I think it's absolutely beautiful. And it's girly, but not in an icky way. So many french-ey feminine apartments have a fussiness going on that is totally emasculating. I usually cannot picture myself having sex in a feminine french-ey space.

But the difference here is wit; the designer here has a great sense of humor about her space, the subtext is very WTF...rock and roll.
I think humor is the rarest element in design. Hard to pull off with a such an effortless light touch. Much harder to pull off than the turquoise sofa, the gnarly cocktail table, or a giant fly. The elements may be by themselves dissonant, but the hand of the editor has made a space of wit and beauty.
Bravo Suzi!
