not sure if serious...(except I am absolutely sure you are completely serious)

+1 on white walls and moving the shelves under the TV (you're never going to put anything in front of the TV by nature...so why not recapture that space with the shelving and free up some unrestricted wall space).

As much as it pains me to say it...I have agreed to help someone paint a place they are moving into (in exchange for a favor I really needed) and they are going to be removing every bit of white and replacing it with what I imagine would be similar colors to this place ffffuuuu.gif

Checked out the outside of this place yesterday, hoping to arrange a viewing of it soon. http://www.realtor.ca/propertyDetails.aspx?propertyId=10912175&PidKey=2047127087

Backstory: i'm 21, just graduated university, parents have sold family house + buyer is tearing down and has agreed to let us take any fixtures/cabinets/anything we want. we don't have to move out til march 2012 so we've got time. parents are moving to boring area of town and have agreed to help out myself and my two brothers get a place by giving us each $100k. Idea is to buy a starter place and fix er up with all the nice parts from our current kitchen and washrooms, and maybe sell in 3 or so years.

This place looks good already but also has lots of room for improvement (from the pics), and is in a location i really like.

I feel like adding/subtracting something is in order, I just don't know what -- or maybe I'm simply neurotic and feel the need to constantly re-arrange my environment. I'm in my mid-twenties, so this is my first non-rented space and also my first attempt at decorating.

I like it, but yes paiting the walls white should make it better.

This would make me really sad to know if the buyer of my family house was just going to bulldoze it.....

Unless it is a part of architectural history, why should anyone give a shit?  If the family liked it enough they wouldn't be selling it.

I see where you're coming from. I wouldn't give a rats ass if I saw a regular house being torn down unless it was historic in some nature. I was mainly commenting with the mindset oif I were in that situation and my parents sold our house to be torn down. My family house is a dime-a-dozen mid 80's 3 bedroom. Moved into it brand new when I was 3 so I've lived there pretty much my entire life. Still, if I saw someone bulldozing it into the ground, I'd be pretty sad. All the memories and good times growing up. Who knows though, maybe I'm the only one sentimental about that kinda thing....

That pretty much sums up the IKEA design philosophy.
