This house is too big. There are two dining tables withing 8 feet of each other. Totally superfluous.

The white-washing is lovely and the nail-head trim on the chairs is a nice way to add sparkle without being overly precious.

Its pretty. It will be interesting to see how it holds up. AT do you have a mechanism to keep track of such things?

I love Rick Steves. He's a local boy, too. He is very opinionated but he's never steered me wrong. The only downside is that you might run into 3 other American couples carrying their Rick Steves books in the recommended guesthouse in a sleepy German town that was supposed to be off the beaten track.

Nicely done. (And nicely explained.)

I can confirm that adults do hit harder than kids. Many of the mini bottles didn't make it. Thankfully they were plastic. And cheap.

Thanks for sharing the blue color that you used. It works so well with the red of the exposed brick.

Thanks for the bike post! We are thinking about becoming a one-car-two-bike family if we can figure out a good way to transport our toddler.

If this was my kitchen, I would repaint the cabinets Dove White (Benjamin Moore) and get brushed silver hardware for the cabinets. I would paint the walls a brighter color like Sea Star. I would live with the counters and appliances as-is for a while before making any major decisions.

I can't tell how old the appliances are but they don't strike me as being particularly ancient. Maybe it's because they're white?

Our best decisions:

Ikea Cabinets with pull-outs
Over-the-range Microwave

Our worst decisions:

Buying appliances from Sears. Worst customer service experience ever. EVER!

I also wish we'd collected all our materials on-site before we actually got started.

Nicely done! The wood paneling and older fixtures could have been dark and dreary but the colors, natural textures and fun details are soothing and welcoming. Those greens! I'm going to file pictures away into my inspiration file.

I love the color choices but I'm dissapointed by the adherence to current trends. (Unless the recent popularity of that darned Greek Key motif all started with Ms. Steponkus.)

In fact, I'm pretty sure that cat was photo shopped onto that thing. The shadows aren't right.

FAIL. Sorry, but it does not look nearly soft enough to be a cat bed. Unless all your other furniture is hard plastic, I can't see why a cat would choose this over a bed, couch or area rug.

I can't get over the blue ceiling! It's beautiful. Especially with the minimal silver light fixture.

Totally saving this picture.
