Wow @Kachina624 Heart  this is beautiful . . . I agree with you . . .  the other photo seems a little too "drab."

I absolutely love this room with all the soft shapes and the piles of books. But if you took away those two poles behind the couch--what ARE they?--the focal eye interest would be gone and then the room would be really blah.

I'm not always a big fan of blue, but this is a great room, even though I'd skip that particular coffee table and change out some of the throw pillows...

Sort of a slight steampunk vibe too... I like the room. I'm pretty tired of the whole run of the mill shabby chic look, but this is appealing for me.

@SPURT  All the light from the big windows washes the little color it has out.   The sofa needs to be colored.

@AuntMame  A patterned rug with some color would do wonders for this room.

That is either a really HIGH ceiling.........or a really short person decorated it!

 

(I'm 4' something...........so I'm aware I need to place "things" like pictures and mirrors higher than *I* think they should be.   I also mix in stuff "my size").

@lolakimono

 

I don't think I care for the room. Having lived in apartments most of my life and having had white walls forced on me, I really don't like them. 

 

The look seems stressful to me. Cluttered, unfinished. Not for me.
