I really adore this look. I'm not sure exactly why. I think this would be a great room for listening to records and just relax. The art hanging from floor to ceiling brings a lot of interest to an otherwise boring beige wall. It reminds me of a dorm room, and I think that nostalgic aspect pulls on my heartstrings a little while I look that this room!
I would even add a higher window above an original one if the ceiling was this height in the new house.... fantastic!
