    It sure looks lovely from the outside. The inside however is horrendous imo. I hate it all.

    They can't get enough of the area rugs can they? The bannister is pretty.

    The interior spaces are ok, and I like the staircase and the wood floors. I love the exterior, it really looks like a 1940's movie star's house.

    Overall the interior decor is really not that bad at all. The rugs are a bit much though.

    I've decided I really don't like the whole Spanish Colonial look. I'm not sure why but it seems very difficult to furnish in any other way than this. It's all a bit chiche'd and depressing. I'm a rug whore but these ones are cheap and nasty (probably cost a fortune LOL).

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

    ^ I agree. I can sometimes get on board with the fresh white sunroom or living room with the minimalist fireplace (not exactly pictured here), but otherwise the whole look just isn't for me. I like right angles, trim, cleaner lines, and cooler colours!

    not a fan of the style either and this house is a particularly ugly specimen.

    I like it! I'll move right in (they will take their crappy shit with them though, won't they??? and as a firm rule, I am against stenciling, so they can paint right over that!!) Done and done.
