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.

    The KC place looked mostly just Con. Can we get a judgment, :foo: ?

    It's also amusing that in NYC, not having a doorman is cause for suspicion.

    ConTrad.

    Sadly, in my neighborhood, too.

    I'd ban her from the White House, too.

    The camera on that walk through was making me dizzy. Aside from the one room with pop art (warhol's) I would say that house is traditional. The main living room looked like almost entirely antiques with exception to the upholstery.

    I didnt like the huge cream carpet with traditional rugs laid over it.

    This reminds me of a front room I've recently seen.

    It's ashame that none of these houses have a library and instead they have to store their books in their living room floor, in their serving tray and under a box.

    It might be an expression of their honest living.

    It would be a great use of their home equity loans.

    You're kidding right? A library?

    Bookcases would be a good start.

    However, i they only 'read' artsy display books, a bookcase or a library would look empty and weird. I guess since these books are made for display, having them lying around is the more 'honest' option...

    A couple of readable books near a spot for reading wouldn't look out of place either, I know several people who (myself including) read multiple books at the same time.

    Of course I'm kidding. It looks to me like it's decorated for the photo.

    I don't really mind that room, it certainly is not the worst offender in the world of contemporary interiors.

    Only one or two of those are pure Con Trad, notably the one below. The rest are just living rooms of people who live in old homes with newer furniture. A pre-war home can't really be very Con Trad, because the furniture that occupies it can excuse its offensive mediocrity through its contextual deferment.

    agreed... the source I pulled these from identified the rooms as modern/vintage

    The sideways one looks more or less straight trad to me, am I missing something?

    Most of those aren't ConTrad at all and some are not half bad.

    This is the point and laugh thread, get that shit out'a here.
