I hang my scarves on the towel rack in my bathroom, where I do my makeup and put on accessories. (of course, this leaves me nowhere for towels...)

This makes me SO glad I'm single! ^_^ I have a love/hate relationship with IKEA. On one hand, it's shopping, and there's a bunch of cool stuff! On the other hand, it involves some of my least favorite things: Crowds, noise, and people in my personal space. It's fun when I have time to browse and a few vague ideas of what I want. If I'm on a strict schedule, if it's a weekend, or if I'm feeling overly sensitive, I stay away.

My first thought when seeing this was, "Now where in Boulder County is this?" LOL! It's very cool. I'd love to see it up close, or better yet, go inside.

Favorite! I love the wall color, the happy vibe...and that balcony!! Way to work with what nature and circumstance have given you.

@CCATX, yes!! I've worked as an EMT, and have come to love big, legible house numbers. I'd love to have something huge and illuminated. I joke about using chaser lights, and secretly want to do it...pay attention to my address!!

Unfortunately, now I'm in a townhome, and am stuck with the standard-issue house numbers. Luckily, they're a decent size and they're and high-contrast. Could be worse.

favorite! I love how open and cool and bright the place is! It works really well with the home. But I must ask...what's with the molecules on the chalkboard wall?

I just moved out of my smallest place: 560 sq. ft for myself, my preschooler, two cats, and a dog. NOT IDEAL. For me, it would have been perfect...but adding a small child and the animals was overwhelming.

I just moved a week ago. I don't know where to shop. 9_9 (first world problem, I know) I do know that the Albertson's closest to the house is no good. The Super Target about three miles away is a Super Target (so, it works, and it's not expensive), but I'd really like to find a good King Soopers, Sunflower, or Sprouts nearby.

I'll try the bacon thing (OM NOM NOM!) if you try frozen berries. Microwave about 1/4 cup frozen berries for about 30 seconds, cook oatmeal as normal right on top of the berries, and enjoy. 3 minutes until breakfast!

I love your little office nook! The whole place is beautiful, and George looks like such a happy dog. I like the idea of a "wall of stuff," I might have to use that in my small home.

I like the way the room is divided without using physical dividers. And as a former West Hollywood resident, I am SUPER jealous that you got a parking space!
