Around age 8 I used to live near a Montana hotel a la "The Shining" so that one rings true. I had read the book before seeing the movie and I pictured that hotel as the setting--CHILLS! Not only were the interiors eerie in the movie, they were also quite similar to the hotel I knew, making it doubly creepy. The ballroom (pre-blood flood!) in particular struck home with me, as did the seemingly endless hallways. I love suspenseful fright films (as opposed to gore) and "The Shining" even beats "Psycho" by just thaaat much!

Looks inviting, neat, and full of life and creativity. I've been wondering how to get shelves in my kitchen which is tiled with slate--the college room solution is a great one! On my way to a dump site where I know there's cinder block now; then off to Lowe's for some boards. Personality really shines through here; I already like the owners!

Not the least bit inviting, IMHO.

Enough of the family homes, AT, please! I joined because I thought this renter had found a style-hacker home; now I'm seeing gigantico homes designed by perfect decorators and oh, yeah--by Time-effin'-Warner?! REALLY?!

I join the chorus of naysayers to AT featuring this. Just as I joined AT began featuring family homes (there's PLENTY of those on other sites) and now this. Get back to the apartment thing that real people do, Mr./Ms. Therapy, please?!

Definitely a fan of the "before," personally.
