A monochrome nursery with no pops of color? That feels very sad to me.

I get that people want to design the living bajeezus out of every square inch of their house, but ...

I spent $350 for an artist's proof of a wildlife print. 20 years later it's worth close to $3,000.

My eyes are bleeding from this font. Please make it stop so I can see the sofas. I need a small sofa.

This is UH-MAZE-ING. The stark impersonal box that's the bones of this unit is the *perfect* backdrop for all these things! The art and fans on top of the kitchen cabinets is genius!

Yeah, that's pretty much my idea of heaven with the addition of color. No clutter, no worshiping at the Altar of Stuff.

I had a home birth in a row house. My neighbors were given a heads up - and as I was F-Bombing my way through precipitous labor my Mom made the rounds assuring them that no one was being harmed ;-)

Me too kayonyc! I've been working toward submitting a house tour but I fear my aversion to nick nacks will lead to too many "looks unfinished, needs more styling" comments.

We have two adults, a teenager, an 85 pound Golden, and I track in all sorts of mud and hair from the barn - in a 1000sf house. Dusting is bad enough without stuff to move around!

Pretty much exactly my taste if I were single, petless and childless!

BUT... I don't see why you'd make a formal dining room into a sitting/guest room that's immediately adjacent to a living room. Perhaps they don't eat or invite their friends over to eat? I'd probably opt for a nice airbed to bring in for overnight guests.

This makes me sad. That doesn't mean that it's not without merit - it's just a sad state of affairs that your kids need an electronic leash with a GPS signal.

I'm PRO under-bed storage and ANTI pot rack. I don't like anything that adds to visual clutter. Better to go with fancy cabinet organizers and put the stuff away!
