For me the first says "come make yourself comfortable, here's some magazines and here's the tv remote".  

 

The second one says "come look at me and see how pretty I look in white".

The after is too sterile and not inviting.   I prefer a comfortable and a real room to be free to live in!

I prefer the second one.  I like the soothing colors much better, and I like the furniture much better too.  It is a bit deceiving as the angle of the photo is different-- or at least it seems that way to me.  I don't care for the furniture or the colors in the before, and even as someone who prefers "big art", it isn't done well in that photo.

I vote for the 2nd one which brightens up the room.  The 1st one is too dark and gloomy.

The after is better because it is a lot lighter and has a better design and layout. However the stark white is to much and needs some splashes of color to warm it up and make it inviting.

To much white. With cats, desert dust it would be a disaster.

I like the first one better. More cozy. The second one is too sterile and not inviting, to me. Too much like a showcase.

The second one looks better to me. I think the first one is more practical for furry friends. 🤔 I couldn't have all white though it's pretty.

It's not even a contest for me.  I always prefer a room with a lot of light.  The seating looks comfortable and I really like the bookcase.  It's also nice to have the TV at a good height for viewing.  Maybe the photos were taken at different times of day, but in the first photo, the couch and carpet are dark and the lamps and walls almost look dingy.  And all the stuff piled on the coffee table would drive me insane!
