    It's gorgeous: the décor, the exterior, the location! I covet it.

    WTF? It's a 1970s horror inside. I would burn ALL the furniture and start again with stuff that wasn't reclaimed from a skip outside a student squat.

    Well done, great mix, it feels nonchalant and lived-in rather than the desperate attempt to be whimsical by some random decorator

    I love the outside, but the inside looks rather run down. I HATE all the furniture, too.

    I do not like the furniture or decor, but the house itself is absolutely beautiful.

    Happy trails to you...until we meet again.
    I love & miss you Dad.

    HATE the kitchen table and the fug chairs. Dislike most of the furniture, but the house itself is nice. The only good thing about the decor is that I can tell that the people living there genuinely like the way they decorated it and didn't do so just because they thought it would be fashionable.

    Agree w/the majority: exterior is awesome. Interior is horrifying. BUT, like it overall.
