Okay. Things I desperately covet: The entryway floor. All of the furniture in the family room. All of the bedroom furniture. The two-toned metal cabinets in the kitchen. The tile floor in the peach bathroom.

Seriously, this house is great. I love all of the wood accents and the curb appeal as well! What do you think?

    Absolutely fabulous. Everything about it is pretty terrific. I, too, love the family room furniture and could move it right into my family room today.

    I think the “open” wall decor between the front door and the dining room is so interesting I wish there were more pictures.
