    ugh, they're ugly and i can just see myself sitting in one of the barstools, banging my foot or leg on the stupid column.

    Not my style at all, too formal and traditional but it looks great from the outside.

    Stephen Gambrel can make perfect rooms. He's young and he's built his business fast. I'm surprised I don't love all the decor because I usually do. What I see is all the ka-ching ka-ching. That's how designers make their money - on product. The more product I sell in terms of fabric and furniture, the more I can call it making a living.

    As for the architect Stern he's brilliant and the most uptight formal man. There's a joke in the business where they say even his wife calls him Robert A.M Stern.

    Oh we just drug them and tie them down till the job is done. Who can be bothered....pesky clients...

    One of my wallpaper guys does work for Gambrel. He's one of the only designers that can say give me 4 million as a retainer and take a number. He's really that good in my opinion. His client's have 5 homes to live in so they never live through renovation and they never have to write more than that one check. All service operation, lol.

    What I don't understand is just how many people they intend to have in their bedroom. There's a sofa and two chairs. Do you invite everyone into your room to watch a movie?

    ^^^^ Kids maybe? Doubt it, though. They probably just had too much room. I have a sitting area in my bedroom (though it basically doubles as a clothes rack/laundry dumping ground) and we just furnished it to fill the space. However when it isn't covered in laundry baskets and dry cleaning, the kids like to eat breakfast in our room. You're right, though. They overfurnished. That's not just a sitting area, it's a freakin' living room.
