I've been completely preoccupied with househunting and a kitchen update so I can sell this house, but more on that later.
I have been somewhat obsessed with a very large and rather groovy house.

It needs a little help with an identity crisis. It seems to be Brady bunch on the outside and Olive Garden on the inside.

Don't even get me started about the colors.

It is absolutely gigantic!

I really think that this would make a lovely library, without the pool table and light fixture of course. It has French doors enclosing it and more of that odd, distressed black trim.

The 90's called and they want their faux finishes back .
This house wants a Barcelona chair and an understated palette.
I know, understated is trendy but even a lover of red has to know when to stop.

Don't you think the above is a fair dose of mid-centuy and rustic?

I don't really know what I could do to liven this up.
Any thoughts?
