    #3 for me, simply because it looks like the only one of the four that you can be comfortable in.

    #1: fifthy shades of beige. There’s just nothing there. Even when you want it to be ‘grand’ you can have some color.

    #2: The mirrors above the fireplace are ugly and the chairs are all over the place. But, if you fixe that mirror and place some decent furniture in there, it could be something….average.

    #3: Maybe not very ‘grand’ but I love it. It’s ‘warm’, it has a cool bar, warm seating by the fireplace, a nice pool/billiard (which ever term it is) – table, and a nice place to watch tv. Just good.

    #4: oh dear… It’s a square box with Ikea flooring. No windows coverings, a fake fire and furnitury that doesn’t look like they are connected to each other. Just McMansionish ugliness..

    So yes; #3 it is.

    EDIT: I completely agree with what Grrrowler wrote while I was writing my own post.

    Wow. This might be the only time I don’t go with the Florida mansion. I personally like #1 if you included some more masculine furnishings. #3 just has too much damn wood in it. If it was a hunting lodge in Montana I’d understand, but Ft. Lauderdale. I suppose I do like beige even though I bicker about it being overused so much. I think my favorite 2-story great/living room ever has to be the one in Robert Eustace’s house:

    4 is my favorite. If I could remodel it I would pick #1 because the bare bones of the room are the best out of the 4, but 4 suits me best as is.

      #3 is just way too cluttered for my taste… also, am I the only one that noticed the random lady standing in the middle of the room in pic 4? lol

        I noticed. It’s a little creepy.

    Hmm…none of the above? If I had to pick, I’d concur with Daniel on #1 with more masculine decor.

    Ok number one is elegant and really quite nice but I bet the better parties are thrown in number 3.

    I like the hugeness of #1. Time it is filled up with people and the people fill up with wine, no one will care about the pale shades.

    So funny. #2 is the only one that seems vaguely u and it’s rated the lowest. 1) the arched ceiling looks cheap compared to the extravagant wall treatments – the piano stage is geschmacklos 3) what is that, a public house? a corporate conference room? a pool hall? a media room? 4) probably Henredon furniture made in China…totally characterless. Not even worthy of an upscale hotel lobby.

      I agree #2 for me, after some minor changes.
      #1, i would take the rug and furniture away, and call it ballroom instead. And i still won’t probable like it.
      #3 looks like a hunting lodge or something.
      #4 lacks something.

    I would feel like an idiot sitting in any of them. They are completely illogical spaces, totally useless unless you have a crowd of people to fill them all the time.

    Champ D’or is hands down the best! Only problem I have with Champ D’or was that it should have been built on a huge lot in Old Preston Hollow instead of Denton Texas.
