Tiffany & Allan's Ship Captain's Studio Small Cool Contest

When submitting our judge's notes, here's what I had to say...

"I have a real soft spot for the ability of decoration and furniture placement to make a small space work, and this one really does, for just that reason. I’m also always a fan of a tradition shell with less traditional contents! Permission to come aboard!!"

Yay, T&A!!! Wait.

Having been in the contest myself, I have to tell you how incredibly hard it was to rank the top performers... but Brian's was definitely in my top 2.

These still may be too MCM, but have you looked at Gus Modern?

But also, even if what you find *is* "too MCM," you can still mix it into a room that isn't.

Also, look for sofas where the feet can be removed. That may get one through your door.

Great point about the tally not including the new appliances.

To the folks who say "White gets too dirty, too fast," what colors do you live with?

But, um, were those raised panels lost under paint?? That would be a LOT of paint to be lost under!

Plus, the whole 1% accusation is really, really tired. And really, really inaccurate here.

You make the assumption that anyone with a budget has taste. And, well, that ain't the case (Donald Trump, anyone?) And you DO realize that this home is filled with parts of Lori's business, right? And that the piano is a family heirloom, right? (Just two examples.)

I think criticizing a home's design because it APPEARS that money was spent really does the talent of the homeowner a disservice.

Plus, even people who *can* invest in a home still have lessons to teach. To shut that down does YOU a disservice.

Should we limit tours to people who pull stuff off the street or the aisles of IKEA, and share 250 square feet with a roommate and two cats?
