I have tried all ranges of kelvins in full spectrum CFLs (probably 15 different varieties) and still cannot find a CFL that makes me feel like I'm in an institutional cafeteria.

I can't wait to try the suggestions above!

I LOVE my air plants, but they're NOT FOOLPROOF.

• They need to be misted at least once daily.
• Need good air circulation, therefore...
• You cannot leave them in a terrarium with a small opening.
• They have to soaked once a week.

Folders for each project. When I'm not working on that project, folder is closed.

At the end of the day, everything goes in my drawers or in an file box on my desk. No matter how late I'm working, the desk is decluttered at the end of the day.

Unless the tiles are very large white marble, this is a big NO for me.

If you love your collections, set them free. If they come back they're yours; if they don't they never were or just buy new stuff!

I think it's a bit sad. I don't think it's very flattering to skin tones. How about a gray to complement the browns, oranges and pops of color?

Still, cover that water pipe... with bamboo painted black or paint the water pipe black with and oil-based paint.

Does anyone know how much it costs to fill that sucker with all of those beautiful tiny succulents?

I think this is a great blank palette!!!

1. CHANGE THE GROUT COLOR to white with a special oil-based grout stain from a tile company (if your landlord permits.) It's going to look awesome, so I don't know why he/she would say no?

2. Cover the water pipe with a beautiful long piece of bamboo. Cut it, slip it over, and turn the slit to face the wall. Keep it natural tan; if you go with a green bamboo, use a chartreuse accent color in the bathroom to accent the bamboo; or paint it white if you decide to go monochrome.

3. Can you replace or place a nicer window film over the window? If you can remove the current film, maybe only place the new film halfway up for more light?

4. Paint the medicine cabinet white or the accent color you choose for the bathroom. If you cannot paint it, see if you can remove it, store it, and put up your own.

5. Your bathroom and tile will be beautiful. Make it look bigger and show if off with a CLEAR shower curtain!

6. Hide that plunger.

7. Go totally white or add a beautiful color throughout!

Good luck and let us see the bathroom when it's done!!!
