I love minimalist design. And houses that don't have a lot of furniture in them are fine too. Whatever floats your boat.

"Ewww" ????

Seriously? Is an 8 year old's language the level of discourse people want to use? Most people present other choices or options pretty respectfully or maturely, but the people who don't, jeesh!

Anyway, late to the party, but I like it.

Oh thanks a lot, BarbieQ. I wondered what madness I'd found. Lol. Would have been interesting if you'd had a 1000 yr old bungalow... :)


How Much Does it Cost to Install a New HVAC System? Reader Intelligence Request

Related, slightly OT: We bought this house recently and it already had the rads removed and HVAC installed. But when I took a pic of inside the cold air return in main floor hall, I noticed that that portion does not have a metal duct, just the space between 2 floor joists. I wondered if other people have that in their HVAC.

I agree with your advice of course, but I disagree about the question. It's very interesting to know how much things tend to cost in different areas. I hope in later posts they also ask questions about things like roofing or bathroom installations etc

I'd love to buy pieces like this and refurbish them, but I'm really nervous to buy used upholstered furniture.

Yeah the old colour looked great in the pic, didn't it? I'd like that for a side table or something. But I agree you probably wouldn't want that in a bed. So good for you for taking it on, with a respirator no less. lol

This colour of metal is not usually my thing, but that is a very interesting piece. I can't imagine, with all that detail, that it's just some run of the mill, off-the-assembly-line object.

Personally, I would keep it as is. A room looks good with one object that doesn't look like it belongs there.

I did not have high hopes when I looked at the Before. Meh. But you have done a wonderful job. I love the new colour.

Agreed--that it's a good idea to think of safety and that this seems sturdier than first glance. Good for her.

Well I can imagine a lot of eye rolling at the headless mannequin. Trying too hard to be cool in this context. Ends up silly.

That said, there are some nice things and the dog steps are awesome.

Also, it would be nice to see how they were hung.

I echo the people who want to know how they made over their outdoor space. And, for the love of God, you can't show us part of those outdoor drapes and not tell us anything about them!

Love the chair. Would also love a tutorial. :)

At first I thought it was 2 different creative rooms. I'm afraid of heights so it gave me pause. I looked over all the pics and your blog post very carefully. It was endless fascinating and so creative. I would love to visit this room so much.
