Excellent tour; I think the stairs are the best focal point. I like all the wood, really, but it was also nice to see the white in the kitchen, the bathroom & porches. The outside (not your usual "neat as a pin" actually seems fine & anyone walking by would never guess all the coolness inside.

Wonderful tour! Plenty of good design ideas/inspiration for anyone to adopt. "Small Cool" is fine too, but also usually heavy on the NY / CA $$$$ expensive side. I'd rather see tours like this than something insipid from 'Family Circle' or 'BH&G'.

The desk works with the surroundings & the surroundings work well with the desk; looks good. When was campaign furniture all the rage; late 70s/early 80s? The hardware seems to indicate this style.

I like the narrow grey hall table + the color chip feature.

Nice! Paint stripped and actually, a cool fabric choice.

Not all of us live in a "City". Small towns; especially those that aren't on the tourist 'A' list or maybe even 'B' list can have some great (read as LOW) prices on some great finds. Maybe not many of the iconic things commonly/often seen in AT photos but still, good finds if you have a good design, imaginative eye.

I'd say the Marvel comic book. There are more Sheldon Coopers out there that would want this than the others.

That was more NYC than NY. And, AT is pretty heavy NYC and CA. Still, I'm an avid follower.

There's a lot of contemporary eclectic design / stuff here, but also a LOT of clutter. So, good or bad, this tour is likely more "real life" than most other AT tours.

Crazy lucky to have been the only bidders. And yes, really need to see the whole house!

I was hoping it'd be a 'make it yourself'/DIY. Was thinking of doing it on a large scale for a local event. Looks like fun though.

There must be better examples than this. The ladshelves here just look cluttered and I'm not sure if this can be done without looking too cluttered or too empty. Save this kind of shelving for an outdoor garden or Farmer's Market.

Thank him for his service to our country & happy 4th of July. For starters, you let your own things/furnishings be the character and 'c'mon, new and modern isn't a bad thing. Looks like you're gaining nice floors, good windows and good kitchen; among other things. Be excited, not down.

My sister tried the bag over the back door of their lake cabin a few years ago. Didn't do a thing. Doubt if the pennies would be the trick. How about clean counters and absolutely all food put away?

That pale green and cream dresser really does look good! Paint gone right, for a change on a vintage piece.

I'd agree. The above studio would look great empty (good bones). Michelle's studio (empty) wouldn't be all that impressive, but she totally pulled it together (and not too girly) w/o cool windows, woodwork etc. And, calling Michelle's 'sweet' (imho) is kind of an insult. Reserve 'sweet' for a nursery or pre teen; not a design savvy adult woman.

Looks good. These tables are pretty common and I doubt any refinishing/staining (any color) would create a WoW as much as the paint. Smart to not skimp on priming before painting!

Goes to show elegance and old world art doesn't have to mean heavy, dark and dated. Pass on the bed canopy; too over the top, but otherwise, pretty good. Oh, those chairs are too cool looking by themselves to need a pillow on them.

Two year old Tour, but I don't recall it. Clean, fresh looking and they've won the challenge of mixing styles! Quite a few nice furniture finds. A nice change; nothing above the bed headboard. Art or Anything isn't always needed there. Good Tour!

Not Edina, Michigan. Edina, (one of the better suburbs) Minnesota & this is a cool looking home.
