fabric. but i dream of an outdoor shower ... just saying

as for the leaks, this will happen if you point the shower head in a way so that the water hits it dead on.

ask any vet & they'll tell you that shampoo is worthless. it basically just irritates the skin. it's worth the money to go to the vet & get the $10 spot treatment.

& also, remember to follow up flea season with deworming (get the kind from the vet) b/c fleas carry worms.

yes. when i saw that in the contest, i was a little sad.

that said, when you venture outside of the people who read design blogs everyday & really know trends, it doesn't matter.

most of the people i know don't even really know the terms deco, mid century, wabi sabi, etc.

my last apt was in the fall colors finals twice. i LOVED it. it was my first studio & it was the first place i totally unpacked in. i had to edit myself like crazy. i think it made me know myself better.

it was sad to move, but i left it to get married & live w/ my husband. & decorating w/ another person's things? that's a whole new challenge!

i think it'd be nice if you refocused on the APARTMENT part of your site.

you can go anywhere & see great design, people knocking down walls, & furnishing million dollar lofts. the thing that made me love you was the attitude in your book. more of that please! ^_^

i think it could've been nice to fix the flooring & leave the monet in sections. maybe paint could frame it. but yeah, it looked neat, now it just looks kinda same old same old suburbia

the bathroom is fairly apropos & could give the art the feeling of a more purposeful collection.
