I didn't really like either room either but wonder if they just showed up badly on TV -- They both seemed more like stage sets than places to live in. If I had to chose, I'd take the one with paper on the walls.

I wondered about the couple in yellow, and sympathized with the woman. I expect that any number of times he's said "Trust me, I know what I'm doing" and she found out later that he really didn't know what he was doing. (Been there, so that's my take on it.) This, of course, was compounded by tiredness and stress. I didn't see the whole thing, but didn't her husband want to go to bed leaving a bunch of stuff undone? They don't stand a chance of going further and they're going to spend however many years they stay together arguing about where the blame lies. Actually she'll argue, he'll just tune out. And so it goes.

P.S. Chocolate syrup on the walls? I missed that. I live in New York and so my first thought is "roaches." These homes are in Florida and Florida's no slouch in the bug department. Hildi should have to wear a warning sign.
