"Oh my,such high blown rhetoric over a picture of someone that 95% of anyone under the age of 35 have no idea even existed."
What an ignorant statement, on multiple levels.

It needs rugs to help define some of the spaces and to cozy it up a bit. Lots of cool elements, though. I love the window decals!

Ah, I envy all of the white....white linens, white trim, white furniture. *sigh* someday, when my kids grow up and move out. Beautiful home.

Is their electricity shut off???? Seriously, though, most of the lights are shut off and the photos are mostly in shadows. Disappointing. I would have liked to have a better view of some of these rooms.

Jaw-dropping nursery....just beautiful! I'm so impressed with how much of this home is DIY!

Gorgeous! The only photo I found jarring was the stacks of towels stuffed on shelves all around the TV.

I could have (and did) live this way when I was twenty....but the older I get, the less exciting it looks and sounds.
I could not abide "Poopin in a bucket" long term, or bathing outdoors in the winter. No way.

I'm jealous of the before...My bathroom was a hovel when we bought our home and I haven't been able to afford to update it.

How To Throw a Super Bowl Party Outdoors The Horticult

It looks like a set for a TV show. Yes I know it's all staging for the sale, but i like seeing homes of the average man/woman on the street who manage extraordinary creativity and innovation and home design on a budget. I like hearing their personal stories. I like reading about their inspiration, and the things that matter in their lives. A staged home with a decadent budget is something I just don't find it very interesting.

She's asking for a solution to the gap. Get over yourself already.


Can I Make a Crib Mattress Work with an IKEA Children's Bed? Good Questions
1/29/14 12:29 AM

But why would you buy one? Advantages? Point? Reason to shell out a stack of cash on yet another device that we don't really need? I don't know much about glass, except that it's superoverhyped to be the next leap for mankind *eyeroll*

No show and tell on your "unicorn" piece??? I wanted to see the cart!


Shopping for the Perfect Piece: Do You Buy it Now or Wait it Out?

I still feel massively guilty for throwing away a 9' jute rug that one of my dogs barfed and shat all over. Too big for the wash, and impossible to use the carpet shampooer on and avoid water seeping into the wood floors underneath.


Are You a Laundry Rule Breaker?

Does anyone know a source for these type of legs? I found a wonderful MCM dresser at a Goodwill for almost nothing. The legs were detached and in one of the drawers. I was dismayed when I got it home to find 6 mismatched legs for a dresser that needed 4- only 3 of them fit!
