I had to laugh when I read the Boy George quote - I was at a Sydney Mardi Gras party one year when a poor party-goer was flattened by a giant mirror ball which fell from the ceiling. BTW - excellent space!

I worked in PR for a number of years for an international hotel chain which meant 'living in' for long stretches at various properties. The single-most thing I often did to make my room feel more like home was a simple request to housekeeping NOT to service my room daily (more often every three days). It meant I made my own bed most days (or left it in a state of dissaray as the mood took me!)...and requested a room service when I wanted it. Just knowing the room would be exactly as I left it when I came back of an evening was great, and housekeeping loved me for it!

If I'm not mistaken, this property and its construction was featured in an episode of the UK television series 'Grand Designs'.

Anyone else find the elf candles disturbingly pornographic? (Note to self: Add to decor shopping list).
