This is kind of a slap in the face to everything that is or has been Craftsman. The entire Arts & Crafts social movement - which Craftsman architecture and design is the principal exemplar of here in the US - is absolutely, 100% dedicated to avoiding this kind of room. "Have nothing in your house that is not both useful and that you find to be beautiful," as Mr. Morris wrote.

It was a reaction to the flowery, over-the-top decoration without purpose of the Victorian era. These rooms belong in a Victorian, not in a Craftsman home, whose original architect and builders would have been very sad to see this.

I'm glad it makes you happy, but really, there is NOTHING wrong with decorating a house consistent with its architectural style. This is the opposite.
