My sister is a notorious plant killer too. We visited a garden centre and were looking at bonsai trees. One of them was obviously dead but had a quite hefty price tag on it. When she told her husband about it he said "you should have bought it, it would have saved you the trouble of killing one".

I have always thought trying paint colours out in a room before you buy was crazy until our last house. We decided to repaint our family room which was surrounded by windows (my most loved room as the views were wonderful). I chose the paint colour by, as usual, paint chip cards. When we got the 3 gallons home and started to paint (it was a mellow green), it looked more like vomit on the walls. We submitted and went out and purchased, with paint chips again, a colour of "paprika". Another bad choice when it hit the walls. Because the room had so many windows and the lighting was more natural, the colours were nowhere near the paint chip. However I now had 4 gallons of paint. My hubby and I then threw caution to the wind and decided what about combining the paint colours-- what harm eh? We then painted samples of the first choice, second choice and combined choice ( turned out with surprise to be a wonderful yellow colour) and invited family and friends for comment. All chose the combined colour. I can only say God probably felt sorry for us and we totally lucked out. But valuable lesson, sample on the wall first before buying gallons, especially in rooms with lots of natural lighting.

Skylark, my LR/DR looked like a patchwork quilt - I had so many colours of yellow - it was ridiculous. But I did eventually find the right colour! Thank goodness for those little pots of paint from BM.

Susan, I will testify that those tall wing backs are curl up cozy!
As for pleasing all the wonderful Houzzers who see the hundreds of gazillion of photos by talented designers, decorators, and architects on Houzz, we know we will not please the masses. We design for our clients, their tastes, their needs, and their wants. Houzz is just a platform for posting our work hoping that some may enjoy our work and hire us for their next project. We also know that some will not., and that is perfectly okay too.
I was my own client and I designed for my tastes.
The fact that Becky Harris went through countless basements and thought my basement was appealing and wrote about it, pleased me greatly....
The fact you stopped by and voiced your opinion also pleases me too.
I may rethink those chairs the next time my college son brings home a crowd. Daybed? Good idea!

I love the warmth of the rooms, but cannot imagine putting carpet under workout equipment that will actually get used.
