i love this space and can’t believe how overwhelmingly negative all of these short sighted comments are. if this is somehow an attempt at analytical criticism you are falling well short and should just give it a pass next time. if you don’t like being criticized you should realize that these stupid comments are nothing more than slinging mud – get over yourselves and piss off wankers.
No one should feel obligated to leave a positive comment about every room, but just saying something is ugly or ridiculous isn’t constructive and demonstrates no real analysis of the design.
While I’m a big fan of color, I prefer more subtle shades, like in the Orla Kiely print. Some of these colors are a little too saturated for my taste, and I find them a little jarring, but I can see how the rooms might be fun for a young family with children.
There loads of fun, joyful elements in this space, which singularly appeal to me. It is overdone but that’s ok. It’s the completeness that doesn’t resonate with me, the rooms, colours, fittings are so decided, I think I prefer a space that can evolve over time, change quickly and absorb new elements easily!
While I might not make some of the same choices in my own design, I agree that the freedom of expression in these spaces is very refreshing! A question for the designer – the play and sleep structures for the children are wonderful but look quite permanent and in turn, oddly restrictive in terms of flexibility for future use. The kids will outgrow these in a few years – is there a plan for transitioning as the kids get older, or will there have to be a hefty remodel project?
