They don't seem to have a clear idea when decorating of what they want to do to the room as a "whole." Most people can get away with this, and decorate as they collect items over say, a 6 month period. But the thing is, YHL has a popular blog and has to produce results, you know? They don't have 6 months for a guest bedroom re-do. A mood board would help tremendously, in my opinion, so they can see what they are doing before they commit.
I also think they set a very high bar with this house. People were (and some still are) very excited to see what they were going to do with a blank slate. There was a lot of hype. I'm so glad they love it, but I just think they are falling a little short, need to step back and look at the big picture.
It does seem that aside from the napkin that they aren't following much of a theme or idea. I find it a little odd considering they used to do so many mood boards. Maybe they have one they haven't shared.
I do agree they need stuff for filler, but they should be more judicious with what they post so they keep readers. At least they posted a house crashing today (beautiful home), so they might be getting back to that. A little focus taken off their house might be a good thing.
I also didn't mean for this post to sound like I was attacking them. In the most recent YHL posts, someone has always commented that their house isn't cohesive, and I've just felt that it might be cohesive when it's finished, but it's hard to tell right now.
