    God that's awful. Why are so many of these modern places lacking in color? You can be modern but still have some warmth and character.

    i like it a lot. and i also disagree that colour is the only way to bring warmth to a home. this place doesn't feel cold to me at all. i love the way the wood, brick and gold touches work together and they have some beautiful furniture.

    I though this WAS your new apartment! Has SPUT written all over it.

    It's pretentious as shit to me. The only going I like is the kitchen bars.

    I really like how uncluttered it is. Minimal cleaning and upkeep, gotta love that. And the floors are gorgeous.
