As someone who entered the contest I found the comments section to be quite encouraging. The opportunity to have any positive feedback far outways the risk of having a few negative ones. It can be up to the individual entirely if they decide to read the comments.

Hi, the desk/ wine bar is from crate & barrel. The typewriter is made by Royal, my husband picked it up at a street fair.
Coco, thanks for your comments on the color choices. I too in the past have used all manner of colors and have now edited it down to a palette that I find refreshing to look at every day.
And no kitty (Olive) didn't make it to the paint store, her colors are all beautifully her own!

DC Lisa, the yellow in the dining room is Benjamin Moore, Straw and the basement wall color is Behr, Warm terra cotta. It's a very warm, glowing color especially when softly lit at night.

Hi, the coverlet on the bed is also from target (really I do shop at other stores too!) What's great about it is that it's reversible. The other side is a rich chocolate brown.

Hi, to answer some questions -

The bedroom wall color is Benjamin Moore, Par Four. The chalkboard wall is black chalkboard paint. I made the paintings in the bedroom, living room, and basement.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments! The rug is from target, it was available last year. The artwork over the typewriter and desk is actually from a stencil which I repeated in an alternating pattern over a canvas.

In Brooklyn I broke down and bought a portable washing machine. I stored it in the closet and wheeled it out and hooked it up to the kitchen sink when I wanted to do laundry. It could handle a fair amount of clothes/towels/ etc. Perfect for items you want to handwash too. Saved the hassle of dragging heavy bags to the laundromat.
