SherryBinNH is right on. Books as pedestals for vases creep me out in particular. They are not coasters!

why not display candles with new wicks? I'm curious about rules like this. I had heard (but never really observed) the rule that if you have guests, you always use new candles.

Another vote for brown. or gray or silver. I really think dark is your best bet here. black and white vertical stripes - wide, like 8 inches or a foot - could also work.
no cute or easter egg colors. You are, by definition, going to be embracing the pink, but that doesn't mean you should make it worse.

soup is typically, in my experience, the first or second course, not the main.

Buy, I see what you're getting at. I had some red been soup for dessert at a Chinese restaurant last night- a Chinese colleague had ordered for us. It was fine, but not something I'm rushing to make at home. It was warm, too! but still...

No, might be a good idea, though! I clean the stove after every time I make dinner, and wipe the countertops everytime I do anything in the kitchen, even if it's just making a sandwich. I was brought up that this was part of doing the dishes. did my parents lie?

I like the idea of shelves or a picture rail - Hoyt Clagwell has it right. Acknowledge was it is and make it look good. if it annoys you in a year then you could do the plaster thing, but it seems like a lot of effort and you still wouldn't have a seamless look.
I think it could look really great though, with the shelf/ picture rail distracting from the different materials, and adding character and function to the room.

Cardamom! It really needs to be ground fresh, and this makes it so convenient!

This is very cool. Isn't there some sort of cheaper way to do a remote light switch?
