When I saw this space for the first time, my initial thought was, "Why don't that rug and table clash?" I like them together - very much - but taken separately, I wouldn't think to combine them. I think that it might come down to a sense of delicacy - the frame of the table and the sweet pink of the flowers fit well. But from a theoretical perspective, I might have thrown it out before it ever made it to the house!
There's a lot going on in this space and in theory, mismatched linens on the beds should be distracting. It's not, though, since the beds and the walls are a calming white, which provides an anchor for the color. Plus, even though the linens don't match, they do match in terms of color intensity and that makes all the difference.
In my mind, pink and red and gray should not work together at all. Pink and gray or pink and red, sure, but not all three. This room, though, with its careful blocks, has made me reconsider.
This is a store, so it's naturally busy, but I'm most interested in the pairing of multiple (intense) floral prints, right up front. In theory, it should be too many flowers and too many colors, but in reality, it travels past busy into fantastic.
I know that the fancy chandelier-rustic table thing has been done, and done again. It's not new. But this particular chandelier, with it's green crystals, takes things to a new level. If I saw it alone, I'd imagine that I wouldn't like it in a kitchen at all...but I do.
From a purely technical perspective, I wouldn't imagine that bookshelves on the ceiling would work. But aren't they great?
Imagine describing this room to someone. Wouldn't it just sound like too much? Too much shine, too much glamour, too much crazy girliness? But all put together, it somehow balances itself out.
From a practical perspective, an open shelf pantry sounds like a nightmare, or at least a recipe for a big old mess. But in this case, a little organization - and a whole bunch of baskets - turn the pantry into actual decor.
