    Roaring fire speaks both cozy and holidays.

    Cool Re: Log in or register to vote for the Nov/Dec 2012 cover of This Old House magazine

    Not happy with any of them, the fireplace should have been made part of the kitchen.

    I worked in a school system for two summers cleaning classrooms. The green in this kitchen is the same color. I like the layout but the color has got to go.

    All I see in A is the dining set-
    B- I think the image has good depth,
    a bit cramped, but in realtor speak, cozy
    is another word for cramped. C- I focus on the range.
    D- 1/4 of the image is taken up by a wall
    grounding the text. All in all, a difficult
    shot to work with, none of them seem "Cozy".

    Cover "D" shows the best view of the ceiling lines and upper cabinets. I do agree with an earlier comment that the fireplace should be in the kitchen.

    D and A are the best, but I agree with the comments on D. Looks good!

    None of them are very appealing but, overall, Cover B has more warmth from the wood tones in the island, stools, and flooring. It looks like an area people would actually congregate in while visiting. It also seems to show more of the vaulted ceiling. The green tones from the painted cabinets and counter tops in the other covers are cold, especially when used with the stainless steel stove and vent hood. The green does not work with the flooring. The fireplace in Covers A and D looks out of place. Based on the other comments I'm not the only one who thinks you could've done better for a holiday cover.
