I really like that no sew pedestal sink curtain. I pinned the page in case I end up in an apartment with a sink like that (I hope not, but one of my options has one). Thanks!

I would rather use the contact paper they used in this AP feature than try to paint it myself. Pairing the paper with the spray paint instead of the copper leaf would make the simplest iteration of this DIY project.

Hmm...a decent looking fix, but not for a rental. That seems like a tough color to paint over.

A new one won't have this beautiful upholstery and history though. I'm not disagreeing, it is steep, but I mainly wanted to post a picture. ;)

What I Wish I Knew About Home Decor When I Was 22

I'm a 22 year old and will be moving into my first post-college and post-parents' house apartment in June. I trawl Craigslist all the time and after passing on a dark $50 red velvet armchair that I realized I was in love with too late, I learned that I need to spring for the things I want. I recently found a Herman Miller Eames upholstered shell chair in great condition. It's a DAX with black vinyl back/arms and a black cloth seat. I really like it, but it's a significant chunk of change at $400. Is that the sort of #8 investment piece you recommend that we buy or should I save my money because my tastes might change?

My handkerchief window treatment in my bedroom. It was too much of a hassle to hang blinds since I'm leaving soon, and this works beautifully.

Thanks! I browse in a tiny window while I'm at work and when I opened AT just a minute ago I noticed the change. It's very helpful and I'm glad that you optimized viewing for little screens, not just phones.

Apartment Therapy Goes Mobile!

My parents never entertained because my dad felt the house needed to be perfectly clean before anyone came in. Having people over always turned into a fight and I got uncomfortable about having friends over at a young age. It's a shame because my parents bought the house for its semi-open, circular layout (perfect for parties) and it's decorated beautifully... This summer I'll be moving into my first post-college apartment with a few friends. I'm really excited to host but kind of nervous because I've never lived in a "host house" - you know, the friend's house you always go to for parties. I'm expecting to overcompensate and fall into an "oh my god, I'm just like dad" spiral.

Any tips on storing stud earrings? Danglies are easy to store because you can hook them on to lots of different storage devices, but I'm having trouble keeping my studs in matching pairs. The teacups would work, but you're still digging for the twin. I think mesh or lace might work but I'm not sure how to implement it.
