    Except for a couple chairs, there is nothing to my taste here BUT I admire how these people can show off so much of their shit without the home feeling stuffed and crowded. That's laudable. Wish I had some of that skill.

    I like the artwork, but all the "funky" chairs are just trying too hard.

    I like a lot of their furniture and artwork (we had those same dining chairs! In the 70s!) but it's way too cluttered and like greys said, trying too hard. Bonus points for the cute little Westie though.

    Never thought I'd say it, but too many pictures so it feels closed in. I never liked this era's design ideas and this place just confirms it.

    Again: first impressions from the first shot were already a turn-off: way too artsy fartsy. Best thing about it is the dog.

    some great pieces, some really ugly ones. same with the artwork. either way, there is just too much stuff and it feels more like a vintage furniture store than a home. i'd get rid of at least half the stuff in there and just streamline. midcentury should be about clean lines and open space and a few carefully chosen pieces, not clutter.
    i like the house itself but the rugs and carpeting and ugly tile floor have to go and be replaced by either polished concrete or hardwood floors.

    Hate it. Way too cluttered and a clusterfuck of clashing designs, colors, styles, and patterns.
