    no. there are a couple of pieces i would steal and rescue but overall it's a frou-frou, girlie mess.
    i do like the dining room table and chairs (not the yellow ones, the long wood table and dark chairs) and the ceiling lamps above that, the 2 black lamps on the wall in one of the living rooms, that funky dog on top of the mantelpiece.

    The wallpaper in the bedroom and bathroom frighten me. I have never seen a wallpaper that I ever liked. Ever.

    I love the wallpaper, and I love the paintings she has. Its a bit cluttered and some of the furniture is horrid but I kind of like this cosy feeling that this has. You kind of feel that she doesn't freak out if the kids leave stuff around.
    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.

    Or pets. My dog is black and she'd destroy a light colored couch with her fur.

    It is a little on the 'frou-frou' and 'precious' side, but on the upside it is also lively and colorful.

    And no white carpets with kids/pets for certain.

    The wallpaper is hideous. Some of that furniture looks like thrift-store rejects.
