    It's just terrible. I didn't see anything that I liked. The bathroom sink is alarming.

    As well as the color selection. So-aggressive.

    I like the space, but I very much agree that the color schemes are too aggressive and not in the least harmonious.

    I'd need a barf bag to enter the house, and I don't think I could go into that yellow-teal-black room without passing out.

    They actually CHOSE those colours? I'm all for making a statement with colour but maybe paint one wall instead of the whole room? The fireplace is horrendous too and I assume that gets a lot of use in Minnesota yah?

    Blech.. WTF is up with those tiki torches in the yard? I'm guessing that's what they are.

    You can do pops of color, and this is just overkill. It's a migraine waiting to happen.
