The enclosed fist represents revolution. We have to go out and protest the inequality we are facing with gay marriage. It is a matter of civil rights where everyone is equal. Every major turning point for civil rights has had a revolution first, before change was made. Make sense?

Thank you all for your continued support. I have been blessed to have a great family, friends, coworkers and Apartment Therapy enthusiasts that have commented and voted for me all along. And, I especially want to thank Mario, my fiancé who has been there for me come rain or come shine.

Thank you,

Once again, thank you all for your lively comments. I love the different views on the large painting over the bed. I'm having a ball reading your comments! As Andy Warhol said, "Art is what you can get away with." This is not necessarily my philosophy but it makes good sense to me. If you have an idea, doesn't it make sense to visualize it at least once? You can change it thereafter. This is what I mean when I say that it's more risky to do what is safe. We need to live a little people and look into your inner child! Another great quote to add here by my favorite wit, Oscar Wilde: "The worst thing about being talked about is not being talked about.

As far as the windows are concerned, I have two skylights; one overlooking the dining table and one in the bedroom. There’s also a glass block window on the brick wall. So I do have light. This place was an old ugly attic that was renovated over the summer last year. We remodeled it completely. You would really be amazed if this was a before-and-after contest.

Thank you all for your fun comments! You’d be amazed to know that not one furniture piece here is over $60 with the exception of the white chairs which were bought from Target and painted white. I found the blue chair and the TV piece in the alley! The rest of the furniture pieces are mostly from thrift stores except the dining table, which I bought from CB2 in black, and painted white. The floors are painted white as well with porch paint and finished with several coats of polyurethane. As far as the headboard, well what can I say, I’m an artist and I like it bold and fun. It works well with all the simplicity because of its madness and my dreams are more adventurous because of it! Btw, the doggies’ names are Cypress and Soleil - boy and girl Pekinese.

This is Hot and would be a nice addition to any kitchen. My decor is minimalist green with a dash of red. That said, I would play "Santa Baby" by Ertha Kitt while baking gingerbread cookies and drinking a hot mint mocha.
