Earlier this week, I asked readers which of the five “Inside Man” room re-dos they liked best, so now it’s time to reveal your favorite. Envelope, please. And the “winner” is… drumroll…

DAVID’S ROOM! I think each of the rooms suited the guy and his city, but David’s Brooklyn living room — in layered shades of gray — was the runaway favorite with 244 votes, followed by Barney’s LA loft with 159. Here’s a glimpse of what readers had to say about each of these spaces.

David’s living room in Brooklyn, before and after

I really loved David’s LR. Interestingly, in the early stages I thought it would be… meh. Happy it turned out so spiffy. – kushkush

Jarrett’s basement in Chicago, before and after

I gotta go for the bar – It had almost Nothing in it and Zero function – yet it became a great & inviting space primarily from the use of color. – bepsf

Barney’s loft in Los Angeles, before and after

I voted for Barney’s loft, great color choices with accents of black. They were all great redesigns, but I felt his made the most dramatic statement. – designer22

I liked Michael’s..lots of family and meaningful memoribilia. Isn’t that what “home” is all about? – Jolarry

James’ bedroom in Atlanta, before and after

I loved aspects of the bar and the loft, but the purple paired with the warm wood furniture in James’ bedroom really won me over. – MisaL

Thanks, everyone, for voting and for giving such helpful feedback! And thanks, of course, to all the guys who graciously opened up their homes to me and my team. I loved this project, and it’s been an invaluable experience that’s taught me a lot. 🙂
