1. Who was your favorite entry and why?

East #11 - Victor & Soeun's Romantic Loft. Romantic's not the first word that comes to mind, but it's a heck of a strong design statement, executed with discipline. And, apparently, with an eye on the bottom line. A fun floorplan and thoughtful artistic details seal the deal.

What's your next improvement?

Art. I've made one piece since I moved in (collage, framed in the small hallway) and I want to get back into it - working as a designer it's nice to be creative for the sake of creativity once in a while. I'm using the blank canvasses now as a compositional element, which I think works pretty well, but I do intend to paint and commission my artist friends as well. On the other hand, I'm the type that's inspired by a blank sheet of paper, so maybe some will remain unadorned.
