Muriel Brandolini Dining Room

Okay, the intense color of designer Muriel Brandolini's home dining room (circa 1999) doesn't really need much by way of description: pinks, reds, oranges and yellows - and enough pattern to keep your eyes busy for hours. Beyond the brave exercise in color, we are mostly curious about a bed in the dining room. The red lacquer four-poster bed was placed just behind the dining table so that "one can recline after supper."

Do you think this idea ever works? Unless you live in a very small space, do you think dining and reclining should coexist?
