    I know it sounds cliche, but my kitchen needs the most help. The poor dear is stuck in "model home hell." I relate it to being attacked by doilies and wax fruit. It's downright unappetizing. I crave modern simplicity without fuss, flourish or fruited tile!

    What a fantastic giveaway! Well, let's see… I suppose the obvious choice at the moment would be to nominate my kitchen, which has yet to be repaired since my bathroom pipe leaked through the ceiling last week. However, since that's hardly a design challenge (more like carpentry disaster), I'd have to vote on my dining room. It's been almost two years since we moved in and I've yet to buy a chandelier, dining room chairs, window treatments, or any wall decor. I have a good idea of what I want, but so many questions re: color, fabrics, how to make the adjoining kitchen and living room transition seamlessly.

    Oh, and since I've just written a book on my woe-is-me situation, I'll now sign off so that others can participate. Here's my email;)

    OH MY GOODNESS!! We just bought our first house and I am in the process of designing the whole house!! I think the room that needs the most TLC would be the kitchen! I LOVE TO COOK and with being connected to the family room, I want it to flow with the decor! I love the idea of this! It make coordinating looks a lot easier!

    Thanks for the help!

    I need a full home makeover because we are moving in October from Atlanta to Baltimore and may end up having to renovate the bathroom and kitchen. I am in dire need of a few new ideas to keep my home bright and vibrant through that winter months because I work from home. (I don't want to get depressed because ATL is sunny year round).

    The kitchen! Oh, the kitchen. The husband and I live in a "pre-war" NYC building, built in 1928. Original cabinets, flooring and a range installed in the 50's are crying for replacement. Mini updates have been done throughout the years, mainly to rectify a sudden or pending disaster, but the time has come to gut the room and begin anew.

    Our kitchen is in desperate need of some loving! The wall color was supposed to be sage green but is oh so much more sad, hospital green. When we painted the cabinets, we used the wrong type of white paint and now it is chiping terribly. The trim is all cream colored which drives me bananas against the white. Oh dear do we need some help!

    My kitchen. Built in 1974, never updated, brown. And not the pretty brown. And it's really not very functional. Although, my vent hood does explain how to properly cook weiners. When we bought the house 4 years ago, it was priority one. Then everything else fell apart and it hit the bottom of the list. Some day…

    We're in a rental, so we can't do much about our embarrassing basement. It's unfinished, but since the footprint of our house is so small (500 sq ft upstairs), we use it all.


    Our office is in the creepy unfinished part. So is my "studio", our "garage", our "laundry room" and our "work out room". We just need to move.

    Love this design in a bag! If I were a homeowner, I'd TOTALLY need a million of these.
