1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I like the contemporary decor. However, the pieces would look better with color on the walls. As the room stands now, the objects are floating out in space, and the shadows behind some of the objects are rather harsh.

    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.

    I love the sleek modern look too but toddlers tend to make quick work of all white, floating, expensive stuff. [​IMG]

    Are your orange Bird chairs comfy for lounging? I have seen them at Luminaire but never tried one out.

    I have plenty of socks.

    With the all white and semi-sparse amount of stuff it looks like an upscale squatter is living there.

    I disagree, it looks very clean and uncluttered. Very nice Matt.

    I disagree [​IMG]

    I think there's a fine line between being clean/uncluttered and being 'awkwardly' bare. There is a better way to take advantage of/accentuate open space and I am not seeing it here at all. I like some of the furniture, but I'm not really a fan of the overall presentation. Looks like you have a great sized place by San Francisco standards though......that's something to be very proud of.

    I've always said that what's hanging on your walls is a reflection of your inner-soul. Matt's are empty. [​IMG]

    Just kidding, matt, but you can expect a lot more friendly prodding coming before I catch-up to you. [​IMG]
