I looooooove this house….
Really nice but those grey cabinets in the kitchen…..no!
Nice outside but the inside has no soul…nothing but white…i accept that for some it’s a thing but bungalows typically have lots of detail and craftsmanship to show off and you just can’t see past the white…or i can’t. The overall size and rooms are great, i just have this definition in my head for bungalow and i like it, polished wood floors, kitchens that aren’t so sterile, a place that feels warm and fun for kids to be in…so yeah, this grown up version is a little to commercial art studio and sterile for my taste but hey, nothing some paint, 50’s kitchen appliances, and wood floors couldn’t fix right up.
I’m not sure why the owner’s decorating aesthetic is the focus…. it’s a lovely home. I’m impressed by the spacious feel of 700 square feet, the clever storage in the wall, the little dining nook, etc. Take what you will and leave the rest, there’s no point in beating them up because you don’t like the way they’ve decorated.
That dining room table — way too tight of a space, even for a table as tiny as that one. The chairs can’t be comfortably pulled out for seating; their backs are against the wall. Maybe replacing the table with a mid-century Danish gate-leg would help — something modern, but with a warm finish, like cherry or maple, to offset the sterility John points out above. Expand it as needed to take advantage of the space between the kitchen and the nook. Fold it up after, to open the passage back up. The rolled-steel columns under the pediment give the front elevation an imbalanced look. The proportions are off. Would’ve gone with two simple bungalo Dorics. And why no shower-curtain? A bit disingenuous to leave that out; the bathroom’s got to work aesthetically and functionally with it in. The kitchen — really nice work, though I don’t get the faucet. Totally out of context.
This is a beautiful little house. Small with lots of breathing room. Really lovely.
Disappointed because the house is so cute on the outside. Missing charm.
