Family Intervention Needed

August 15th, 2014 · 7 Comments

Four family rooms for your consideration.

What would you remove in this family room to look less busy?

After the family photos are removed and the curtain unknotted, what else should be done here?

This one’s too easy: the gun safe, the miniature popcorn machine, the jacket, the dog, the tie-dye towel, the cuckoo clock, etc.

The vines, the clothes, the macramé.  Anything else?

It Made an Impression

July 22nd, 2014 · 5 Comments

This Phoenix home made an impression on our reader Jayne, but not a good impression.  This is the master bedroom, for example.

The sellers trimmed their olive tree.  They lion-tailed the branches.  Also known as lollipopping.  It’s a topiary terror.

Or it’s a spaceship on the bottom section with aliens waving around.  Thank you, Jayne!
