This room defies all design principles and I think that's why I love it so much! It feels so perfectly symmetrical, cozy and conversation friendly, yet it is not your typical two sofas facing each other flanking the fireplace. Here are some of its design elements that go against the rules: sofa table is too big area rug is too big there is no pattern the lantern is too big and hangs in an unusual spot the curtain rods and curtains don't all match there is no repetition of colour other than two red chairs there is traditional mixed with modern mixed with rustic
I think not following the rules makes for a way more interesting space, especially today. I just love this space!!
