Based on what I've been able to gather from interior design tastes around here, I suspect that these rooms do not look uncomfortable enough to be considered appealing.

i'd be uncomfortable if any of those were mine.



remove all of the litter from picture #1, and we could be on to something.

Almost all American houses these days have a TV hanging right above the fire place or high level, which makes viewing very uncomfortable.

Given the same treatment, #4 has potential, too.

gasoline and a match?

Dragon, I have both of my tv's hung at 40" from center to floor. I always found looking up at the TV to be very uncomfortable.

This is a satire thread, right?

Actually, a more classical look is much more to my taste than some of the more modern stuff that gets the love around here (i.e. in Foo's other thread), but this is not where I would start.

Looking up is supposed to put a strain on your eyes and neck. Monitors, screens are much easier to view if you look slightly down.
