Ha ha ha, Lori and bepsf, seems we're three opinionated people who love to debate and get our opinions out there. It was all in good fun. No hurt feelings here, I've rather enjoyed it.
The best comment I've seen so far, though, is Allison's. She has her dream kitchen. Can't argue with that.

Love the custom Living Room couch. I have one as well. Steve's work is top-notch.

Now that you've clarified your point, no. Your original post stating "there is CERTAINLY 'better' and 'worse'" art (emphasis mine) was very condescending.

Judging someone's art or home decor is not wrong or controversial, you're right. The tone that both bepsf and you use above is condescending in my opinion, so I called you both on it. (Please note: "My opinion.")

While we're at it, where's your house, to be judged?

Back to topic, again, though. I happen to love the extra sofa in the living room and the aquarium in the kitchen, both of which seem to really ruffle your feathers. The home owners obviously love to entertain, so they've made room for many guests to sit comfortably. In a very beautiful way. And they have interesting items in the kitchen to discuss.

Hey Sally and slow, in my opinion bepsf's post was way overwrought and needed editing (and I found that ironic, since the post was about how the house needed editing). I found it amusing and I commented on it. I wasn't attacking bepsf, I was critiquing his/ her post. I have a right to my opinion and I stand behind it.
As far as "better" or "worse" taste, slowdown, that is such a condescending this to write. Taste is so subjective. Your taste is no better than anyone else's.
Back to topic: I happen to LOVE this house.

You said it, Volvoguy.

Whoever this bepsf is, s/he clearly doesn't get the wonderfully whimsical eclectic style of this house (which fits in so beautifully in Silverlake) and is overcompensating for her lack of depth with a hopelessly obtuse, overwrought post -- ironically about how something needs editing (pot meet kettle).

Spectacular remodel. Such a breath-taking house.

I couldn't disagree with LoriSF more: I love the whimsical paint color and eclectic mirror and fixtures in the bathroom. It shows you have a fun sense of style and a playful personality. Unexpected, maybe. Daring, most definitely. But cheap? Not on your life.

The kitchen, with so much space and all those windows, is an entertaining cook's dream.

Bravo.
