I just want to know what most people prefer... Laid back, blase, or sharp, retro, or dark, urban, or oriental, etc... I prefer bright, laid back, modern, simple.

Be practial. Trends change. Get rid of excess furniture. Always remember less is more.

Its all about the comfort and the lived in look i like especially as i have children a sharp modern look just doesnt fit how we live.

I really love the moroccan decor and take inspiration from that alot.

I like a home that when I get off work, I don't feel the need to put down a towel before I sit on the couch. Modern is a great way to go, because there are so many options available, and they are still comfortable to be around.

I agree that less is more when it comes to comfort. But a lot of it depends on if you have children or not. Obviously the ideas of comfort are going to be different if you have no children, versus if you have a toddler in the house.

I like clean lines, warm tones and varied textures for my living space. I prefer function above all else - better bang for my buck. Uni-function is NOT cost effective.

For me, a comfortable home is one with simple furnishing, a sense of space and tranqulity. In other words, minimal clutter.

A home is who you are, how you live and what the story of your life is and who is in it! If i am less is more, free of clutter, love modern architecture because it speaks to you about who you are, then your comfort is reflected in how you design and decorate your home. Are you green? are you traditional, or are you modern and traditional? george 416-831-9735

Comfortable home... for me home is not just furniture or walls... it is something that is dear to my heart. I like antiques and my home feels like Paris appartment.... this is what I and my wife like. Antiques are timeless and can be different styles too.

Comfortable home is the home that you love to come back after hard work and where you know that somebody is waiting for you, loving you and care about you. And the style will come by itself and will fill your home with the wormth and happiness.

You do not have to break the bank to make you home a dream home. Look at the attached picture-this is my kitchen... Ikea kitchen, not custom made, but made by me with love for my wife. Does it look good?

I respect all of my customers and wish them to have the home of their dream-I can help to make it happend!
