    TOO MUCH STUFF.

    take out half of it. a room that big shouldn't feel stuffy.

    I like it, especially the outdoor living room area.

    I was thinking the same thing. It's nice stuff but so damn cluttered.

    Looks like the Ballard Designs catalog exploded here. Don't ask me why I know about Ballard Designs.

    I'd love something like the outdoor area. I love the idea of an outdoor kitchen. The rest, blah.

    it looks very cramped. and on top of that, it's stuffed with ugly furniture. i feel claustrophobic just looking at it. the beach looks nice, though.
    oh, and can someone please throw out all the chandeliers & the lantern? thank you.

    You wanna see cramped? Come to my house. This? Isn't cramped. I'd love to see different furnishings though. It's on the beach and has great views - how bad could it be?

    you don't think the dining & living room look very narrow? i admit i get claustrophobic really easily. there has to be one low ceiling or narrow space and i start to feel queasy. i'm used to open spaces with not a lot of furniture. where do you live?

    Admittedly some of the spaces are narrow looking, but not as narrow as my house (I live in Garden City, MI in a 1500 sqft ranch - this is a 5,700 sqft area that could fit three of my homes). I'd gladly attempt to squeeze my stuff into here! You know, for a week or so.

    I like the girly look of the living room.. The one with the white fireplace. I'd love to live there!
