Original Entry John's Bold, Bright, Day or Night One. I grew up in ranch houses and they didn't look like this!..." "I LOVE it when people take something (like a ranch house) in a completely unexpected direction-- it just makes me believe that we don't have to accept things the way they are... there is so much oppurtunity to change things for the better. Another thing I love is the graphic elements throughout: an F here, a C there. Those are such nice touches! I can tell this is done by a graphic designer, and I think he's exactly right about what he's done: he taken "what works in print to interior spaces." Finally, I just enjoy seeing that John has made choices that I definitely wouldn't have, and he's been completely successful with them. Painting the walls that rich graphite color would (for me) threaten to make the room too dark. Instead it is alive with the colors and shapes that pop off the wall. Everywhere I look, I see something delightful or unexpected. The rich colors, graphic layout, and classic furniture pieces really do it for me."
