Huntsman, it's awful. I don't really speak in the language of architecture/design, my take is that the individual design elements are lame on their own, and looking at the picture as whole, it's an incohesive hodgepodge. There's no thought put into the design.
-There are columns and an arch in the entry to the dining room!
-Wall color is bad and the contrasting crown molding looks ridiculous.
-I dont think crown molding belongs on any ceiling lower than 9 feet, but that's a personal quirk.
-The shape of the balcony, what is that?
-That triangular skylight makes no sense above the rounded staircase and balcony.
-Stairs are in a bad spot in the floorplan. I know they're trying to create a 'grand staircase' look, but that's just not working with a 4 foot wide staircase.
-The lighting fixtures are bad. The curtains are bad. The picture framing is bad. The rugs are bad.
It's just the prototypical McMansion.
