I see more chaos than order. This place is a mess. There's stuff everywhere, what's up with the marker boards - that's just bad, personal perhaps, but not at all an expression of careful design. You try to be tidy - well at least in the pictures. You've laied out your space well and it looks like it's comfortable. But not worthy of comparison to some of the other entries.

Mat's heart is truely at the beach. Great use of color. Very cozy, but too much clutter for such a small space. Forget about the swinging TV idea - too many wires - unless you know something about wireless TV.

Suzi has a nice collection of things, but far too much clutter for such a small space. It feels more like an attic than a hip apartment.

Brilliant little space. The storage is what makes it all work. The best part about the storage is that it adds a level of texture and shape to the otherwise flat surfaces. Great use of white too - crisp and good contrast to the other warm tones. The space is rational, efficient, but not particularly welcoming. You should have photographed the place with different lighting, something warmer. I'm not convinced that the space is comfortable. Try a richer rug and a wooly pillow on the Bertoia.

Good use of a small space. Nice looking, clean, but not sophisticated. You need to consider colors other than white.

very sweet, very personal, but not at all glamorous. Add an area rug and a few pieces from this century - other than your computer and games.

Nice little space, but other than the art and the paint colors nothing too imaginative, all very off the rack looking, although well selected. This last set of images didn't really add to the experience of the space.

Stephanie's little slice of pie is perfect. It has a great sense of balance for such a samll space. Each area is neatly arranged creating harmonious circulation. The colors she selected are sophisticated and soothing, yet neutral. The rooms have a great variety of texture without being cluttered. The art she displays is interesting, and appears to be very well collected - not at all run of the mill. The balcony is fantastic- it appears to be very comfortable and cozy spot, a sort of hideaway within the large cityscape. Bravo.
