  • As one of the homeowners above, and because I was not able to see the other homes on the tour, it was nice to see how the different style of homes were decorated. My only feeling on these pictures is that they do not do the houses and their decorations much justice. A lot has to do with the lighting on the day the pictures were chosen and maybe a brighter looking day would have been better. Also, having cars removed from the picture would also be better. Just some thoughts on the matter.
