Room by Book//Red Queen

Red Queen is set in a futuristic world that makes the reader feel totally foreign, but in reality is supposedly our future. The furniture shown here is both modern and a revival of more traditional forms of art-- how I imagine the Silver palace. The fox and the coffee table both have silver accents meant to be nod at the Silver culture in this book and are quite modern. Yet the ottoman and wallpaper both feel like they belong in the 1920s with the ottoman having bobbin legs which were the rage in the Victorian times, but the ottoman has a very clean cushion. I liked the darker theme of the wallpaper hinting at how controlling the Silvers are of Reds. The fox was supposed to be representative of Cal and how he is always changing with the reader never knowing what sly side of him will come next. The coffee table I imagine can also be spread with war maps and everything a prince needs. Overall I just wanted this furniture to exude coldness and detachedness of Silvers. Also my review of Red Queen is coming out soon.
