Love it of Leave it | Patterned Bedrooms

I have long been a fan of Interior Designer Mary McDonald. I admire that she takes risks and is bold in her work and, as a result, the interiors that she creates are absolutely stunning.  In this particular room, she breaks all the conventional rules of bedroom design by creating a space with bold red on red color and pattern on pattern.
We read it, hear it and see it all the time – a bedroom should be a soothing sanctuary. Calm colors, muted patterns. Restful. This room is the absolute opposite.

Red is an energetic color. Green is also used in the room and is opposite of red on the color wheel, making it a complimentary color. Using complimentary colors together traditionally creates even more energy in a room.
Then we have pattern on pattern with bold stripes and the geometric wallpaper. These features combined, make for a high energy, but still aesthetically pleasing room.
All the rules have been broken in this bedroom, but I want to know what you think. Do you love it or leave? Could you and would you sleep in this room?
