Photo shoots are frequently staged with furniture and objects in places that aren't where they would normally be to make the overall effect fit into the view.

Lol. Ha! Great attention to detail. Great question. I agree with the staging answer. Haven't you every noticed in decor magazines photos of livingrooms. The coffee table is most likely WAY to close to the couch. Photographers usually "scrunch" everything together to get it all in without having to edit the size and shape of the printed photo. Love your question though. I notice this all the time and wonder why no one ever mentions it..... Ok. It seems I'm over a year late to respond to this, but there you go.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Paint it Black
Whether it be the deepest chocolate brown (as I suspect it might be here) or real-deal black, a white ceiling, wainscoting and linens work to keep the darkness from overpowering a room.
With its turned wood posts, this design falls a little more on the traditional side, but its placement in a sun-drenched room with dark walls, a vaulted ceiling and bright white textiles give it a New England-beachy chic that makes me want to climb in after a long day on the sailboat (were I in possession of a sailboat).
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to 9 Ways to Use Rich, Dark Paint
2. Create contrast. The deep reddish-brown tones on the upper portion of these walls are offset by the white wainscoting and the white wood ceiling. There's no better way to greet your guests than with a room rich in comfort, a little drama and all the amenities.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Brown
As long as there is plenty of light and some nice, crisp whites, a very dark brown can look fresh, rather than closed in. This is a lovely, traditional room, but it is not a bit stuffy.

I love the simple big personalised pictures on the walls either side of the bed. Not sure if chocolate walls work well her, because the wood four poster disappears.
