Um, I want to live here. This room is designed by Emily Henderson for an iRobot Roomba commercial. It is not perfect for me, but that’s why I love it. Crazy beautiful color palette. The mixture of the feminine pink with the masculine wood tones. Perfect. Those chairs totally wouldn’t work in my house but I love them here. The lighting is great because without the natural lighting this space might look a bit dark. This room also proves to me the importance of timeless lines. If you stripped this room of its “on trend” accessories (gold planters, throw pillows, and artwork) you’d be left with the substantial pieces (couch, end tables, chairs) as a base for something you can build/add on. What I mean is, in my opinion, good design equals great foundations. Rooms that lend themselves to being super transitional as trends change. Such a beautiful space.

    I really enjoyed this room. It is so natural, effortless, and serene- but lively.

    Thanks for sharing!

    This is a great room, from the colors to the furniture to accessories chosen for it. The grey walls charmed by the bright aqua rug and throw on the sofa offer a very pleasing palette. The mid-century modern feel so comforting and I love the final stop with the green chair.
