    This reminds me of an older casino in Vegas. Not very comfy for a home.

    Wow that looks really classy! I would feel like I’d have to pay a small fortune just to eat there.

    Tacky then, tacky now. Though this one is in Phoenix, it seemed like every other house on Long Island and in Cherry Hill NJ had this tasteless feature.

    That is sooo classic. Nice touch with the wall vent, too.

    The mirrors need to go, but I like the arches a lot, would love to design some kind of Asian, Moroccan, or middle eastern room around it, I think it’s a nice feature…..
    The rest of the room that is reflected in the mirrors looks pretty bland, though. I find it a somewhat surprising feature that an otherwise really boring room would have such an architectural element in it, the arches have a richness to them while the rest of the room looks like super bland 70’s cookie cutter stuff, there’s no woodwork around the windows, no molding or trim anywhere else in the room, the arches seem out of step with the rest of it, and the apartment white walls do nothing for it, bleh….
    The arches may have been built in to disguise an unattractive soffit carrying ductwork…..
    Drapes that conform to the arches and cover the mirrors, drapes instead of those awful vertical blinds, moldings, and a warmer, richer color would work wonders. The ceiling fan has gotta go too!
