....they ran a repeat of Cobi's house. Are they out of segments already or did they suddenly realize every house they're showing looks the same!!!

I agree with everything you said, especiallywith the TV. If there is one in a room it will be tucked behind some obscure cabinet where viewing it is impossible from the sofa. Maybe these people have such busy glamorous lives that TV watching is not a daily routine.
With regards to age and taste, judging from all of the showers that I have attended the young couples all have very contemporary tastes. I'm seeing the same type of things over and over again on the registry lists and now showers have become boring as well.

Don't you think, though, that the "older" folks - 40+ -tend to have a little more disposable income for decorating? Doesn't it seem that the advertising in the decor magazines tends more towards the traditional than the featured homes? I have scoured my recollection of all the homes I have visited "in real life" and I think that most of those have been decorated in a more traditional style.

Quit picking on roosters! I have two beautiful Portugese roosters on the top of my cupboard which I LOVE. In fact, Montrealers, one of them is identical to a rooster painted on the building next to Schwartz's. I look at that rooster and think "lean, thick cut, extra mustard". Yum.

You've got Chic shabby cottage style which is all white sofas and nice antique wooden tables, then you used to have country which was nothing but roosters, but now country seems to be cottage?
Then traditional used to be balloon curtains, but who has balloon curtains anymore? I know my mil does, but she, poor her, still has brown and orange sofas, not wrapped in plastic mind you, but personally I have thought of wrapping my own darn couches in plastic. The only way I can maintain my shappy chic cottage look. Boohoo. Can I change my mind now?

That's called a beautiful home that real people with nice fuzzy wuzzy bathrobes and slippers, sipping hot chocolate curl up and live in!!!!

...they should divide the show in 3 equal parts. Traditional, Contemporary, and Country, and feature new and upcoming design ideas and inspiration for all 3.
