Might be 4 million Gloria, but that's probably less than a year's wages to the likes of him. I'm d**d sure mine cost a lot more than that in relative terms - and I bet yours did too.

Me, my first thought was it looked like something out of Footballers' Wives. Then I realised why.

Its not all to my taste no,but I would imagine in a property of that age it is not easy to furnish without it looking like you are living in Towneley Hall.
I would say the dining room may have been done a little more tastefully but I think the rest of the house apart from perhaps the black leather look in the lounge is pretty well done and I could certainly live with it.I think the kitchen design is fantastic.
But at the end of the day it is their taste and it would be a strange World if we all liked the same things

I don't like all the yellowy gold, love the kitchen, but think the rest of the house is seriously over the top. I'd sooner live in Townley, or perhaps Extwistle---could you imagine that done up like that ??????

Can anybody read the monogram on the living roon carpet - surely it's not their own coat-of-arms?

It's a mixture/entwining of their initials, they have it on their gates as well.
