Su Casa: Contemporary Meets French Country

I'm inspired by the colors and masculine-meets-feminine style in this photo that Rothchild posted in the Su Casa group. (Want to share your photos? Here's how to join Su Casa.) According to Rothchild, "I decorated this room about four years ago and I was really into French Country then. However, I am now leaning more towards contemporary design and would like to incorporate cleaner lines into my room."

I think she's well on her way with the contrast between the leather couch and the delicate green bookcases. If you've got ideas to share, leave them in the comments below.

it is the angle and the camera compresses the picture cause i agree that it looks very cramped..there is also a lot more space in front of the table facing the sofa..thanks..

is it just the angle or is that furniture way too big for that space? it looks like it would be hard to get anywhere in there? pretty colours tho.

This room really looks gorgeous. I love the wall color and I'm not a huge fan of yellow either. The stacked bookshelf idea is awesome, I wish I thought of it. The best part about the room is it looks comfy and homey and not too decorated or expensive looking to enjoy fully when company is there. Very cute.

1. Super cutie room. You've done an awesome job! 2. If you're trying to move away from French Country you can try using more contemporary light fixtures, throw pillows, and accessories. It's amazing what a few minor inexpensive adjustments can do for the overall feel of a room.

I like the yellow walls a lot.

To me, it looks like too much stuff crammed into one room. Maybe if a smaller table was used and the chair was taken out, it would free up more space.

thanks for everyone's comments and my original post, i did mention having to rearrange things such as the picture and switching the curtains during the fall and winter..:)

i think that the yellow wall and yellow curtains are lovely, but i would have to agree that different color curtains would bring more contrast. other than that i have two suggestions: 1. move the art, the picture frame that is touching the bookcase should be moved over so that there are at least two inches between them. and the art behind the end table lamp is hidden by the lamp. also, the green bottle on the bookcase is cute, but move it to the other side (below the two framed photos) so it is more visible, there is a lot of clutter in that corner. i think its a gorgeous room though, and i love the fusion of classic and contemporary. great job!

I don't think the yellow walls are that bad. I think the first thing to tackle would be the window behind the couch. Putting up a new rod and getting rid of the yellow curtains... Even if you put up some red drapes to match w/ the red accents in the room, I think that would change the look a lot.

I think the yellow "country" walls are what maybe you need to tackle. That could really give the room a whole new look.

I really REALLY like the balance between the couch and the bookshelf. The wall color is also striking, especially with the curtains. GREAT JOB! I love it! :)
