My favorite so far, although I agree that the lack of kitchen/bath photos was disappointing. Beautiful, beautiful space.

Mello1 - It's a matter of taste. What a rude and unnecessary comment.

Well I think it's a clever idea for a series. The picture shown above is probably the least impressive/interesting; the Nineteen on a Bike is cute.

I have to agree on the pricing, though. Pretty steep. She should sell prints for $10 and give the originals to the record-breakers themselves.

A medium grey-brown would look lovely with white wainscoting. It would also complement the colors you chose for the rest of your home.

The walls look more like tufted space blankets than tinfoil. How would one tuft tinfoil, anyway.

I'm not understanding the foil covered chair and couch/bed thing, but the walls are wonderful.

Wow, this looks fantastic. The naked/basket/wire lampshade bandwagon is one I could definitely jump on.

This is the Dells one. I went in it years ago when it was brand new, and it started out as all of the rooms being literal upside down rooms of the whitehouse, one of which contained a robotic Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinksy hanging from a desk on the ceiling. Then all of the rooms were magically right-side up and we were hunting aliens. And there was one of those spinning tunnels.

Waste of interesting architecture?

The one on the island is adorable. Although slightly terrifying if there were an emergency.

mkay42484, I've painted many a wood-paneled wall, and it's easier than you'd think. As long as you use primer, no sanding is required, and painted paneling looks great. Especially in white.

Is that a microwave? Why?

The cabinet is cute. I agree that the pink should be a pale grey. Put some bronze hardware in on in place of the black. It's adorable; I'm jealous.

Well I think it turned out great. Not the most clever thing I've seen on here, but it's a great idea.

The bird was probably photo shopped onto the wall for aesthetic purposes if this is from a magazine. Or not.

The first thing that came to mind (and I see others have had the same thought already) is to shorten those back pillows! They're 98% of the grandma problem. If you're willing to reupholster, than any fabric will look beautiful on these chairs. They're darling!

Wehehellll I think it's as clever as can be. I could live in it. Yes I could. I think it should be on a support system, though (hamster wheel style). And the bathroom could also be round and attached, but stationary so as to eliminate spillage and make showering actually possible

This reminds me of my mother's decorating style in the 90's, except it's white instead of forest green, so slightly more tasteful. I agree with the skip-the-wallpaper-go-with-paint suggestions.

No, thebradseed, I'm with you. I've never seen a reupholstered Eames Lounger (with a printed fabric, at least) that wasn't wretched.

I think Juliet is from Miami, right? First thought when I saw this scene was that they were up to something, but I can buy that the house is 80s. It's the clothing that is way, way off.
