Great job. I love turquoise. It looks so much bigger, and feels good just looking at it.

In the store, I wouldve considered those tiles "risky", or more for a bathroom. But they look great, so pretty.

#2 and 3 are great ideas. Love the tablet holder, and very needed in my kitchen.

#1, not so much. I think more often than not, the result would be cheap and shabby looking.

I really like the color scheme as well; relaxing. Love the map, the room will be cool for throughout all growth stages.

Ive had an item stolen. Ive long since moved, but the packages would be left in a secured foyer, under the mailboxes--typical apt bdlg setup. Some nice person delivered the opened ripped box to my door, incomplete with invoice. It was a stun gun I needed because Id been followed home the week before.

I think 9 times out of ten, while the package is worth something to the owner--because they need it, duh!-it rarely would be worth something to a thief. Think about it......unless its fine jewelry, or expensive electronics (or a $3K espresso machine, how many things actually have street value??

I <3 that wall, and the space in-general. But we needed to see the kitchen.

Thank you, they all look fabulous, especially that chorizo one. I only know how to cook collard greens one way, and though I love that way, its nice to expand.

The shopping itch died quickly when I had an out-of-pocket funeral last year.

1) that it was my first time as a home owner; I picked it out, and decorated it from the ground up (when I moved in, I didnt even have a chair). I decorated piece by piece until it transformed into everything that represented me.

2) I'll miss the neighborhood, it was very walkable and full of businesses and parks
3) The unfinished oak floors (Ive never seen them before or since)
4) The size--it was cozy and perfect for one person w/ no kids
5) energy efficient--I rarely turned on the heat or air conditioning

Looking forward to:
1) Remodeling and decorating (expensive but fun)
2) Kinda/sorta looking forward to being back in my hometown
3) Living amongst a different demographic (wonder how long before this thrill wears off....)
4) Big gorgeous fireplace
5) Library

NOT looking forward to:
1) super high crime rate
2) terrible roads
3) inefficient police dept

Eh, thats about it....

I love it. I've been visually molesting tiles by Popham designs for months, and they use them in every room and on every surface. I want them for the kitchen floor. Honeycomb is classic.

I rather like it. Especially the jungle one, and all of the designs by Eskayel. One would need very good taste to make it work.
