    Gee you have to move a lot of things to dust. I bet they don't do any of their own dusting or they would lose all of those dust collector ornaments.

    This is it? The best they could find?

    Different strokes, I guess. A white and light blue airy color scheme just doesn't work for me, plus I tend to like ornate, dark woods and heavy colors.

    I assume the owners of these generic and oh-so predictable white and pale blue interiors don't have kids or dogs? I dread to think how much that stupid sink cost.

    You can't even see the bones of the house at all. It looks like a catalogue.

    And WTF is that nasty walnut veneer chest of drawers? Looks like they found it in a garage sale.

    There are more pictures - including pictures of the exterior - at Country Living's site. I still don't understand what's so freaking special about this place. I know people who live in houses far nicer and better decorated than this yawner.

    Please be sure and check out the full crystal chandelier over the tub in picture #17.

    I love the kitchen sink, my favorite part of the whole house!

    Way too much white. It's beautiful, but a little vanilla at the same time.

    Hate the floral scrolled wallpaper. I prefer mirrors or large paintings over fireplaces, those multiple generic plant drawings look out of place to me. Hate the sink, stupid thing to waste money on. That chest looks out of place also and just plain ugly.

    I like the bed and the window seat in the bedroom. Love all the counter space in the kitchen. Overall it looks like a hodgepodge, many things don't seem to go together; it's meh at best.
