This room is utter visual perfection in my book. Well, kind of. The scale is just right, the horizontal and vertical lines are in perfect balance. It's palette is soothing, the textures are warm, and that glossy black vase with flowers makes me swoon. But then, when I ask myself if I'd be content living here, something tells me no (can those chairs actually be comfortable?).
Perhaps something a little more like this. The colors are the same, the point of view not too dissimilar, but the feeling is so much more livable. It's the curve of the English roll arm chairs, the plushness of the blankets, and the slightly more relaxed layout that invite me to come in, relax and make myself at home!
So, what do you think? Is it just me? Which one would you rather live in?
