We love the film Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and we love this dining room, too! The vibrancy of the colours and the individuality of interpretation are very eye catching – do you agree?
- The yellow mirror frames and the red chair frames would normally be a match made at McDonalds, but here they work in tandem to give a fresh, bright tone to the room.
- The delightful pendant light pulls the disparate elements in the room together, and anchors the theme.
- The heaviness of the table is off-set by the crispness of the chairs, and we appreciate that the chair fabric is not ethnic in reference, as that would have been overkill.
- The elephant art could have tipped the room over into kitsch, but the careful balance of the flowers on the console and the lightness of the dining setting keep it all in the realms of good taste.
So what do you think – love it or hate it? Tastefully different or over the top? A tribute to India or a testimony to trashy? We’d love to hear from you!
