More of Maria Barros

Recall the breath-taking designs by Maria Barros yesterday.  I'm back today to share more.  There are just too many wonderful photos I had to share.  Loving the grey trellis wallpaper in the first photo.  And the continued use of the covering on the ceiling is brilliant (I'm all about treating the ceiling with love, more of that here).   Maria uses a lot of color with an unexpected mix of patterns (e.g., zebra with hexagons).  But I absolutely love it.  She finds the perfect balance and mix in her designs.  It's certainly not for everyone...but it's definitely right up my alley!  Also love the primary colors used in the second room.  The wallpaper's bold stripes, the crisp white sofa and dining table with pops of strong colors.  Love love love!!!

What are your thoughts about Maria Barros' style?  Could you see her design in YOUR home?  Or is it too much for you? 

Did you see the other post about Maria?  Look here.

I have seen these images a while ago but it's always fun to revisit her designs 'coz it's fabulous! The yellow geometric in the first image is absolutely stunning! Also loving the bold striped walls.

Like you said, her designs are bold and it is not for everyone but it's right up my alley. I love a visually stimulating room or else I will get bored in a minute!

Thanks for sharing, Heather and thanks for your lovely comments on my room earlier! :)

Have a good day!

Hi Heather...some parts I LOVE others not so much but overall I think her spaces are designed beautifully and I do appreciate that she pushes a little that's when the magic happens.
