Looks dull & dead like the cemetery you tried to incorporate in. Drabby. But I guess that's the Paris look.

The TV is way too low.

The before was very nice already, just upgrade the old kitchen and replace the old floor, nothing else need to be changed!

The before was nicer. More minimalist and clean with uncomplicated lines. The makeover reminds me of a modern museum.

I wish I could live in front of a cemetery! Best neighbors ever! No loud noises, no parties, no mess, open view forever, a lot of green and fresh air, a lot of jokes about it. I was born on Halloween, maybe I'm to quirky.

As an interior designer I can tell.. Firstly, let's ignore that TV is waaay too low(!!). Secondly, when you're sitting in the living room you have to look at the kitchen instead of looking at the lovely window with the view(WHY??) Lastly, TV faces the window..that means that reflects all the sun light during the day (really ANNOYING).. Watching TV in this house will be really a struggle..

We underestimate the power of our surroundings

i like it but i think it would look much nicer with different curtains, it looks a bit too much
Vinny Verma (1 year ago)
it was good before as well, what's the point of the entire makeover here?

Love everything, except the Chanel bear thingy and the striped curtains - really hate those. The TV is just too low. The gorgeous ombre spiral staircase is the focal point for me.

Designers be like "we reoriented the sofa". Ok so you moved my sofa and how much is that going to cost me?
Bouutique Ms (1 year ago)
Ok. So the cemetery is now art apparently.

I like the look of the space but I feel like the homeowner is a pretty odious client. the designer kept sucking up to her and I feel like that's built into their relationship
Whiskers McGee (1 year ago)
Anyone else slightly annoyed when these designers describe a home like this as "awful", "horrible", "dated" etc . this one was kind nice..nicer than mine..
Anna Gray (1 year ago)
Would never get a home with a view to the cemetery. I prefer to look at the alive. Otherwise, a very pretty home!

I wanna see the second floor!!! bummer.
Aeri Heirsling (1 year ago)
The apt is okay, but she makes such a big production about it.
Noelle Candice (2 years ago)
The stairs are lovely
San Diego Barbie (23 days ago)
Noelle Candice yes I love the stairs

I know this is an old video, but I enjoy the space. Would've liked to see more...bedrooms, bath, etc. I'm surprised at the negativity in the comments. How wonderful that people invite us into their homes to share what is essentially, themselves.
JP Christoff (2 years ago)
It's almost all cheap and tacky, with just a hint of snob
Abisha Akmal (1 year ago)
yea! i feel like they make a wrong statement, with a little effort, the original condition can really make a beautiful Scandinavian style
Mona Moore (2 years ago)
genius designer! wow so perfect
Kate Lim (2 years ago)
Guess the reason many didn't like this is because it's the reflection of the homeowner; lol. Anyway I think Tommy did a good job, the kitchen is expanded so much it looks spacious now. He cleaned up the previous space and added personality into it, I like the stairs and the library vibe. The use of furniture and more monotone colors also helps make the space look less cluttered since it's a small space. :)
Hanin Alyahya (2 years ago)
I loved everything, except for the curtains.
Eztliz (2 years ago)
Ok, so it looks nicer, but for a very expensive makeover, she went from a white kitchen... to a white kitchen. Also sorry, but putting the tv in the island wouldn't make me able to ignore the fact that I'm staring at a kitchen. Also having to tell the story of your ridiculously overpriced collectors item screams insecurity.
Bunny Mad (2 years ago)
Very clever ideas. Love it.
Tylenol Pain Relieved (2 years ago)
I love the the condo. She has a really nice view. But i don't like what he did with the space. He could have done so much more.

i really like the living room table and the little doll
Ethel Patnaude (3 years ago)
That mouse thing on the counter, yuk, same for the rug under the table. The curtains on the windows remind me of beatle juice LOL sorry

I appreciate the design of this space much more that the overdone "cloud white" boxes that are usually featured on this page. Her apartment definitely had a point of view, and it was well executed, IMO. I simply cannot believe that people are saying that the before was better…..ummmm, no!
Mat H (3 years ago)
something that reflects the woman..... 20 years out of date and crumbling.... sounds like she found her match :-)
AS 7TR (3 years ago)
I quite like the result, but I can tell you, as an Interior Designer, I know for sure that TV inside that island are too low. After awhile, it wont be comfortable watching that television sitting in that sofa when you feel the strain on your neck!... It will be different if that living room have "japanese sitting style" - which is sit on the floor, that tv will be the perfect high...

Living infront of a cemetery with a house only with black, white and gray, it made me feel scared. Hahahah
AmazonsRuletheWorld (3 years ago)
I'm not a fan of that creepy old cemetery either. I'd be depressed if I had to see that every day. Bad mojo.
chavella minerva (3 years ago)
The TV should not be there imo. I would never be able to watch comfortably by looking down all the time. Anyway, if I were given this house for free, I'd put it directly to market again or rent it or whatever really, the reason? Only because of that cemetery!
chavella minerva (3 years ago)
Really? I didn't know about that. My only reason is because I'm too scared of the view of cemetery. :D
Jiliane Morales (3 years ago)
Cemetery=bad feng shui
TheCurrentNatural (3 years ago)
The homeowner's comments were so negative about the other space. The previous owner took pride in their space.. I didn't find her new space to be overwhelming so great!
F M (3 years ago)
white fridge and cream cupboards?
Charlotte Lai (3 years ago)
you don't need big space to look stylish. This is just perfect for a solo performance.

Oh my I have been in search for that chanel doll for months now I redecorated my daughters room in black and white aliver and gold and of course chanel
Matthew McCrory (3 years ago)
Have to agree with the others saying it looked better before. So many of my least favourite design details here - leopard print, glass/Perspex tables, chintzy miniature chandeliers, gold particularly oversized gold frames and mirrors. The white, circular, convex mirror in the original design was absolutely stunning and I'm genuinely sad to see it was removed, especially given what it was replaced with.
Ashley Case (3 years ago)
So nice
linkee57 (3 years ago)
I agree  with nadiainthesky , the space was better before. Some elements I really understand ( kitchen) but the living room needs pops of vibrant color .. unless this video does not do justice to the room. I love the staircase and sofa.
nadiainthesky (3 years ago)
I actually preferred it before. It was more simplistically modern and classic, the only real thing that needed updating was the floors / kitchen hardware. 
margaux (1 year ago)
nadiainthesky me too.

Im a fan of Tommy from the Sarah shows that were on HGTV.  It was nice to see his work again.  Great condo.
I, Adaora (3 years ago)
Stunning! The bookcase near the staircase is so inspired! And the staircase paint job is wonderful. He always does such a great job in spaces. I remember watching him with Sarah Richardson on HGTV. Good for him! 
Elvira Elfje (3 years ago)
Very beautiful! Plus, you have an amazing view! :D
Krystal O'Brien (3 years ago)
Love how it turned out! Stairs are amazing. Tell me the tv lifts up or something though.......... 
nadiainthesky (3 years ago)
yeah, the tv placement is super weird!
