    I'm not a wallpaper person and I find the light too fussy. Not keen on the floor either. Other than that I love it.

    Oh, and ditch the chamber pot.

    Feel the same way. Would like to have seen a white big square tile floor. I don't get the wall paper at all.

    I like it except for the flooring and I think it would've looked better with white cabinets and appliances.

    LOL I have those cabinets in the before picture (strongly considers painting cabinets...)

    My countertops are charcoal with a wood edge, so they wouldn't work, dammit...unless I paint the wood edge charcoal too. I really wish I could afford stone or marble. Plus, if someone paints your cabinets like that and does a half-ass job, they look like crap and there's no going back, so I'm scared to try it. And believe me, where I live it is EXTREMELY difficult to find a good painter. Lots of half-ass ones, though.

    It looks too cluttered now , they should have gone for less colour.

    Agreed - I actually think a white floor would have tied the cabinetry look together, and I'm not usually a white floor person. But I like it overall - I'm probably a bit swayed by the robin's egg blue, I love that colour.

    I think the wallpaper is supposed to pick up the colour in the floor tile.
