    I must say when I first saw the new room I was very surprised. But as I looked at it again and again my mind made me feel like Mikey and Dan were inviting us into there home for a sit down relaxed conversation. Then the thought came to me that this would be a great spot for a weekly sit down show. Not a class but a time we the Crochet Crowed would here from Mikey and Dan in a personal chat or they may have a guest all would enjoy. Just thoughts but always the love they give to us.

      I was thinking along those lines but to get Daniel to sit down is difficult. We did a live chat in 2011 and it was a lot of fun. I will run the idea by Daniel again.

        That would be great. But maybe no chips this time. 🙂

    I love the idea of single chairs in the living room, instead of the three-piece suite or somesuch! Lovely colors.

    Good day to you both,
    I have to say, you both are an absolute delight to me! You make me smile, when I do not feel like smiling.
    Your home, definitely matches your personalities! I love the in depth detail of the explanation on your remodeling.
    I’m just in awe of the colours! AWESOME!
    Waiting w/excitement to see the next room.
    Have a wonderful day,
    Sandi

    You and Dan have done a wonderful job. I love your color choices. I would love to use bold and bright colors but my husband isn’t fond.
    Keep up the good work. I really enjoy your YouTube tutorialso too, , you’ve been quite an inspiration for me.

    I love colour in homes. Don’t like neutral colours. Homes should be like life, colourful

    Love the vibrant color! We painted the walls in our home colors we love, and it makes us happier than living with boring neutrals. Our dining room is “crime scene red”, but it’s an open floor plan, so there’s not too much of it, and it is a very rich color. Lots of bright, sunshiney yellow, too…I’m not planning on moving any time soon, so the colors should be to MY taste, not based on resale value.

    I think it looks great….love the boldness of the color and I’m looking forward to the rest of the rooms as you share them with us. We’re in the midst of some remodeling and painted our dining room purple…..like you, I was a little concerned when my husband put the first swipe of paint on it but after it dried and was a deeper intensity, I love it!

    I love it! I wasn’t sure when I seen the first pic of the room before you added back in the furniture, but OMG, you have made this graphic designer’s jaw drop! So bold! In reading your blog, your FB posts, and watching your videos I would say you two have expressed yourselves! Would be wonderful to sit with a hot cup of tea looking out on the world in such a beautiful room.

    Mikey and Dan, I wish we lived in a world where you wouldn’t have to explain why you want fun colors in you own home. I think the room looks exciting and fun! It is edgy and happy and totally the two of you. Well done! You are both artists in your own rights and your dwelling should reflect this fact. You both inspire people to stretch their comfort zones. I have never been a neutral paint person. I had forest green in my bedroom with stenciling done in autumn colors of red, gold, orange and yellows. All my favorite colors. In a dinning room I painted (what I called…cause I can’t remember the name of the color) in creamcycle orange. It was happy and fun and not an overly orange color. It reminded me of yummy creamcycles of my youth. People need to accept you both for who you are. Wonderful, giving, loving, talented artistic people. Can’t wait to see more transformations in the future. I hope in my heart of hearts to be able to meet both of you some day. Debbie

    Amazing! What a difference a little color can make. Once my twins get out of the destructive ages, I plan to redo my own living room. While I doubt hubby will go for anything this bold (and I have gorgeous woodwork I refuse to paint), I am hoping for a nice splash of color. Good job, guys!

    I absolutely LOVE those little peekaboos between your livingroom and foyer! I’m totally going to steal that concept when we a a front door.

    And I’m certain Dan has a fab idea for color in the foyer as well?

    A very nice room and space to start with transformed into “WOW”! Love how the new color makes your art work and furniture just “pop”! Mikey you and Dan could go professional in interior design! I sure wish I had an eye for color like that – please tell Dan nice job! Like the comment above, I am Impressed! Can’t wait to see the other rooms! Thanks for sharing.

    Marvelous darlings, simply marvelous! Can’t wait to see more. (As a side note: I am a remodeling contractor here in San Antonio, TX and I use B.M. Aura paint almost exclusively. Rarely when a client doesn’t want to spend the extra bucks and I use an alternative paint the results are never to the quality and always takes more paint and my time. Great job guys keep it up!

    Looks great. Well done. We too love color and personally I think having it colorful shows off your personality and makes it feel more homey 🙂

    Love love love the color combinations! I say make your house YOURS and don’t worry about what other people say. You guys are the ones that live there and your home should be your castle.

    It looks awesome guys! I am excited to see what you do with the rest of the house. 2013 had found me coming out of my neutral shell and using bold, fun and stimulating colours! I’d love to have you both down for dinner some time in the new year!
