    i love the space but not the way they've decorated it. the backyard is outstanding for being in the middle of a city.

    I know it's wrong and bad of me, but I liked the crazy 1960s facade. What they did looks fine, though.

    the exterior was totally better before. it's so generic now.

    I love the space, but not the furnishing.

    I liked the 1960s look, too! It was funky in a good way.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one! I always get really happy when I see '60s buildings.

    I think they are really leather. But that is an-umm-odd shade.

    i liked the before façade better too. i might have added some windows to it but it's way better than the faux-old generic building it is now.
    i also hate the dining room table and chairs but it's a pretty sweet space.
