well, floating is the whole overriding concept of the place. You can't tell from the pictures I posted, but almost all of the built in cabinetry and shelving floats off of the wall, or at least in cantilevered. I really dislike colored walls, although we do have one that is bright yellow behind the Murphy Bed in our TV room. Anyway, my belief is that warmth comes from people and not from colored walls or wood paneling. I do like brick but there was none to be found in our building. I will try to take more, and better, pics later. As far as the bedroom, we are waiting for a new rug that should be here within a day or two, so I will hold off until then.
