Today I toured Lincoln's Illinois home on-line, via photos. I was just a little surprised at how boldly the carpet and wall paper selections were. Many of the rooms have absolutely no coordination what-so-ever, and some of the color choices just smack of what I would expect. It's not to say it's good or bad, just surprising, that's all.
On the whole, it was affirmation that a home is a place to "lived" in. It might not look pretty, but if it's comfortable to you, and it functions for all who reside in it, then it is...as it should be.
