Inspiration: Ornate and Modern

Inspiration: Ornate and Modern

When it comes to mixing different design styles and eras, there's a fine line between inspired and overwhelming. We think this room manages to dance all over that line, though, for a magical result.

If someone showed us a color chip of this pink, we'd be hard-pressed to come up with much other than some kind of fairy princess room. But we love the play with the chartreuse of the chairs and the graphic rug. The embellished sconces juxtaposed with the convex mirror and modern chandelier shouldn't quite add up so well, but they do. Maybe it's just us, though - what do you think?
