Is it a good or bad thing that I did not even notice the Obama Hope poster until the comments here made me go back and have another look?

Anyhoo, I love the house. So white and bright and yet it's not stark but warm and full of personal touches. It looks like a family home and not a museum.

Love the French doors, love the living room, would kill for that dining nook.

I love this one. Every bit of it is perfect. I'm voting it for the grand prize. Good luck Juan Pedro.

@Lindley... perhaps, like me, people DID read the owner's remarks and were puzzled as to why, on the one hand she bemoans the lack of a dining room, whereas on the other she uses a space that could serve that purpose, ostensibly to house a dresser. And in doing so, she is blocking half a window. In one of the photos of the bedroom you can see that there is a dresser, albeit a less attractive one.

Michael, I hope that AT are considering you for a staff writer position. You're hilarious. And you place is awesome.

2bigbike, I have to admire your resolve and it's obviously working for you, but if I couldn't allow myself a few decent cafe lattes during the working week, I'd wonder what I was working so hard for.

Having said that though, yours are good habits to get into if you want to minimise debt, and if I'd done adopted them when I started working I could now afford some nice cake to go with my lattes.

To the writer of the piece... How can something be 3 times smaller? Do you mean to say "1/3rd the size"? Or is this the new mathematics?

The orientation of the rooms in the photos does not match that in the floor plan. Are we looking at a negative (reverse) of the floor plan?

@LovelyMissKatie, I'm normally cautious about strong colours but I love the way you've done yours. I'm also loving the rugs, the office chair, the hardwood floors, the artwork and, of course, your furbabies.

Not a trend that I'll be following. In a bedroom or living room maybe - but dining room? Nope.

Agree. I was waiting to see her balcony and we saw none. Very puzzling.

I saw the RASKOG cart in an IKEA catalogue but convinced myself I didn't need it. I've since seen one in a little retro cafe and it looks just as good "in real life" as in the photos. It's definitely on the shopping list now.

Love the wall. But those luggage stands look like they belong outside.

I'm with you Basil&Bones and jengirldc. As long as the person doing the correcting is not being a total wanker or smartarse, I'm OK with having my grammatical or spelling errors corrected.

Back to the topic of cleaning baseboards - I usually use the soft brush on my vaccuum cleaner to dust them, then a wet soapy cloth to clean any marks. Thanks AT for providing some alternative methods.
