Best of MI...Do you like the design of this room??

Best of MI series...March 2011

Its been a few days, but I'm back with another Best of series from two years ago. This was a great article in House Beautiful and I wanted your opinions. We have had lots of snow here in Downeast Maine and driving to work was treacherous this morning.  Have a great rest of the week!


I would LOVE your feedback on the design of this room in a house in Maine that is featured in the new House Beautiful...I am not sure I like the mix of furniture and styles in this room - it somehow doesn't seem to work for me. The Moroccan rug, the Saarinen table and the wicker chairs (which I love). Now, what also bothers me, are the floral curtains that really clash with the rather hideous Victorian settee. HB states that the designer Tom Scheerer "deftly put together a disparate mix in the living room of a coastal Maine house." Hmmm, just because its in this magazine, doesn't mean its true either right??  Do you think this mixes well?

The other rooms in the house are lovely...I would love to read your comments on this room...thanks for visiting me and I hope everyone has a great Friday!!

  1. I am not sure I like the cane chairs... they are almost a little heavy, I think?? It's pretty but not my favourite... xv
