    it's a gorgeous space but i hate those wanky curtains and the weird carpet bits, and not crazy about the furniture but it's a beautiful renovation. vienna has the best apartments - massive, gorgeous parquet, mouldings, big double doors. they preserved all of that while making it thoroughly modern and comfortable too.

    If it want for the kids room I'd think that was the sales literature for a corporate rental.

    Has a hotel suite vibe to some of it. Hate the mushroom-cap lights.

    I don't care for the vertical scale; their furniture is all very "low". Great bones though.

    That was my reaction to the curtain bathroom "door." Big fat NOPE.

    And we've talked about this, carpet in the bathroom is always a big fat nope as well. It looks like a cut-out of cheapo carpet too, just plonked in front of the sink, too close to the shower with no wall or shower curtain. Bad logistics all around.
