It seems I'm in the minority here but a large bathroom appeals to me greatly. I tend to live very central and often my friends come over to my apartment to get ready for a night out. This means 3-5 girls doing hair, make up, nails and getting dressed. A large bathroom with 1-2 seats would be heaven (or a dressing room). At the moment, my tiny bathroom can hold 1 person (2 max, uncomfortably) and everyone spills over into the bedroom/living room. Maybe it's a luxury, but having a spa like bathroom would work well for me. As it currently is, I dislike my set up for doing my hair/make up/nails as it seems out of place. I'm not sure if it would be a huge priority, but I know it would definitely be useful for me.

I love this! I'm sure that in many of these apartments there lives an avid book reader and as most avid book readers know, they take up a lot of space. I thought many of these ideas were a good way of incorporating books into the look of your home as opposed to just on book shelves. I personally love how, in some cases, these piles of books transformed into furniture. Also, the appeal of a tattered book/spine is that means you read that book over and over again and can't bare to part from it, despite it being beyond repair, just like a pair of favorite jeans full of holes or recipe cards covered in stains.


Stylish Ways to Display Your Book Collection

Recently my boyfriend and I moved from a tiny 1 bedroom into a huge 2 bedroom. Our guest room is still empty and half of our living room. We are also one of those couples who won't be getting married, so will never reap the benefits of a wedding registry (after going broke on a wedding).

I think the idea of a move in registry is nice, as long as it's not for each and every single move. Since friends are asking as it is, it'd be nice to ensure double gifts aren't bought. For those arguing that it assumes a price range, most registries I've bought from ranged anywhere from $5.00 - $500.00. I was always able to find something on it that suited my income.

For those saying they want to buy them what they think they'll like. That's fine a dandy. You don't have to follow a registry. But I sometimes buy two gifts, splitting my goal spending amount in half, one from the registry and one I just thought the person would enjoy.

Like someone suggested, perhaps they register and only tell those who ask. All others who would be slighted by such a small thing most likely wouldn't think to ask about one.
