Does that say 2007.....
I love the colour pallette, but you would know that..:)
The 2 foreground chairs actually I reaaly like this room except I wuld add a bit more green in little spots here and there and I would make the plant more leafy....possibly using a palm or the like.....
If that is 2007 it goes to show good style does last the test of time.

I love it, but so much white is a little blinding, I would add more pattern/texture I think. Also white on all the furniture: not a kid/pet friendly space. That being said, my living room/dining room is that palette more or less: white, Black, green accents

I love the rugs interplay, and the ceiling height, and the general feeling of simplicity, but I might remove the two foreground chairs, and swap the perspex table for something more earthy...

I love it,
but I would change out the rug and bring in a touch of muted colour (probably green).

I would then find a professional steam cleaner to become my new BFF to remove the kids stains!

I liked it the first time but on the second viewing I'm less enthused because it lacks an element of warmth. More colour and pattern in the furnishings, I say.

what I DON'T like is that my children would make that room look like the inside of an 1960's oven by the time the day was out....

So great to hear all your responses-thanks:)
Yes the cover says 2007 Elements.
I loooove this room. The only things I would change is the straight striped rug. I adore the Zebra stripe rug- I really want one of those but DH thinks I am mad lol.
Plus I would have a different glass table and more greenery.
I love the little chairs at the front and had some made up similar for a client. We were all thrilled with how they turned out.
I love black and white rooms and white furniture. Our couches are white but the dog and the child know if they make a mess their lives are over lol. Actually with the easy to clean fabrics around now I don't have a problem using white fabric.

Love the little armchairs. Love the stripes. Not too fussed on indoor plants but that's just me. Has a serene feel about it which draws me to it. A-M xx

I actually (don't all die of shock!) don't mind it...it feels light/open but I would have to get rid of the zebra rug, the stripey mat, and the striped and patterned cushions.

Oooh so glam. Love it! I love those creamy colours and especially those 2 chairs!
