Wow. Hands down my favorite by far. So jealous of the cottage layout. Love love love your style, furniture arrangement, paint colors, and how you "made it work" in general! You make 350 sq ft look damn good!

@shanalulu; sincere apologies for over zealous use of phrase "sticking it to the man". I in no way intended to encourage tenant on landlord abuse. I actually am a huge advocate (user) of your option b and assumed that vickiann would eventually be re-painting the apartment white as well. Often, young and poor renters such as myself are discouraged from putting any time, money, or effort into their apartments and I simply wanted to give a "thumbs up" for the unabashed love vickiann gave to her rental.

"Doing whatever you want is one of the key perks that, pretty much by definition, come with ownership and specifically do not come with rentership"
I understand that us renters are not entitled to the same perks as owners, but it may be a (very) long time before many of us have the privilege of owning a home. Until then, I believe we still deserve to love the space we live in and have it reflect our personality and style. For me, that involves paint on the walls. At the end of the day as long as the walls are white, the holes are filled, and every nook and cranny has been cleaned, I think painting is not unreasonable and I have yet to have a landlord who disagrees.

While I must admit that I have a strong distaste for your bathroom border, I for one am digging the whole bathroom look in general. Reminds me of an old school opera dressing room. Plus, I have no idea why but that shower curtain makes me want to get naked and bathe. Not my overall style but I can appreciate your aethetic and creativity (not to mention sewing talent). Thumbs Up for sticking it to the man and painting a rental!

Oh, and I am NOT a cat person but that cat walk & mural seriously.kicks.ass.
