actually, the upside-down-lampshade-idea isn't bad, esp. if you're only going to use it to sit a vase or a potted plant. those nasty old lampshades are fairly sturdy and would look just like a cupcake wrapper if you spraypainted them. i think i might try this.

this would make for a very awkward dinner party.

honestly i was a little let down by this issue. the house tours didn't put a hitch in my giddy-up and everything felt like it was a discarded idea they had to put to use at last.

krista ewart's place was cool, but i thought everything else missed the mark.

the only thing this list is missing is the pistol you use to end your suffering.

curtis, they also forgot: silk-and-wool scarf, black velvet blazer, black and/or brown motorcycle boots.

magnaverde, if i rented a car and found a sizable wasps nest in the trunk, i would be absolutely terrified.

that said, i leave stuff everywhere all the time.

in my very first apartment at the age of nineteen, the previous tenant left a bottle of red wine, a corkscrew, a tiny bag of pot, and a really beautiful glass pipe. they were sitting in the bedroom atop the radiator.

since then i've always left a bottle of wine and a note whenever i move out. i figure it's good karma.

i'm so glad this got an honorable mention. i love what a departure this place is from most of the entries.

a dear friend ruined your zebra rug. i've been there. twice.

i really admire that you've made your small space incredibly dramatic. most people living in a 300 sf apt would go all white and keep to an open floor plan. you went in the opposite direction and it looks fabulous.

in theory i like this, but the idea of sitting across from someone with a panel of pink plexi between us is kinda creepy.

looking at this makes me horrified at the dump i lived in for a year while a student at the university of kentucky. i mean, you have windows. my dorm room was about the same footprint as that arc lamp.

regardless, nice work.

those lucite chairs are so. gorgeous.

i really dig this place; it's just masculine enough. of course, i think i like it because my place looks very similar. i wish we could see the bedroom because that thing above your bed looks pretty cool.

i thought this place was really cute, but now i kinda love it because you engineered those sliding doors to have a bigger dance floor. my kind of people.

michelle, not sure if it's the same light, but the people at wary-meyers made this kind of fixture a few months back for a feature in new york magazine. you can email them to ask your question:

i emailed them a few months ago to ask something, and they responded really quickly and were very, very friendly.
