I don't think the photo actually belongs to the subject of this post.

I also don't think there is any real substance to this post.

The curtain rods are not extended long enough, looks really awkward in that first photo. But this is a fun, colorful home.

I love Mary McDonald!. But who's the woman in the photo?

Going to have to give this trend a minus.

This is all rather un-beautiful.

Is this a light-quality issue? I see that you have two windows, but what sort of light do they bring into the room?

I would actually do a darker/ warmer color on the wall (just because it will make your space feel cozy), rather than a white or a bright color. White walls or a bright color on the walls for the sake of making a room with low-quality sunlight look "brighter" usually has the opposite effect -- I found this out the hard way.

For more brightness, I would just buy more lamps. Sconces, table and floor lamps. Plants should help, too.

But good luck whichever way you choose to go. !

I feel as though I should like this more than I do. All the elements are there that I love: architectural detail, un-fussiness, hardwood floors, plants... why can't I love this?

Is one allowed to wear a sad face in this home?

The "Life is Good!" written on the chalkboard is kind of funny. In my current domus, I would probably have to write something less optimistic, like, "Life is painful."

The Master bed is sold through American Iron beds: I knew that immediately as I've sort of been dreaming about that exact bed for months! ;)

@ truemuse: You've made me laugh.

I would like to see more originality on apartment therapy, though, now that you bring it up. It's like everyone has the same hipster/retro/cutesy taste (no offense to Amy).

I can't with the giant calendar above the bed. I see those and immediately start to panic... not romantic, not calming.

I've heard that the only way to add light to a room that gets no natural light is with electricity (lamps, lamps, lamps): yellow or cheery paint colors won't help... in some cases, they make the problem more noticeable as they come off merely dingy.

Lovely room, though.

Seems rather hard to think and "chill out" in those maximalist bedrooms....

Oh! Thanks for answering my prying question. :)

BTW, I love your windows.

The toddler's section is super-cute. I like your ceiling. Do I see 2 headboards?

Sorry about the 2 comments. I got an error message with that first comment. But it's cool how Apartment Therapy won't allow me to delete the duplicate sentiment.
