d take one-half to two-thirds of the stuff (besides the furniture and books) out of this room. (Yes, the dust would get to me, too.)
