All the rooms are the same grey. Agents take shitty pictures here and don't compensate for the differences in light.

No shit. Again, these pics don't even come close to representing this place. It was ballsy of this guy do the entire building this way as many people will walk in and and reject it outright. Particularly ballsy to do the trim in a darker grey - most would do white against the grey walls. Sweet guy as well. One thing I would change is the outlet plates. I would have them painted the same colour as the walls or fabricate a grey steel.

All the same shade, but for one room that he painted off-white. It looks tepid by comparison. What you guys are missing is that while this is a bold choice it is also a neutral colour in that almost every type of furniture works here - post modern, no problem; rococo, you bet; asian primitive, why not? Scale would be an issue for some, but I have big furniture and big art and would love to use this place as a background. The stove weighs 1200 lbs and was craned in. Figured you'd appreciate that alone.

I did make a low-ball offer. Rejected. Don't blame him, I would hold out for asking.

I actually might use some ideas from gdl or matt's kitchens, and someone might use something from mine, or we might give each other suggestions, or point out that a paint job makes the home look like a bus depot. But what do you do with a messy dorm room, or a dull 1 bedroom that doesn't have a single concealed belonging and all ikea furniture? What does posting something like that do aside from affirming the real life existence and laziness of the poster?
My wife snagged the dark grey colour and is going to lacquer some teak bedside tables that I hate and wanted to pitch so it was inspiring if nothing else. lefty
