The accessories are so forced and not all personal. Things like that should evolve ofer time.

It's nice, but looks a bit too much like a model home tastefully styled by a designer.

I agree that a space carefully curated over time is gorgeous, however these newlyweds likely haven't had the benefit of the time necessary to do that. I like the fresh and energetic aesthetic. It is a great reflection of where they are in their lives.

Mostly presented pictures are designed for CONVERSATION in mind not living. Who is seating for face to face conversation every evening?
Design your living room only for your family, not for entertaining, guests…because you/family must be comfortable at least 350 days a year. If LR is small, more likely the house is small and you have to have it fully functional with minimum furniture, for example sofa, a small ottoman, book case which can be used for books, décor, and small TV if you have no other appropriate space on wall, side table or coffee table 2 tire a must, to keep games, magazines on bottom shelf and use top (presented tables are waste), maybe for PC or laptop desk height table if you don’t have spare room, or want see sites your kids/teens surf, that’s all. In such room you can read, browse through magazines, surf on Internet, watch TV, do yoga, and if you need extra seats for guests, not a big deal, you can bring in dining chairs in such occasion.
Love seat is not an option, such a waste of space. Family of 3 need full size sofa. With 1 guest love seat also tight (mouth to mouth conversation), while on sofa you keep distance. Two armchairs actually cover the same area as sofa due to space between two. Did you notice that many smaller pieces in the room look more crowded than 1 bigger piece? No-no for sofa without back, while room can look less stuffed it’s not comfortable therefore a useless piece you can’t afford to have.
Built in shelving also not a good idea, needs change, so small space should be very flexible for different arrangement.

Live in a very warm climate - so thankfully don't have to do most of this! Except repainting and checking caulking/seals. Just bought a new place on a slab and the weep holes need to be re-drilled and it has no insulation but will be installing it.

Great ideas for using succulents. They're great for our environment here in Orange County. Here's a vertical succulent wall the homeowners put up on one of our latest projects. They are assorted varieties, but the customers also had pots of jade throughout the yard.

I would love to have a succulent wall planter on the side of my garage, but have some concerns about dampness between the planter and wall that might cause mildew or even deterioration of the wall surface. What is your experience with this??
