Who was your favorite entry and why?
John's Mission Melange. I love how his apartment respects the original craftsman details and blends it beautifully with some modern and classic pieces. The kitchen looks so warm and inviting, I would absolutely love to have a dinner party there. I am constantly pulled between my love for modern and vintage and this apartment creates a fantastic compromise.

What's your next improvement?

The office area. It is in serious need of an overhaul to make it more professional (for client meetings), inviting (for home entertainment) and conducive to creative work. We would like a simple, streamlined double workspace table with one side that would double as a meeting area with new, bright colored chairs. Rolling file and drawer cabinets would be tucked underneath the table. The shelves would be reconfigured to better maximize wall storage with mini spotlights for lighting. A boldly colored rug would be great to define the space. After that, the next area is the bedroom and bed.
