OTT?

Well, wallpapering the ceiling is a little over the top, but honestly the thing I don't like about this room are the columns, which seem a little cheap-n-cheesy. Otherwise, this place has two things I love — blue and white, and natural, unpretentious wood. That giant mirror lightens things up a bit. It's borderline, I know, but strip down those columns and I quite like it.

I agree - the columns do seem a bit out of place - otherwise I like!

It's like Swedish colonial. Weird.

It's hard to say, but I suspect the columns might be original, and possibly structural... otherwise I kind of love it, though. I see what you mean.

There's something about the way the columns line up with the ceiling and the floor that suggests they aren't original to the house. I could be wrong, of course, but they give me scary McMansion flashes.
