I would change the green to navy blue, put up some navy blue curtains and get rid of that huge map over the sofa.  I like it because it is my homeland, but it doesn't belong there.  It's too big.  It is a nice room.

Nice open space.  I like most of it esp. the pooch lying on the floor, the area rug & the patio doors at the rear.  Though I'm ot a fan of some of the furniture, it all blends very well.  A nice room to enjoy spending a lot of time in.

And, what's with this word "Fresh" to describe this room?  I keep hearing in reference to GILI merchandise,  etc.  

 

I looked up online and the Urban Dictionary defines it:  

 

"to mean it is acceptable and highly approved by someone. Orgin: Hiphop Mid 80's Ny

 

Fresh is derived as in the sense of seeing something brand new and is attracting people like cars in commercials. but is used to refer to anything highly approved by someone"

 

Who has highly approved of this room?  

 

 


ME!  I have green furniture in my livingroom, @ALRATIBA . so I highly approve, in fact, love it!Woman Very Happy

This bears repeating, @sidsmom 

I've often read that some folks, rather than focusing on decorating, as such, deliberately keep their rooms "quiet" in decor so that their guests or friends or family will stand out rather than the room.

Architecturally, I like the bones of this room. I also like the sofa, but wouldn't consider it for myself because it isn't oversized enough.

 

The upholstered chairs look like they are skirted swivel rockers which are not my style at all. The green upholstery looks a bit too Easter egg in it's color and the placement of the chairs for some reason reminds me of a nursing home. I am also not fond of the color of the wood tables, desk, etc.

 

From what I can see of the porch furniture, I like it very much.

I do like this room and the niche where the green glass is displayed.  Do you know if it's from a collection, or perhaps carnival glass?  I also like the light shade of green on the chair, ottoman and pillows and consider it fresh.  The fact it is dog friendly is a big plus.


@AnikaBrodie I like it too... Love the fresh spring green upholstery. As for the glass collection, the article stated it includes French pottery, American Lettuceware and British porcelain...
