One Room, Two Ways

Ugh, I can't decide which room I like better and, as you've probably noticed, I really dislike the feeling of ambivalence. 

The vintage suitcases and mannequin are perfection in the first shot, but I really like the pop of pink and the sweet sea foam dresser in the second.  This is definitely a great example of what a little styling can do to really define a space.  Do you prefer one over the other?

I would have to cast my vote for white...it is always so peaceful looking to me and just conveys a fluffy, restful sleep :)

The first white room.

But with that solid pink bedspread

I'd take the pink duvet and move it to the white. I love the suitcases as bedside table. Brilliant!

difficult decision indeed, i love the pink accents!

Nessa said...

I love the second room - I can imagine it in a east coast home with the small town and ocean nearby. Love that dresser...

say.la vie said...

I like the white room though would love to add that fantastic dresser to it!

Nessa said...

OOHH the heels on the table - just saw them and love it.

Maggie Rose said...

I like the furniture in the second, but the bedding in the first!

voting for the 2nd. I love the mix of color and the idea of using the bike basket for flowers is just perfect!

I don't usually even like pink, but I'm LOVING the second room. It seems more alive, though not overbearing. They are both gorgeous, however!

TERI REES WANG said...

You can easily have both.

I see the same room twice, switched up seasonally to meet our mood.

Cheers!..to having it all.

I like the second one better! The pink is really beautiful!!

Thanks for the comment too! *hugs*

Trisha said...

Definitely the one with the bike in it. :) Pretty pictures! I think I'd sleep well in either room.

Liz said...

I love both for what they each bring to the room, a natural lightness from the white room and a fresh and sweet pop from second room.

Great taste.

drollgirl said...

dang it! you are making me think.

at first glance, #1 all the way. but then again it might be a little tiny bit drab. but #2 is too much pink for me. OR IS IT? HAHAHAHHAHAH

...love Maegan said...

The first one, definitely. Also suits man & woman ...not just a girl. And, I love it. :)

Katie said...

How about #1 with the sea foam dresser?

Karena said...

I would do the 1st and then add smaller shots of color in art & accessories.

oh I'm so much coveting pink lately that I would surely choose the second one... if... I hadn't to share my bedroom with the huz... ha! xo

tape_queen said...

I am in favor of the white room! I feel like it would be much easier to add to a white room than to a room that already has a strong pink personality. I also prefer the clean and calming soft whites in the first. :)

Sam said...

Gee - that's a tough call! They are both lovely in their own way. Can't I have both? :0)

Tamstyles said...

ohhh me likey both of these.

Claire Kiefer said...

I like the second one. I think it's cheerier. I also get so confused by how people manage to have white rooms and not ruin them with coffee/wine/ink stains from writing in bed at night/etc. What's the secret?? I can't even wear a white dress. :|

Callie Grayson said...

serene and cosy!

Gina said...

Love the second one. I want to paint my dresser that color....

Heather K said...

I love the second room. The splash of bright pink is fabulous. The dresser is just the right hight and the color is so great. Everything gets lost in the sea of white in the first one.

 Viv said...

The first for me. I want to starfish dive onto that bed and never leave that room.

Tonia {Chic Modern Vintage} said...

I like the second one best.

Moosette said...

I love white rooms - feel so relaxed and simple - but I do really love the pop of color with pink and the unexpected teal dresser... ahhhhh - I didnt help much!

Iva said...

I love love love pink. HOWEVER there just is something so strong about #1. I love it!!

Bromeliad said...

Wow. Great comparison. I would have to go for the first one for sure.

abigail's treasure said...

the top one definitely, beautiful.

beauty comma said...

i've actually prepared a post with the first bedroom in it, but the second one is really cute, too...

Melissa Allam said...

Definately the pink brightens it up a bit.

Alexis said...

I love the first room but, if I could combine, I'd put the suitcases under the typewriter and add in the side table of the pink room. :)
