    The bathroom sink is far too small but I love the built-ins with the fireplace.

    We had those glass end tables when I was a kid. I remember them because the caps on the corners came off. My mom tried to go a little bold and modern in our family/tv room. They didn't last too long.

    It looks like a classic Craftsman style house dressed up in really cheap mid-century crap. I hate when that happens. Plus the photos are too close up so you can't tell much of anything about the house itself.

    How did this get featured in a magazine? Picture of a stove, shitty back door and a purse on a doorknob? My house us more fucking photogenic than that!

    I knew you guys would hate that shabby chic crap. I am pretty sure the duvet's Rachel Ashwell.

    I like some of their vintage pieces, but I don't think they are of nice enough quality to be showcased in such a stark way, in the sort of "curated" style. And I always take exception to photos that do little more than feature something from Ikea, which at least one of these pics does. They also have two rugs that look hazardous. Overall this approaches something I could like but doesn't actually get there.
