It doesn't look real?? Before and after is totally off? ....and I see it's not just me. Was the contest staged for more people to join the site?? ...Well I hope not, but it just doesn't look like she got all that cool stuff and had some friends take pictures to show us. .....and can you paint dorm room walls??? ....change the floors and windows in student housing?????

yeah, agree that "before" and "after" is misleading. LOVELY furniture, but we're not fools!

oooh okay now i get it about the showroom, i was wondering how it just so happened that her books were all monochromatic --- makes sense now. :) I wish we could she her REAL after, in a few years, so that we'd know what west elm can do out of their show room...

Wow! What a difference - it looks very mature compared to the starving student before look (no offense) :) Congrats!!!

Oh, and congratulations again on your furniture and the possibility of having a showroom-like room. ;)

Well then, "before and after" is a bit misleading then, isn't it? They have no idea what the place she ends up living will look like, so the after will be completely different. And obviously there is no before to compare it to. That's a lovely room, though. It would have been nice if it were stated that this was a showroom and that it's a "possible" room (redundant since you can see this type of room in any showroom or page on their website).

Congrats! ...With such different angels and lighting of the room in the before and after pictures this whole thing seems fake. I like the chose in furniture but I would have painted the walls a richer bolder coler to make the pastels pop... things looks a bit washed out.
