Who was your favorite entry and why?

Southwest #22: LouLou & Nico's Duplex Deluxe is absolutely my favorite. Somehow they've been able to create space that conveys passion (must be all that red!), but is also very calm and inviting. It takes skill to create that kind of balance. Plus, it strikes me that everything in their home was chosen with care, which is something I greatly admire.

What's your next improvement?

It never ends, does it? I feel pretty good about my space because in the past year I've been able to finally and completely address all my storage needs. But now there are some lighting issues to fix…a couple of sets of track lighting that have got to go! A dramatic light fixture dropping down from the high ceiling is definitely on my list. I'd also like to change the counter in my kitchen, but first I need to find a good home/use for the existing counter because I don't want it to end up in the landfill.
