Sorry to veer off again about the Real Housewives but much like last time, this is semi on topic as its about renovation.
I'm highly offended that I never received an invite to the McCord-Van Kempens House Party! Perhaps it was lost in the mail? Or maybe it because I am no one important and they don't know I exist? Nah, lets go with the lost in the mail thing.
Thankfully at least two other (much cooler than me) Brooklyn bloggers were invited and they shared their photos. Those two lucky bastards were Mr. Brownstoner and Cobble Hill Blog.
Without further ado, check out the goods:
First off, I'm going to say right now that these are some really bad photos. I mean, come on people. Turn off the flash at least!
Now if only the post office hadn't botched up my invitation delivery, I would have much better photos to share with you. And if by chance Alex & Simon just didn't invite me outright, they really did their home a disservice by allowing it to be photographed this way.
But moving on from this social injustice - I will say that it wasn't really my taste but I imagine they would equally hate what I've done to my house. I'm a little suprised they didn't pick more fashionable styles like super modern or mid century modern. All that said, I think their living room is least bothersome to me because it looks pulled together. Even if its not a final product I would want to live with, they clearly love it! They thought through their choices carefully and it has a lot of personality. But the rest of the rooms look a little bit thrown together without much thought. That bothers me a lot more. That doesn't seem to suit them either- or at least the "them" that I know from the television show.
Who else was watching? What did you think?
