No. People. No.

No screen divider to ruin that beautiful flow.

And the whole place is private. I would live there in a heart beat, if I didn't have these kids. In which case, yes, I would need more privacy.

Lovely. Despite its small size and multi purpose functionality, it feel sophisticated and grown up. Poetic almost.

I thought about the great architecture when I cast my vote, but then I looked at what she did with the space. The balance of natural wood and modern. The way the oblong rectangle is repeated throughout, from the exterior or the building to the windows, to the red tile in the bathroom to the shape of the sofa to the lampshade. Well done.

I do this! It's one of my favorite warm weather dishes. A can of tomatoes, chilpotle in adobo, cumin, oregano, garlic, onions, salt and pepper. Yum. Then serve with guac and lime pico de gallo. YUM. And pretty easy.

I rarely post here and am even more rarely negative, but OMG, you people are whiners!

Yes, it's good for people to be thoughtful of their neighbors, but you all seem to expect them to be invisible and completely silent. And THAT is not thoughtful of your neighbors.

I've never heard anybody who expected kids to stay silent in their own yards. They're not allowed to play in their yard but have to go to the park?

You should check to make sure it's not you who is the bad neighbor.

I tried this, using the NYT recipe after googling it, and although it was doubtful, it turned out fine. I think my coffee was old, though. I wonder how this would work with finer ground espresso type coffee... maybe I should try it.

I'm sure if I had the opportunity to stay there it would be lovely, but somehow it feels a little bland to me. I want more. Maybe a couch would help, but I think mainly it felt slightly impersonal.

I have a fondness for BM Tropical Dusk and the lighter Spring Violet. They are much more muted than your stereotypical lavender, found in the gray section of the store. I have Spring Violet in my kids room, with turquoise, navy and white and it's a lovely soothing room. And we have Tropical dusk in the livingroom which doesn't get much light, and it is warm and cozy and great for movie watching. I like intense colors though not bright ones.

So sweet.

I like the simplicity perked up with natural flair. And I like the use of style rather than trend. Love the workspace.

I want to live like that, but sub out the dogs for two toddlers.

I love the lost and found treasure of it all. It's like walking through someone's subconscious. I would love to read their blog. I also like how much diy they did.

I'm tempted to say the Dutch Oven, so I can learn to make roasts and other standards, but I think I'll say the grill pan. I'd like to make some mortally peppered steak au poivre with mustard sauce.

Love the amoebic shape the first arrangement makes. And the asymmetry of the second. I like the eclectic collection of frames, also. You'd think it would be chaotic, but the unifying black and white (or beige) makes it work.

The pop of red or blue offers such a spark. Inspiration worthy.

I once had a bedroom/study that was red. It was cranapple. That was the name, that was the color. I think it was behr.

I loved it as the color of my office, where I spent a lot of time writing. It's a very stimulating color. It was a horror to sleep in, though. And it tinted everything in the room red.

Come to think of it, I also used to paint in that room, so I suppose it was also my studio. I painted a lot of red paintings at that time.

So I think red is great for a writing study or a studio if you are not interested in working with color-- or you're interested in working with having a red period, ala Picasso's blue period, but I think it's too strong for a full use studio.

I often find black and white color schemes to be cold and severe. This is neither. It's warm and inviting. Not quite sure how you managed it. Love the patterns and textures and that nothing seems matchy matchy, although the palette is so limited.

I totally agree about black and white being colors. Neutrals are colors. Brights are colors. Jewel tones are colors. Pastels are colors. All of these are simply different types of colors and they are all around us constantly. What I'm looking for in this contest is the entrants sophisticated and surprising uses of whatever colors they chose.

Love the art and the colors in the art. It would be great to see you pull more of those colors into your decorating. Keep it up.

Hey, Jenny D.

I don't speak Italian, but I managed to figure out that she likes to use a spectrum of color but has a predilection for orange and magenta. And she is influenced by Mexican, Morrocan, East Indian, Eastern European and Southern Italian styles.

Way to be a citizen of the world.

So unexpected and not what I would choose at all, but just lovely. It has just a tinge of the seventies, but with such taste and panache. Well done.

It's obvious to me that you guys have good color sense, but it looks as if you are still at the beginning of your experimentation with color. That living room color that you say you aren't really happy with could probably have been a lot darker and would have had a better effect. Perhaps like one of those blue books in that great bookshelf.

I do however, love that teal in your bedroom. What color is it?
