    no. fugly and kitch. also, i don't know what the exact name is, but i think the colour on the walls in the picture below has got to be one of the ugliest colours in the world. and yet so many people love it and have it on their walls or paint the whole exterior of their house with it.

    I love the house exterior and I love the spaces. I would change some of the interior designs and furnishings however.

    And the room sputnik posted is the worst one.

    I like the bathroom-the mirror would have to go though.

    I do not like alot of the 'tapestry fug rugs' that adorn the place, get rid of them and the more 'kitschier' stuff and I like what is going on. I like the bedroom and the bed(sans kitsch and tapestry shit). The outside/exterior is a bit much but I cannot help but love it.

    Those huge ball lantern white thing lights are a horror.

    I like the white walls together with all of the exposed woodwork.

    And it has a library!

    I often watch UK househunting programs like "Escape to the country" and stuff.
    If only the weather in the UK, Ireland, Scotland were better, we'd certainly
    consider moving there. The countries are beautiful with spectacular views
    and nature.

    I like this property a lot, even though it is totally opposite to my usual taste.
    It looks very relaxed.

    I love the look of the house along with the outdoor spaces. I hate the artwork and the furniture these people have.

    The library is fab. except for the pregnant chained up skeleton statue. That's just some weird shit.

    I'd get rid of some of the hippy crap but overall I love it too (especially the rugs, Soj!).

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Well if you take the rugs, you have to take ALL of them, including the sprawled dead animal carcass one to the lower left of the bed in the bedroom!

    I do like a few of the rugs, but they are just way overdone IMO.

    That pregnant chained thing in the libarary...WTF? I had missed that!

    they have some other chained dead shit in the first pic..and wtf with the animal skulls all around? That is just what I want over my oven/cooktop-an amimal skull! No room is complete without one.
