leave it as is. I always cringe thinking about future generations wondering why we spray-painted everything white or with "fun pops of color". It's kinda disrespectful.

If it's the color of the stone that really bothers you, you could use a masonry and stone stain. This would look less sloppy than paint. If you paint your home make sure to use a masonry paint so that it doesn't chip, bubble and peel.

I'm surprised not to see the classic Dora Maar vases from the 60's or the Jonathan Adler version.

When I buy records online I tend to use discogs. It's a crowd-sourced record store which makes it easier to find obscure or out of print vinyl at competitive prices which is important when you buy as much vinyl as I do.

I always like the way red plays against petrol blue and ashy wood tones.

I really like this for people who live in 70's or 80's housing. It bothers me so much, seeing before and afters where remodels clash with the era of a house. In ten years there is going to be a whole generation of people talking about the lost architecture and interior details that are so easy to scoff at now. I mean, if you want a french country kitchen, don't buy a split level house.

I prefer the different chairs in the same color. It looks less cluttered to me and highlights the silhouettes.

Try a round coffee table. You can get one that is more traditionally sized and functional but the curve will still allow traffic around it.

I hate landing strips. They always look so hodgepodge lodge or ikea tack on to me. Can someone please write a post on how to make a landing strip look expensive and classy? I really don't want an area of my apartment to look like a mudroom.

The "dining" table at the bottom is a library table... in front of a book shelf. How innovative!

I'm liking the textile trends a lot. It seems like op-art and psychedelic patterns in more sophisticated hues are used throughout too. I'm looking for something like that for our window coverings.

Starting off with a mirror like that is so smart with a studio. It really tricks your first impression into seeing the space as much larger. I'm currently on the hunt for mirrors for our new place.

I've heard some nightmares about white on white apartments in NYC getting weird and sooty but... I can see why someone would want to walk into such a serene atmosphere after spending the day in such a densely populated city. Does one weigh out the other or does is soot not really a problem as I've heard it described? houseofthebonestorm.blogspot.com
