    awesome space, and they've got some great pieces but it needs to be un-elle décor-ified. i hate the black kitchen, and with that vase of flowers on it, the counter and cabinets look like they belong in a minimalist funeral home.
    i also despise the giant photo of a basketball player in the living room. i never could embrace the concept of sport art.
    in the second photo, i like the painting on the right but the one on the left is awful.
    love love love the dining room table and chairs.

    Do they carry that chair to every room or something?

    I'm all for minimalism in design but this is just institutional. It has that sad aspect of a hospital that puts up inspirational, but faded works in the terminal ward in a vain and superficial attempt to ease the passing of the unfortunate souls that dwell within.

    I love this place. No I don't love everything in it but, I love the feel of the place. I love uncluttered with straight lines. I love the the pops of color. I know that some people find minimalist decorating sterile but, it makes me feel so calm looking at it. Maybe because my home is strewn with crap from one end to the other and the lack of clutter just makes me feel peaceful.

    So that long black, unidentifiable bar is the kitchen?

    How is that family friendly? White, cold, and sterile having nothing to do with kids.

    It is. I could trash the whole thing up just making toast.
