Hi, Maxwell! How are you?

If you get a few minutes, attached are the pics of my living room and kitchen. I think the lr needs a makeunder just like those ladies that wear too much makeup.

Hopefully, you'll find them inspiring even if you end up adding a section called "what not to do."

ANyway, see you soon!

Warm regards


Diana, personally, we love your home and it glows with character. Could it use a little pruning? Sure. Here are our top picks of what to do:

1. Edit down and lower your artwork so that it's all 57" on center
2. Paint over the dark green wall/ceiling trim with the wall color
3. OMG paint your front and closet doors!!!!
