    Hideous wall colours. This is one of those places where white actually does look better. If you want colour, do it with the soft furnishings or pictures and rugs.

    The interior colors sucks but hey, it's Antigua and I'd probably spend most of my time outdoors anyway.

    I could work with it and make some changes. kitchen, tile floors, wall color have got to go. other than that it would make a nice retreat!

    i hate the wall colours and the colonies throwback décor but paint it all white and do it up all beachy-minimalist and i'm in.
    also, knock down that silly half-open wall in the kitchen and make it one big space, maybe add an island.

    I'll take it with a re-do, too. Kitchen's gotta go, it's horrible. The wall colors are gross and would probably make my vertigo worse. Location and views sell it.

    It's Antigua. I can smell the tradewinds already. I'd have to repaint first though.
