could you?

Kelly Wearstler designed, yes. But could you live with such a graphic design?

Sarah I did a post called, Have we gone too far? I used this as an image. In this case I say Yes we have gone too far!!! Not a fan of this but I am a fan of Kelly's total out of the box design, it is not that I always like it but I can appreciate it in most cases, but not in this one. here is the post I wrote. I have a couple of other images that are questionable too.

Blue Fruit said...

Oh yes, quite happily. The colour is soft, even the design is bold ~ a clever contrast.

Rona said...

Nope, too much for me

David Toms said...

The zebra skin yes, the walls I would have to think about!

Raina Cox said...

In a heartbeat.

But the cow-in-drag rug would have to go. I'm still terribly disappointed in La Wearstler for using a zebra-stenciled cowhide rather than the real thing.

In a word "NO"

travelkate said...

I can appreciate this room for it's creativity, but I definitely couldn't live in it myself!

things that sparkle said...

I could do it in a bathroom maybe, but to have to look at this every time i walked in the house? Dont think so

Appletree said...

I could today, but in 2 years, I would have changed my mind. Avant gard is only for the rich who can afford to change it on a whim.

Kate Lewis said...

love kelly wearstler but, uh, negatory. could not live with this, but sure do appreciate it. :)

Amanda said...

I really love it...I saw someone do their own version of this with paint vs the wallpaper and they did a smashing job! And it was cheap...not sure I could do it myself I doubt my art skills :)

About Last Weekend said...

Think all her stuff is like this. Totally mesmerising and great in magazine photos but many many bits and bobs in the same space. Always love her couches but then she adds those enormous crystals jobbies. However I'm glad she's around because we do need that theatricality!

First House on the Right said...

Far too much. Don't like it AT ALL! I love, love, love most of what Kelly Wearstler does but sadly this goes over the line for me :( Nicolex

Laura Trevey said...

one word: Wow!!

Carissa @ the Fabulous Design File said...

Um... NO. This would drive me crazy. It reminds me too much of the types of things the kids draw on my walls.

Cassie {Hi Sugarplum!} said...

I think I really could...the question is...what do the surrounding rooms look like?

Sarah at Finishing Touch Interiors said...

I love Kellys work but this is a touch OTT for me personally

kayce hughes said...

no

my favorite and my best- MFAMB to you said...

yes!!! and given the fact that i believe it's a hallway/entrance/pass-thru kind of a room it would be easier to live with bc you would only ever have to walk thru it...not sit in it. not sleep in it. not eat in it. not poop in it...etc..

Yer Cinnamon Girl said...

I don't like the zebra skin but yes I could love it even though it is not my style.

Meredith said...

I could absolutely do something like this. So much so that this paper has inspired a project that I will hopefully be able to share with you sooner rather than later. It totally grew on me though. The first time I saw it I thought she'd fallen and hit her head on a rock.

Love Design Company said...

I appreciate Kelly Wearstler but sometimes I think some of it is done just to be outlandish. Once a designer travels that road I feel like they are trying too hard to be original. Don't get me wrong, I like most of her stuff but this is too much especially for a residential space. Nightclub? maybe...
