    I love this. Not all to my taste, but very funky and personal and yes, colorful.

    Way too much junk and knickknack type crap in every nook and cranny. Way too many pictures on the walls and I hate the 1970's heavy drapery. I don't understand why some people feel like every available space has to be taken up by useless junk. It's like they're allergic to open space or something.

    And what is up with the portrait of Colonel Sanders from KFC on the wall? These folks must lurve them some Kentucky Fried Chicken or something because that's just bizarre.

    I love the space, but overall too much junk and weird crap that doesn't go together.

    The drapes do look heavy and thick, I don't see drapes like that much, especially in that drab olive color.

    There are some pieces I like.

    It's trying way too hard to be "authentic", including those bloody chairs again. Love the native garden.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I like it. Wouldn't want to live in it every day but it would be very cool for a visit. I like the color scheme. There is a lot of stuff to dust, for sure...

    I HATE drapes. They would be the first items to be blowtorched.

    I love some of the old retro furniture but I would need to get rid of about 90% of the "art" even though I like a lot of it.

    Pare down the "collections", get rid of the godawful drapes, and replace the plastic chairs with real chairs and I could live very happily and comfortably there. The moment I scrolled down and saw the teal and purple chairs, my eyes sighed from relief.
