This is so beyond beautiful. NOLA is one of my favorite places, and this is exactly the type of home I envision when imagining a fantasy life there.

We currently have laminate that looks like woodgrain in the 1958 house we just bought- I actually really like it! Not sure why laminate is hated so fiercely. Some granite looks nice, just not that super busy stuff that everyone on HGTV seems to go nuts over.

looks very 'goth teenager' to me... not necessarily a bad thing (for me), but probably not what they were going for?

Love seeing Houston on here! lovely heights home. I chuckled with the 'no zoning can create a unique neighborhood' comment... I am newer to Houston and it took me so long to get used to the whole no zoning thing. But, I now really do love the hodge podge fun of a no zone city.

I seem to be in the minority here, as I absolutely love the green bean casserole. Oddly, before he met me - my husband had never heard of it. I have pointed out that grocery stores create endcaps with the ingredients all together... how could he have gone that long without knowing of its exsistence? My family also has something called 'pookie' which is some strange mess of cranberries, whip cream, peacans, and marshmellows. I hate it, but everyone else loves it.

I love everything about the kitchen in the last picture. And the pink fridge. But, I am a sucker for 1950's colors...

It truly is the only thing we could find to store our vast collection of vinyl. It's like it was made for that exact purpose.

oh geez. I never leave negative comments, but... this is just. awful. Although, I clicked on the link and do really like the bouquet... has sort of a Jetsons vibe.
