which one are you?

this is a tough one this week..i am slightly obsessed with both of these lovely ladies living rooms.
both feminine with impeccable taste and details that make my head spin..
top 2 images are Jessie Randall's (of Loeffler Randall..sigh) living room is a clean feminine, modern and SO new york apartment..clean lines, but still very comfortable at the same time..i love how she mixes lacquer, wood, metallic wallpaper and lipstick pink to come up with a perfect refreshing space.

2nd living room is rita konigs..which has a bunch more 'stuff' but stuff isn't the right word, when most of her 'stuff' is on my dream wish list..nonetheless..she has more personality in the room, more refurbished furniture..but could be too cluttered for your taste..its got a bit of british which makes me swoon as well

so which one are you?

Love both, but I vote for Rita! Something about the soft pink pillows and green chairs, and a giant mess'o'peonies surely doesn't hurt!

I must say that everything about the 1st living room appeals to me --- I really like Rita's too....but to live in ---I'd pick the first. xo elizabeth

I'm the first room, but part of me really really wants a space like Rita's! xx

Love both - but the 1st one I just want to climb into the photo and curl up!

A little of both. I could never go either direction completely. Love them both.

ooh I'm tickled that you ended up turning this into a feature. I love both very much indeed. I think Jessie's is gorgeous. I have more 'trinkets' -shall we call them- like Rita, but I love the clean space and laqured parson's desk in the top. x Tie!

thats a hard one.. i like, no love, both. I'd like to be the first one but I'm much more cluttery and "stuff"y. And I've also adored Rita's home! x

The 1st one for sure...but the 2nd has so many things I'd like as well...
tough call...

The first room is by far one of my all time favourites! I have coveted this room since the first time I saw it in Domino. It is feminine with a contemporary edge. To die for!!!

although i love them both I must say I am the first.

I am so the second one, but I would edit a bit. I love it, but there is just a touch too much stuff.
