I loved both the office and nursery segments (which I wondered about, but her baby bump had become very apparaent so it isn't just for theory's sake). Sarah's color sense -- which seemed a bit off the wall when she was talking about it, was absolutely spot on in the execution. All that red furniture in the office was simply gorgous.
Although they haven't really discussed a plan for the whole house, the rooms they've already done are very cohesive, color and size-wise. No huge bedrooms, no jarringly different color schemes. I'm reallly looking forward to the rest of the series.
I was surprised that Sarah didn't design that basement guest room with A) An eggress window which would be required in the US and B) a separate door into the bathroom, which, while it may be for a planned family room or something down there, would be nicer if a guest didn't have to go trekking through the basement to get to it at night.
I think there are some great tips about keeping things neutral or if you have an accent wall (like wallpaper) make it a small area that can easily be changed. Also, those cheap plates in the shadow boxes were outstanding -- I was thinking the boxes would just be big enough for the plate and maybe an inch around. Instead they gave them huge mats that made them stand out and look incredible.
ETS: I never started a thread in the 10 years or so I've been posting ... but when I reached fanatic (and considering how long that took ...) I felt impowered and this is my third start-up this month).
