@stevieb NO just no. Too gloomy for me.

@lovemygrands  It's not for everybody and I'd likely not choose this look for my own home, but, to me, it is an impressive space and with those large windows, it still would get good light. That said, no, I'd not have such dark walls. Had they not opted for such a dark stain on the boiserie paneled walls, the look would have likely been less oppressive.

Well, it won't very quickly show dirt and grime. The floors look easy to clean too; although, I think that the owner wouldn't be doing the cleaning.

Attractive in a dark way.  This looks more like a hotel.

BEAUTIFUL.

 

I think with windows that big the dark walls are needed to balance everything out.  Imho, light walls in this size space with the large windows would be horrible.

Well, since I generally run cloudy, to partly cloudy, the dark works for me. It IS elegant, but it's the bar that takes it to the next level. It's gorgeous. I can only imagine entertaining there. I bet that liquor is all Top Shelf, too.

It is elegant, and masculine. Not for my home, but very well done.

It's very elegant and attractive to me, but I have always thought that dark wood is very elegant and rich looking!

NO.  Too dark.  The seating arrangement is wierd with that sofa and gray pillows on it.  I am trying to figure out what design they are tryhing to achieve tieh the chandelier, sofa, stools -- strange.
