Beautiful home. I have one question, and this is something that has been on my mind for the past few weeks. As evident from all bright windows in your tour, I like my home bright and sunny as well and therefore like to have the windows open so that I can get as much light inside as possible. Unfortunately, I just realized that leaving my windows open have taken a toll on my artwork collection. I have been feeling very sad looking at faded colors of paintings that I have collected over the years. The damage has already been done, but now I try as much as possible to keep the shades down resulting in a not-so bright home. I was curious if you have any thoughts about it or have used any measure to protect your artwork from UV rays.Thanks.

Really, really nice place. I love the way you have tastefully decorated your place with art. Nice use of restraint.

I really love the fact how down to earth and humble this couple is. Even I am scared of colors, but I felt that a few punches of color and texture might help. Duh me…help who? These nice people live there and if they are happy in their space why am I trying to help. They must be really organized. I am actually impressed by lack of clutter. It is refreshing to see a home tour where I don't have to read through long narratives about flea market trips, or dumpster diving or fugly family heirlooms.

Love all the colors and patterns, and yet everything looks so clean. Your guests are lucky. How did you match those curtains?

I love her, and desperately want to see pictures of her work. She is also so attractive and carries herself so well. I remember seeing her in a Sari in an episode shot in India, and she is likely the only Caucasian I ever saw who carried it so beautifully.

christab, it is a 2 M. dollar home. I saw this home during the open house. The home was absolutely beautiful, as is.

I love clean and modern lines, but this did not hit me the way I had hoped for. On the other hand, a very strict discipline in terms of decorating might make this home more functional for their lifestyle. The couple has a busy professional and social life, and it seems they enjoy a lot of things (food, friends, art, etc.). I can see how having a maintenance free home can leave time for them to do other fun things as a family. I think I am a little disappointed that I did not get to see any of the art work of the resident artist :(

With the specific pictures provided above, I will take minimal. Boy, how I hate a nice modern home ruined by grandma's quilts.

Love the after. Yes, a lot of work went in the project, but the end result is worth it. Great job. The before was atrocious, a term I have never used before :)

Angie, can I hire your husband and father-in-law to do something similar for me here in Bay area. Seriously, I will pay for the airfare.

About #9, the brass color looked somewhat dated and cheap. However, we found the price very attractive for the quality, size and style, particularly when other colors are selling north of $150. Therefore, we went ahead with the purchase and spray painted it in white color. The final result is stunning.

Love, love, love this tour. I am a globe trotter but my aesthetics don't usually jibe with home tours of " world travelers", primarily as I find them too cluttered for my own museum-ish aesthetics. This tour is so refreshing. That bedroom wall is one of the most striking shot I have seen in a long-long time in AT tours. I agree with previous posters about having something similar in Living room, where even a minimalist like me was craving for some drama. Please, please show us the 13 ft sculpture.
