Daily Pretty


Definitely a pretty room, but what most interests me about this one is the space planning. I really like the way the designer chose to mix things up a bit with the furniture placement. The two upholstered chaise lounges separated by the streamlined desk create a multifunctional space which still manages to feel open and clutter-free. Seems like a great alternative for that spare room that you don't know quite what to do with or, better yet, the perfect hideout for mama when life goes into maximum overdrive.

I'm with you. I really like the layout of the room - interesting. But, I could loose both greens comletely. I'm not a punch of color guy, particularly when the color is kinda ugly.

Oh I actually like the green a lot. The wall art... not so sure about. But whatever floats their boat.

Wonder if any work gets done at that desk??

I like the mama hideaway idea. I'm in agreement with Naomi - not sure how much work is getting done on that pristine desk.

I love the green and the fun placement- not crazy about the hanging green shade but other than that, I think it's fabulous.

Interesting. I love when people opt out of the ordinary.

That layout is really interesting. Maybe more showroom/photo shoot than actually livable.

It's the table that I LOVE. Mmmmm....

Less shiz to clean up, I'm for this being a kids room because they can destroy much crap in here. In fact I might remove everything from the destroyers room and just leave him a bed and desk.

I adore the fresh green. The room layout is fabulous. The framed art makes me swoon. I would hang out in that room all the time.

Love the size proportions of the furniture. It's amazing how sometimes spaces can appear a lot bigger with big furniture in it. Love the color combination also.

I can imagine the desk being a perfect little spot for dinner for two. Love the colours in the room.

I remember that room at the decorator Showhouse at the St Regis....it was cool! Small room....but it was just for "show"....

Oh me too, I love these kinds of rooms, like modern drawing rooms. Plus, such a beautiful color story.
