Oh hello front of the house! Your stone walls are positively huggabunch huggable. Neighborhood cookout is definitely at this dude's house.
|Where's the right side cord for that light fixture? Photoshop?|
Calling Unhappy Hipsters... Here's the kitchen/angel landing pad from the inside. Talk about some incredible views while prepping pizza rolls. Might get a tad chilly but they probably have Pyrenees-issued snuggies to keep warm.
|So does the single cord emphasize the ceiling height? Just make them both invisible... I'm not getting this.|
I'm starting to lose my lust a little bit...
OH FOR THE LOVE OF GAWD! I'm not expecting to see award-winning interiors but I was expecting at the very least a little effort. Instead I got a grouping of lonely furniture and a dumbass rug. It looks like my house for chrissake.
It's a shame really because that wall of windows is really stunning. The opposite wall is an epic fail if I've ever seen one. I know from the outside the angled roof goes straight to the ground which is awesome but I was hoping the interior would fake a real wall somehow - even a half one. Nothing says easy furniture placement like an acutely angled wall! You probably wouldn't care because you'd have constant concussions from smacking your head on that jacked up diagonal. I know when I build my dream house I want it to feel like an awkward attic! Squeee!
This is better but that angled wall peeking out still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I've decided that I much prefer to have these houses as my neighbors rather than live in them because obviously they haven't figured out how to make the insides match the awesomeness of the outsides. I know you're probably thinking that I must hate contemporary interiors and I don't - I REALLY DON'T - I just rarely see any that make me want to dry hump them like their exteriors do. But I will try my best to find some that I think are successful. Next week...
I happen to like contrast so it's kinda like a visual peanut butter and jelly sandwich. (I'm a madame - I like elegant and delicious metaphors.) You need the perfect ratio of each component for the right balance of salty/sweet or inside/outside. You can't have jelly on jelly because that's just pure madness. Too much peanut butter and you'll suffocate in sticky.
In this totally appropriate metaphor, that sweet (blackberry?) exterior really needs something warm and salty (ew) on the inside so the only choice is something like this:

Gawd I'm good at this game!
