I dunno, I'm not feeling these rugs. Seems like they would have something more interesting inside.

Pretty boring and generic overall but the second one is the worst. That tall table in the middle of those rugs! Ugh! The other two look like something out of a Pottery Barn catalog from a few years ago.

I bought something like that at Target and it works great too.

I thought the 3rd one was being sold on target.com for under $40 or it was a while ago. Love the look.

My friends parents had this in their dining room and they sanded it and stained it. There are all different color stains out there that might look very cool on this.

Doc Hammer and Jackson Publik's design sense so great. I love the show! Everytime I see a Le Corbusier chair or a Mondrian-eque window I realize how much detail they put into everything and how cool it all is.

I like the bugs, I'm just not loving the hooked rug part of it.

Looks interesting if the walls are high enough. I was in a restaurant the other day that had hardwood ceilings that were about 8 foot high. It really made it feel cramped.

I love them. Black, red and white holly hocks would look so striking in a mass planting.

This is a common problem in pretty much everywhere. I used to live in London and between the rent and expensive transportation costs it pretty much left me broke each month. It's insane that rat infested studio crap holes still get rented out at 1-2 grand a pop! Ugh.

Looks like office lighting. It's a good idea but I'd like the light to be softer...maybe small led white lights that looked like fairy lights would look nice.

I love the color of this house. Does anyone have any idea what would be a good paint to use to get the same effect?

This space is very cute and cozy. You guys did a great job. I'd love to have my office/clutter room look as nice :)

I love retro inspired fans! I bought one recently at Lowes but the problem is it sounds like a jet engine, even on the lowest setting!! I'd love to find a nice looking retro fan that is quiet.

I love the bright colors. It reminds me of the houses in Mexico with all the bright, lively colors. On the right house it pops.

Decals? I think this is probably very expensive wallpaper.

Disimbodied lady parts are sexist end of. I know it's trying to hearken back to the days of tea parties, high tea etc. but this is a product for mass consumption not high art. Just because we are desensitized to female body parts being stuck on things to make it kitsch or more "arty" does not mean it's not misogynistic. Are we just supposed to shrug and give a pass to anything that claims to be art? Like urinals that are the shape of womens mouths or sinks that look like a woman bending over in mens restrooms at posh hot spots? "Oh that's just art tee hee." If it indeed is some sort of cometary it's a pretty over done and trite one at best.
