I saw this Georgian home the other day and I couldn’t help but think it would be a great space to analyze. This Georgian home is very unusual and it seems that whoever lives there has an obsession for ornamental plaster sculptures and such.

Do I like them? Yes, many of them. Do I like them all together, almost on top of each other? Well, not really. I think it’s hard to “breathe” in rooms that are so cluttered with objects, but that’s just me. Every person should put what they love in their homes, but it’s fun to get different opinions and thoughts on such peculiar places.

Take a good look at these rooms and tell me what you think? Is it Cool or Fool?

 

Details

This dining room has pieces to die for! I love many things here. But sometimes we need to know when to stop adding things to a space. Do you agree or not?

Cleaning

Maybe it’s just me, but are you wondering how many hours it would take to clean this space? I’m talking about dust!

Counting

How many of them do you think there are in this space?

Bedroom

Gosh, this is a place I wouldn’t want to be in during an earthquake.

Fireplace

I feel that the beautiful architecture of this space is almost hidden with all the plaster.

Amoire

The armoire and light fixture are beautiful, but you barely notice them.

Okay, now that you have seen the place, tell me what you really think. You don’t need to be nice, just honest! 😉

Thank you all for being here with me during this week. It’s a pleasure having you all with me. It’s always so nice to know that you’re enjoying the blog. I love reading your comments, your emails and your messages on twitter for me. Just know that I really appreciate your support!

I really hope you have a super weekend, filled with fun things to do, great places to go and accompanied by the people you love!

* “Cool or Fool” happens every Friday. I’ve started this section where I post “different” and controversial things that I know some of you will love and others will not. The point is to tell us what you really think, regardless of anything. It’s a space where you speak your mind and analyze what you see. Have fun with it and laugh along the way!

    I feel claustrophobic just looking at the pictures! I can’t breathe! Way too over-the-top for me. All I can say is edit, edit, edit! Hope you have a great weekend. xo

    I’m with Marianne couldn’t possibly live here. They are the Collyer brothers of plaster. I do, however, love the striped tablecloth with the wing chairs. Have a great weekend!

    have a wonderful weekend.

    Ick, Fool! I could never have peace of mind in a cluttered room like that. Some of the items individually are quite nice but who can tell with the sheer volume of them!
    Have a great weekend!

  7. Sheila Zeller said,

    I agree with you Luciane – things need room to breathe, and this isn’t happening here. I love the pieces by themselves or in small groupings, but this room is overwhelming. One could mistake it for a tomb!

    Have a great weekend! 🙂

    Wow, Luciane, I could never have lived there. If I had to I would start with throwing out everything on the walls. Then it probably could be very nice! I hope you have a really lovely weekend, my friend!!!!

    Love, Kristin

    Thumbs down for me. I laughed out loud at your earthquake remark. True for me, too. It is funny, also ’cause the first thing I thought of was the dust. Collections are beautiful but I like to rotate them.

  10. Mona Thompson said,

    I have never seen anything like this. It looks like a showroom rather than a home. Would love to go shopping here. I really enjoy your blog. Have a great weekend. Mona

  11. The enchanted home said,

    There is a lot of beauty here, but too much in one room. Its like a small museum, a treasure trove of beautiful things, but you don’t necessarily want to sleep in a museum right? There would be something strange and slightly unnerving about sleeping with all those eyes on the busts staring at me, I would imagine they would come to life! (Of course I am also a huge scaredy cat) Very interesting, good point about the earthquake! Yikes!!

  12. Nichole@40daysof said,

    This is definitely heading towards hoarding status.

  13. Timothy said,

    It would look really cool redesigned as a garden room with a little greenhouse maybe and lots of planters and pots and skylights, windows, and French doors

  14. designchic said,

    Waaaay to much stuff…need calm and serene in my bedroom, but I could find some great items for my own room here. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  15. Kathy said,

    totally concour with you my dear…you find the most interesting places to blog about…your efforts are so appreciated..my form of entertainment..thanks, have a great weekend

    *** O… M… G…!!!! ***

    Annnnnd, just FORGET about “the neighbors”, Luciane~~~ it’s my HOUSEKEEPER I’d worry about!!! She’s been with us since we moved here, & she’s loyal to a fault. Buuut, after seeing THIS? And EXPECTING her to take CARE of it all???? Well, all I can say is the expression on her face would PROBABLY be something like JACK NICHOLSON’S in THE SHINING!!! (Scary!)…. (Grins!)…

    Best to you, m’ friend!

    I feel a little stressed looking at that room, like being in a big, nonmoving crowd. Kind of looks like an antique shop, which also make me kind of jittery…too much to process. Interesting post! Hope you ate feeling well…xo

    Way too much clutter for me, but I so love the thought of having a much smaller space well appointed and interesting niches. This space has potential! Take all the nick nacks out though!

    Luciane,
    I love this!!! I love to be surrounded by all these plaster sculptures! I wish I could have a study room as this ! I am sure that the surroundings would inspire me working at my projects!!
    Love that living room and also the table and gorgeous seats! The bedroom is wonderful to look at but I wouldn’t like to sleep surrounded by the sculptures giving me nightmare sometimes!
    Wonderful photography here!
    Wish you a wonderful weekend!
    xx

    I agree with Greet. These rooms are fabulous. The collector — and I do mean collector — who lives here certainly has an artist’s eye and a particular point of view. The rooms are perfect for photo shoots, however, I could not live in them because they are overwhelming and very, very, very difficult to keep clean.
    Thank you for yet another fascinating post and have a wonderful weekend, Luciane.

  21. Mandi Smith T said,

    OK, I am usually fascinated by these, but this one was more than I could take. All that stuff makes me twitch. I am confident I could never live in that space!! Love these, please keep them coming. Mandi.

  22. Tamara said,

    Where is this? It looks like the John Soane House museum in London.

  23. Monique said,

    Agree with Nichole — hoarding status? Or does Mortician from the Adams family live here?

  24. Oh, Monique! If you think that Mortician lives here, wait until you see my next Cool or Fool next week! 🙂

    Enjoy your weekend!

    I wouldn’t want to live there but I sure would love to do a little shopping!!! Hi Luciane, miss you! Hope you are well! xo Sherri

  26. Splendid Sass said,

    Too much in each room, bit I think it is cool. Would love to have some of these pieces!
    Have anice Sunday, Luciane!

  27. Barbara@HausDesign said,

    It’s just too much for me. I would probably love many of these elements in a small grouping or on their own, but I can’t even rest my eyes it’s so overwhelming. I couldn’t do it but would love to take a few pieces home with me. 🙂

  28. Karen T. said,

    If toned down, these rooms could be beautiful. I’d love to shop there!

    it looks like a good picture for an I spy book!
