Revgalblogpal Friday Five: HGTV Edition


Greetings all!

As some of you may know I am in the midst of my first home purchase. It is a new-build and so some of the fun was picking out upgrades and major decor items to my taste rather than walking into a previously owned home that needed to be upgraded room by room (pink and teal tiles in the bathroom, anyone?). As much as decorating is not my thing, I did try to embrace the moment because just how many times do you get to have a do-over on kitchen cabinets/floors/countertops?

And so, my questions to you this fine Friday involve your home past, present or future...

1) If you could, what room in the place you are currently living would you redo first?

2) What is the most hideous feature/color/decor item you have ever seen in a home?

3) What feature do you most covet? Do you have it? If not, is it within reach?

4) Your kitchen - love it or hate it? Why?

5) Here is $10,000 and you HAVE to spend it on the place you are living now. What do you do?


BONUS: Why do you think there was such a surplus of ugly bathroom tile colors showcased in all homes built from the 1950's right through the early 80's?
