This room graced the March cover of Elle Decor magazine and I hesitate to include it as a Go Fug Your Room candidate because I like the unusual colour scheme very much indeed.
But I looked more closely and realised that I didn’t really like any item in this room. Every piece is just that bit too ornate and fussy for my taste. Too much piping, gilding, carved wood, embroidery, stuffing, inlay, pattern and stuff. Each of these pieces would probably work fine on their own as accents amongst plainer pieces, but together for me they all add up to just, well, too much.
I’m intrigued to know what you think, as I suspect that this room is really more ‘American’ in taste and I’m planning some blog posts about the differences between US and UK interior design.
Here’s the poll – if you feel like saying where you’re from in the comments that would be great.
