    Default A home in the 19th-century farmhouse style in Aruba

    This five-bedroom five-bath home was custom-built in 1995 to evoke a traditional 19th-century Aruban farmhouse, called a cunucu. It is on the market for $1.2 million.

    reds and warm neutrals are quite possibly my least favourite colours for home decor. add to that the hideous furniture, floors, curtains, finishes, and faux-old architectural style, and this is another one i'd have to bomb and start over.

    Awesome space - some of the colors suck but overall, I like it. I like the dining room hanging lights and the beamed ceiling in the master. The kitchen is awesome.

    I'd happily take it. Plus, great kitchen, soft breezes, lush greens.....

    The dining room curtains should be the first thing burned!
