2012 HGTV Dream Home
I give the actual structure 5 stars. I give the furnishings 2 stars. so over all it gets about 3 stars.
The building and site is perfect. I love most of it. But I really don't like the furnishings. First off I HATE BLUE. and there is just too much of it MELDED into this structure to change it out. The tile in the kitchen is bad, but the small glass tile in the master bath is horrible, too busy. The first thing I would get rid of, is the blue thing over the fire place for a landscape of UTAH. too much clutter and mix of styles for me. Gut it and I would love it.
2012 Dream Home vs. Past Years' Prizes
The over all prize package is great. The cash alone makes it worth it. but the home package is over priced with the furnishings in it. Not worth the taxes for the cost of the horrible furnishings. But the homes are priced out of most peoples' income range. No one can afford to keep it.
What Do You Think of the Setting?
I have been to Midway several times on vacation. I love the setting. it is one of the best. This is one of very best of all of them.
What Do You Think of the Design?
The over all design is great, some changes I would make: More closet space, make room for King Size beds, put in more wood cabinets to go with the stone work, and change the changing room back to a bedroom. Furnishings don't fit the style home. Modern, Asian, oriental jumbled with BLUE.
What Do You Think of the Extra Prizes?
Money is fantastic, car is ok, so it is a big plus.
