The Cool or Fool of this week is all about love OR hate and nothing in between. I saw this bedroom the other day from a listing of a house in Beverly Hills. The house itself is very trendy and even has an interesting family room designed by interior designer Michael Taylor. I was loving the house, until I got to this picture. I took a long look at this bedroom and I wondered how far should we go when designing our rooms. We all agree that we should decorate our homes however makes us happy but when you’re in this business you end up seeing many, many rooms that have great potential but instead of looking fabulous, they become victims of the trends and end up looking totally overdecorated.
Looking at this room, you’ll see many great elements, including the beautiful architecture of the room itself. But you’ll also see the yellow tufted walls, the same fabric used on the chaises are also used on the bed board and pillows. Too much? Well, you take a look and tell me know if this master bedroom looks Cool or Fool.
I hope you guys have a brilliant weekend. Enjoy your Halloween, eat some candy and have lots of fun! Fun, fun, fun!!!

* “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!

Ging ot have to go with fool, Luciane. Way too much going on.
How are your doing? Not much longer now, although I remember it feeling like an eternity. Then you turn around and they are grown.
Have a wonderful weekend.
I don’t even want to know why this person needs padded walls 🙂 I agree that it’s a fool. The ceiling alone is so fantastic. I would try to draw attention to that, not away from it with everything else going on in there. I think just losing the walls and the window treatments would make a huge improvement.
Have a great weekend, Luciane!!
Thanks for visiting my blog and how fun to find you! Cheers, Kate
oh wow! no words. All I can say is if you lived in theis bedroom you wouldnt need caffeine to wake you up-the colors would do it for you.
Have a great weekend!
The curtains alone are so overdone and ridiculous. Just imagine all the good that could’ve been done for needy people with the money spent on this room. Kinda makes me angry when I see all this wretched excess.
Wow, I can’t believe I am willing to say I actually like the room. The color combos are a bit too much but there are some really nice pieces. The bedside tables and credenza are great as well as the lamps and chandelier. If only the main color wasn’t yellow.
Way too much for me! The whole wall looks like it is a headboard!
I haven’t had any coffee at all during pregnancy! Only hot chocolate 🙂 You are almost there, how exciting!…I have been feeling really good, thanks so much for asking!
Have a great weekend!!
Not my style, but to each their own. I’m adding you to my blogroll right now. XOXO. Have a great weekend.
FOOL for me, huge room just overdone, I don’t know where to look first!!!!! The upholstered walls, the colors, the patterns, its just too much. I see soft ivories and calming blues in there, and then it would be spectacular because the room itself is a great and grand room, just needs a really good makeover!
Feel great Lucianne, cannot believe you are down to 4 weeks!!! SO EXCITING…cannot wait to hear the big news, feel well sweetie!
I’m going to have to go with fool too. For starters, the decor doesn’t jive with the architecture. That ceiling screams “mid century modern” or California contemporary. And the decor is a mix of everything BUT items that suit it. There are some great pieces and ideas here, but the sum of the parts is much less than the whole.
I hate it. So I guess that’s ‘Fool’. What happened to light and airy? The ceiling and the light in this space are calling for more of the same. I’m always curious with bedrooms that are so full of unrest like this one, about how the occupier sleeps at night. Do they really ‘rest’… what’s really going on?
I hope you have a restful weekend Luciane, and that little Matthew sleeps with you… not too many braxton hicks:-)
Achei que a linda arquitetura fica foscada em tantos detalhes… fiquei imaginando uma decoração mais natural, com este teto branco maravilhoso.
Esta semana foi meio corrida,mas agora vou dar uma espiada pelas postagens.
Lindo findi pra vc com sua família
bjus pro baby
Too decorated for me…so glad that design is moving in a simpler, cleaner direction. XO, Mona
Fool – not only do I not do windows, I also don’t vacuum walls.
And don’t you just know they’ve got dogs? Ick.
OK Lucianne, I have to be honest. That picture makes my eyes hurt! M.
I love yellow but not on fabric on walls???? I think of having to dust them…too much, but gotta say I love that chaise huh?
yiy- I agree with Amanda “No words”
and that’s saying something for me!
and I see “Sheila” isn’t one to mince words; “I hate it” lol!
Enjoy these last few weeks
Who could relax, no less sleep, in a room like this? It reminds me of a scene from Mel Brooks’ High Anxiety. In it, Madeline Kahn, dressed in a hound’s tooth suit, was getting into her car with a hound’s tooth roof and hound’s tooth upholstery. It was meant to be funny, if you know what I mean.
Be well, Luciane and know there is a whole group of readers who are sending positive thoughts to you.
You really made me laugh with your comment! That’s the main purpose of “Cool or Fool”. We can have some fun with it. 🙂
I always enjoy your comments. I read all of them and the support I get from you and all the other readers are so important and appreciated, more than you can imagine. Thank you so much for everything!
Enjoy your weekend!

I just don’t like the tufted wall & drapes. The rest, I like it a lot!
I hope you’re well. 4 more weeks!! So happy for you. I’ll be going to Sao Paulo in Nov. to meet my nephew and spend time with my sis. I’m willing to help her with the baby, but… I need to learn a lot to do that.
Have a lovely weekend.
I’d have to say fool, too. BUT, I don’t think you’d have to remove a whole lot to make it into a cool room. I could deal with the yellow tufted fabric if it was only on one wall, but it’s going all the way around. And that window treatment is so over-the-top. I’d get a headache if I stayed in that room too long.
Yuck, not relaxing, not beautiful, not unified! Love the ceiling, kill the walls and I don’t care for any of the fabrics! Have a great weekend! Hope you are feeling well.
Oh I’d say its cool to experience sleeping in there…
but I honestly can not stay there for more than a couple of months.
Love the yellow color though.
Too much, too much…definitely fool! I have the willies now…and feel a bit unwell. I do like the ceiling very much though, and it looks like it has a nice balcony, but that’s it…poor room.
Hope you are feeling well…
The first thing I thought was-what a great way to sound proof a room with those yellow tufted walls. I like the chandelier. I don’t think yellow is a good
color for me so I’m biased. I wouldn’t have it. I really don’t like the bedspread. Black and white means a gender change. I have to have pastels and frou-frou in my bedroom. God bless you as you approach the birth of your baby. I’m looking forward to hearing all about your new little one.
I have to say fool! I think it was the tufted wall that killed it. It could of been charming with the black and white and yellow.
Fool!! It’s like the decorator started at one end and just starting adding “stuff”.
The yellow walls and curtains are a bit too much for me. No way I could sleep there 😉
