What is it?


I'm really liking the non-gender specific look of this room.  Boy, girl, young, old- it could be for anyone.  I like how the frames are propped up against the end of the bed, so casual and yet so done on purpose yet it works.

Looks like a perfect guest room. Cozy. Love the color of the walls. Kind of masculine and not...

I think that used to be the babies room, but now baby is grown up and gone so the lady of the house made a room to welcome any guy or doll.
I love the dog sketch on the wall and the black and white plaid make it so cozy-

Nice mix of pieces, like the HUGE pillow and the smaller mirrors about the bed, the unique chandelier and flower arrangement with almost looks like a chicken. Are my eyes playing tricks on me?

I really like the over-sized pillow with the fun trim. That floral arrangement really does look like a chicken? Wish I could bloe it up and look closer!

The wall color is gorgeous.

I think it looks like a college-age, slightly feminine guy :) I do really like it, though.

I'm not seeing the chicken. Maybe it's like one of those optical illusion puzzles.

You are so right. Could be a room for anyone. Just beautiful.

Looks like the perfect guest room, I'm ready to move right in!

I really like this gender-neutral look, too. Probably because my bedroom is that way, too. I thought I would miss the frills when I moved in with my husband, but I really don't. Turns out I prefer a cleaner, neutral look after all!

I'm liking this a lot. Reminds me of a room tucked away in a sweet Scottish cottage.

I agree with Jamilyn...it is the perfect guest room. My favorite it the chandelier. :)

great combination, I really like how the cover goes with the cushions, opposed patterns but works so well
