    i love it. and i don't usually like wood panelling on walls but i love it here because the wood is perfect, not too dark, not too lightf. gorgeous furniture, gorgeous artwork, great garden and of course the house is architecturally amazing.
    i want to move in.

    the only thing i'd get rid of are the sculptures in the second pic - what are they, african barbies? and the fountain with the head in the 6th pic.
    but everything else is just awesome.

    Dump all the afro centric art (just not my thing), lighten up the place (maybe the floor, it's a bit dark) and throw up some colorful abstract stuff and i will take it.

    The garden is fantastic. so restful.

    i like it very much. i especially like the yard, but it looks like they used some bonzai stuff which is too high maintenance for my taste. but they also included native plants, which i like - low maintenance, hardy, and drought resistant.

    I pretty much like it. Very interesting, not too cluttered, but not sterile at all. I would only make a few minor(idiosynchratic) changes. Very nice overall.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    I agree with both of you.

    The chandeliers over the dining room table look like giant gobs of man juice. Just sayin'.
