Edited to say: Sorry, meant to say another apartment in the same or a similar building. I won't become an uninvited roommate. ;)

*Frantically checking job ads in San Fran so I can sell my condo and move into your apartment*

You have turned a great home into absolute PERFECTION.

My favourite space is the bedroom. That bed! That window! And leaving the walls alone (vs cramming full of photographs) was an inspired decision.

J'aime vraiment tous les animaux dans votre maison.

(Especially the moose! Being Canadian and all.)

Michael, those tips. That house. The chalk floorplan. And I almost fell off my chair when I saw the living room. Now get that bike out of the bedroom! You think Nate Berkus wants to wake up to the sight of your, er, bike saddle?

The birdhouse hooks are precious.
I like the advice about finding a place for favourite things first (but my oven is in use too frequently to serve as as effective storage space!).

Bathroom sink and vanity = perfect.

I would LOVE living here. I'd add a couple more splashes of colour - just for me - but this is a wonderful space.

Hi DIY: The lamp is a remix from a 1970s style floor lamp. I'm afraid I do not know if there is a "name" behind the style, I just remember having something similar in our house in the early 1980s.

Jettsam: I'd never though of it that way. Maybe should (eventually) replace the loveseat with a single chair?

Thanks, johncb! Paint and crown moulding, baseboards are recent renos.
Re. the lamp, I've always wanted to have a chandelier in the bedroom, but the ceiling is too low (or is the bed too high?).
But what makes the space special for me is the set of two Shaker boxes handmade near my hometown: .

A black & white home -- I love it.

Thank you for your kind words. I will have to check thrift shops for more bunnies. Right now my home is mostly birds and ducks but there's a camel and a giraffe and a few others hanging out as well.
