What I Love About My Home

I love that my apartment feels intimate. When I moved in I could only really bring my favorite things, there wasn't room for everything. So now no matter where I look I see something special to me. A glass bowl from a trip to Venice or a photo of my favorite people. I love that I can walk to anything, our neighborhood is what we were drawn to first. And the fireplace and my large closet sealed the deal.

Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home

Merging our things and paring down. He wanted to bring things that were comfortable but not necessarily great looking. So we compromised and splurged on having a chair and sofa reupholstered. If we aren't going to have a lot of things, the things we do have should be nice. I also brought a large area rug which I had cut down and surged to fit the new space.

Favoriting and voting have ended.

Pretty sure rugs get 'serged' rather than 'surged'. Not picking on Jessica; it's up to the copy editor to catch this stuff.

Aaaaaaah... Your place is like a breath of fresh air and actually looks a lot like my apartment, but I was surprised to read you share it with a "he" as there is a decidedly feminine air. He is very sweet to let you get away with the flowered bed linens!

Normally too feminine for my tastes...but the "beautiful nature" themes throughout saved it in my eyes!

That clear chair at the desk is amazing! I'm also surprised you share with a 'he', I'm trying to man-ify my own space to share with one.

Wow, it's so beautiful! All of the rooms look wonderful to live in, but the bedroom in particular is just so comfortable and bright without smacking you in the face with it. A real inspiration!

it is very girlie but in a a very mellow way and that's cool. it's the house of a charmingly quirky lady who solves crimes in her spare time. :) very nice job.

It looks like you surround yourself with the things you love. Warm, cozy, clean, and beautiful.

Beautiful job. Your apartment has this feminine vibe that I'm looking to do in my bedroom, so I've found this to be good inspiration. Your bedspread is lovely. :)
