    What's with all the 70's retro? Move on, please.

    The space is awesome.

    not bad. i really like their colours.
    i don't like the dining room chairs (table is great though) or the flimsy sidetable, lamps and everything else on it.
    and the le corbusier recliner is kind of wasted in that cream colour, i'd get it in the spotted cowskin.
    the sofa, while not ugly, could be much, much better.
    there's too much clutter in the living room, and they need to get rid of the stupid ikea pine drawer thingie and find a better piece of furniture to put the stereo on, the one they have now looks like they stole it from a student apartment.

    I like the building and most of the kitchen but I don't care for the interior.

    It's livable, not entirely my taste, but I can see how people can like this.

    I like the space but everything seems so muddled inside.. like an IKEA catalog if IKEA existed circa 1976. And I'd be worrying constantly about my outside patio getting fucked up.

    Its ok. That tall wall of kitchen cabinets is crazy! They aren't even being use, just there to look cool.
