I do believe this contest is all about a BIG WINDOW room and not necessarily a room that you would live in. After all, many magazine spreads are very much for looks only & don't look approachable OR livable. A big window challenge is all about the WOW factor and Eddie has definitely delivered that. So what if you wouldn't want to live here?? It's pretty, colorful and full of eye candy, just what a big window in NYC should be. I think it's a beautiful display of the older Modern Woman and not anywhere close to "granny-ish". And who cares if it's kid-friendly or not?? IT's a storyboard, not real life.

Nice job, Eddie!

This is a great product and I've used it on the ends of kitchen/bath cabinets, as well as one wall in a guestbath with chairrail. Worked like a charm in both areas, here's my blog post about it:

It really looks like the "real thing" and my friends are amazed when I tell them it's wallpaper. Great product for those, like me, who do not have the power tools to do the real thing & I love the real stuff too.

Hi, Sashi, that bedspread was a yardsale find, but it came from Target. I ordered the drapes to match at Target online, so you may still be able to get the comforter too. Check online!

Hey, Christina, yes, I did get the rabbit weathervane at Target about 3 years ago. Waited til it was on closeout & snagged one. I haven't seen them lately though. You may check Ebay, as those bunnies multiplied all over the internet.

Congrats, Layla on your feature here! Wow, this is a tough crowd. I'm a Southern girl too (also in Birmingham) & very proud to call Layla a friend. I think she and Kevin have done an outstanding job on making this little house their home. It takes a lot of work and effort to accomplish a project like this & I applaud you both for a job well done. While we have different styles, I sure can appreciate a well thought out plan and I love, love the look you have created. I think Layla is a fantastic designer!
