Another vote for the Ben Interior line from Benjamin Moore. Love it and the price is just right.

Yes, almost 10 years ago, I had just gone through a divorce and wanted to really get rid of any memories my ex having lived there (moving wasn't an option for me at the time) so I decided to do something dramatic and painted the walls in my apartment's living room this pinkish-cranberry color. I loved it and it made me smile every time I walked into the place. When it was time to move out years later, I remember using a lot of Kilz to hide the color but they planned on painting a fresh coat of their paint anyway, so this was just to help. Kept my security deposit too!

I did http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/diy-tangle-free-headphones-wit-162321 for my ipad charging cable and while it seems like it took me forever to complete, it was totally worth it!

I think a pretty, pale spa-like grayish-green would look great in the space. Benjamin Moore's Morning Dew and April Showers, and Behr's Fortress Stone are the ones which come to mind.

What a great post! Michelle Hinebrook, who is the artist behind Sugarcoat, has a piece I want so badly called Encrusted. I really love art which makes me smile and seeing abstracts, shapes, or symmetry feels so right with me.

While it's not my style, the colors used are nice. I agree with most of the comments that the curtains in the dining room should be the same length.

Neat! We just bought a box of clementines but at the rate I'm eating them, I doubt I'll want to sacrifice any to make a candle.

I would try to see if it can be taken down. Carpet fibers tend to trap a lot of dust and if it's a basement apartment, I would be concerned with allergies. Also, do you know if the basement is devoid of moisture issues? I ask because this reminds me of a friend who rented a basement apartment in a home (it was a duplex) and her place was so humid that she constantly had to have a dehumidifier running. Seeing the carpeted walls makes me wonder about the wall condition behind the carpet. I hope this works out for you and best of luck!

I don't think it looks that bad but I understand your frustration! Depending on the dimensions of the surface, you could buy a large tray (I know West Elm has some large nice ones in great colors) and place it over the tile so that the tray becomes the focal on the vanity. Then when you move, you can always use the tray in another room like the dining room.

A spare kitchen cabinet would work too.
