WHAT’S SO WRONG WITH NEUTRAL?
In the February 2011 House Beautiful ,they feature a one day living room makeover. The house is located in Westport, Connecticut and the owner is a young, beautiful retail executive. The very talented Healing Barsanti http://www.hbhomedesign.com/ orchestrated the makeover. By now, most of you know that I’m a “less is more” gal and I’m all about neutral….with punches of color and lots of texture. I’m also not one for dissing anyone’s work or dissing anyone…I hate conflict. But, I can’t help but think that there is WAY too much going on in this space…The rug…I’m not a fan, is WAY too busy. The hardwood floors in this space are gorgeous….The purple….I’m not a fan of this either(with the blue) and the art work on the mantle….To me, and it’s just my opinion, there is too much pattern in this space and just too much…I do love the furniture placement , if you check out Healing Barsanti’s website , they have amazing beautiful spaces that really pull together a room…I’m just not sure about this one..
