Outdoor shoes in doors was done because of ongoing renovations. I believe the USA might do it but in Canada unless it's something like workers carrying appliances in or out of the house it's definitely not normal to wear outdoor shoes inside and if you do that as a kid your parents will probably remind you to not get snow, mud or dirt on the floor.

Though it is normal to wear outdoor shoes at school. With the exception maybe of Kindergarten and Elementary School(ages 4-12)

I know it might have been said so many times, but I love it when Yvonne comes on camera, her presence is great. I would love more content like that. 😄

For door, other than the whole gold colouring, what's so crazy about it.

If it's about the whole indent thing,

Yeah that "indent" thing that is literally everywhere in every NA house of every age. Seriously it looks so darn old-fashioned, outdated and fake. Yes there are sidings here too, but they are flat and clean, as most surfaces tend to be. Like in the homes of Sarah and Riley, the so called "hipsters" and design people.

The "siding" is called wainscoting and it's actually extremely fashionable in newer/upscale homes right now.

I can't grasp how sth looking so old-fashioned can be so popular when there are options like this:

But where would we be without pretentious Europeans passing judgment on how gauche the decor in our massive North American houses is as they huddle in their little flats? 😜 Sorry, can't hear you over the sound of all my square footage! (And yes, we still use square footage as a measurement, seethe about it. 😘

Well, quantity over quality, that seems to be a leitmotif over there.. we prefer to have it the other way round, with properly built houses, aka not out of wood and cardboard.

And among all the bad units, square feet ranks among the worst.

I know there are lots of people monitoring their homes through cctv.

Making sure elderly parents are okay and not fallen down in the toilet, babies sleeping soundly in another room, pets not destorying the place, domestic helper not abusing toddlers, there's a huge market for that. Not sure if you're aware.

So let me get this straight, you want to put a camera that's pointing towards the loo? Great idea! How about walking there and knocking in case you haven't heard in a while from grandma? For babies there are literally babyphones as a temporary monitoring solution - great fun when they eventually grow up and you have a camera in a teenagers room.

And if you have to suspect your domestic helper of doing such things it's probably time to get a new one. In any case have I never experienced any occassion where in-house CCTV would've made a significant difference.

You don't see the use in having internal SECURITY cameras in a house full of expensive tech in case someone breaks in? Really?

I hope you don't fool yourself and think that having cameras on burglars that already entered the house helps in any way.. Monitoring outsides and the perimeter makes sense for these issues.

Getting those kitty stickers off the wall after a few years sounds a lot like "famous last words" - therefore, might I suggest an alternative solution for the kids' rooms. Yvonne designed a series of interior spaces for LMG that included some backlighting, and I was thinking something similar could be done here.

 

I propose the LMG workshop laser cut moderately-sized pieces of wood into mural cutouts, which can be attached to the wall on pegboard mounts. These pieces can be modular, to act as physical storytelling, and Yvonne could detail them using UV paint... in turn, they would be visible in the daytime whilst illuminate at night. If you ever moved again you could, then, simply take them with you.

If you think this is IKEA you have literally no clue. And it just further stresses my point that the only interface point with modern interior design people in NA have is IKEA, a European company. What you associate with Ikea has nothing to do with the brand per se - it's simply modern interior design.

 

Why would someone with money want to live in rooms that look like a cheap knock-off castle?

No its not everywhere in North America, plain drywall, or drywall with baseboard is much more common, wainscoating siding is mostly a thing in expensive high end houses. That chandelier is kinda tacky, though I don't see what is weird with the door knobs.

Design preference is subjective, the first image looks too cold and boring, the second one is better but they both look like a house most people wouldn't really live in.

Its because people in North America actually own their houses, making homes from brick or cement would be ridiculously expensive.

Why would I spend lots of money to achieve a result which looks indistinguishable from what they sell at the place people go for cheap college dorm knick-knacks? To pat myself on the back that my home has "modern interior design" and looks exactly the same as everyone else with correct and up to date taste?

 

When you have a house, you can decorate it however you want, and if you think anybody would even give a shit you can post a video of it on the internet and bask in the approval of everybody else living in a soulless hipster douche temple to the minimalist ideal. Until then, your sneering comments about matters of subjective personal taste in a home you don't live in just make you look like a smug jerk.

My house is made of brick, thanks very much. However, if I lived in a different part of the country, that could actually be a detriment to its durability. Europeans who think an hour's drive is a long journey typically have no concept of how vast North America is, and make silly generalizations. Depending on region buildings in NA have to withstand things they don't dream of in Europe. But people in European cities who live in tottering many-times-repurposed relics think their buildings are durable because they're too "historic" to be torn down and there's no room to build anything new.

Honestly to me those feel kind of creepy and fake. Though I also have spent my whole life with a gas stove, so those styles of oven and stove top feel wrong to me. There's also that Brick and stone both age better, and I think honestly look better than aluminum siding or cement. While I can appreciate the idea of minimalism, if you have a decent quantity of quality stuff or even if you don't a house that's set up in a way that feels lived in is nice in my mind. Having there be some character and nice more natural coloured flooring is good.

So having additional evidence of anything or everything that is damaged or stolen for a police report or insurance claim doesn't help in any way. Got it.

You must be a real estate agent.  

 

This is an old timey classic, not popular with anyone under 50 at this point.  If you want to add to that fashion you can wallpaper the top part too.  Bleh. 

 

Clean lines are all the rage here in Canada these days. I could do without the asymmetry but it's a small consolation.  You don't have to be a minimalist though, a white background allows for seasonal colour changes with the decor and the walls can hold a multitude of pictures or art of all sizes.

 

Home is what you make it, no matter what continent, just do you!

1. Camera point at entrance/walkways, not inside loo you dense. 

2. You can always dismantle the camera when they are teenagers. what are you talking about?
3. There are many cases of domestic helper abuse, where have you been all your life? Deterrence is good.

 

Let me give you scenario and let me know what you'll do. I always do check in with my elderly parent every morning when I am at work and they just wake up. So if one day they did not reply you, what are you going to do? Rush home? Or simply check the CCTVs remotely?

Well it just doesn‘t look like that at all, it just shows how ignorant you are. Calling this indistinguishable from Ikea is just next level ignorant. Calling it „hipster douche“ even further proves my point.

Ah, ye old fairytale about the durable wood and cardboard houses.

And nobody is talking about brick, but reinforced concrete. Withstands basically everything. Yes is more expensive to build, but do it properly and keep it for long. And such houses are also commonly owned.

Dunno. Somewhere where there are not that many bad people? Where do you live that such horrible things are so common? Again I don‘t want to have any people in my home I have the urge to regularly check/control.

Call them? If they don‘t pick up, go home to check on them. What do you do if they are in an area that is not covered by CCTV?

This is not an good argument. By the way even we dont have to pay Rent we must repair stuff to who is also not cheap to.

Sorry you should visit my City called Vienna (yes the original one...) and I show you the Building who shoot out of the Ground like Mushrooms. Depend on the Country here in my after WW2 there where not much Building left who could be life in. And life in an historic Building is a pain!

Who even can afford an "domestic helper" ? I guess Linus is on a good way to the Top 10.000 in Canada.

But the rest of the People (I guess) never think about a "domestic helper".

What People in my Country do simply call the Police or Medic for an check. If nobody replay the open the Door and see if something happen.

Bro, those are like pretty much the only people who can afford homes in America (and probably Canada) so yes when they say it's popular and you say only old people like it....well duh! Walk in showers and baths are popular too lol.
