I guess I am missing something in all these designs. I find there is no excitement in any of the displayed 24 rooms presented from all this countries. Where is the color, where is the focal point, where is the movement, where is the sparkle, where is the WOW?

Wow! Lovely homes, all of them! Calm, cozy, serene, and comfortable. I especially love the New Zealand home!

I'm surprised that people must comment that they don't like it. I think Scandinavian style has wonderful elements-light streaming in, lots of greenery, clean white linens, colorful cookware, light floors. Very peaceful when you can control the clutter. I enjoyed seeing the examples although I agree the cowhide was jarring and I'm from Texas !
