I also have an interior bathroom. I actually painted it dark gray and then added large, mostly white (with a pop of red) artwork and white towels. With the white tub, light gray tile, large mirror, and light granite counter top, I think the place looks pretty classy, if I do say so myself. That being said, this is the second bathroom, so I don't know if I'd want to put my makeup on in there every day. However, I always get compliments from guests who use it as a powder room.

The problem with listing how much you pay for a mortgage is that so many factors influence it (interest rate, down payment, etc.). It's sort of a useless figure for determining where to live and more of a reflection of the homeowner. (Rents are a different story.)

What, no one else had any Rob Lowe?? (He still looks just as good as he did in that mid-'80s poster!) I also had tons of Duran Duran (Team Simon!), John Stamos, C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, and Matt Dillon (I was totally a child of the '80s). At some point I also had a big poster of the cute boys from A-Ha.

See if you can get a couple security company stickers to put outside your front door. Sometimes that's enough of a deterent for would-be thieves.

In any case, if someone really wants to get in, they will.

FYI, when you're about to give a spoiler, you have to say what you're giving a spoiler TO! Especially when you throw in a red herring like "LOST" in the middle of the sentence. I know this isn't a TV blog, but still.

FYI, I ordered print #5 (top row) after seeing this post. It just arrived today, and while it's beautiful, it's much smaller than the listed 18x24 size. It looks about 12x16. I suppose when you're doing a large charity project like this, some details fall through the cracks, but I was disappointed. Now I have to figure out a different wall space for this smaller print!

I would love to know the source for the mirror in the second photo. I've been looking for something like that for my own living room.
