I think they're creepy.

What is the accent color in your furnishings? You could use that. Or what about a glossy black. That could look cool with your decorator's white.

My lab mix Gus likes his LL Bean dog bed. However, the sizing chart is off, go a size smaller. But what does he like better? The couch. Oh, and a pile of sheets that are on the floor getting ready to make the move to the laundry room. He loves to sleep on those.

I did it a few times when I lived in a building with a gross laundry room. Now that I have an in-unit washer and dryer, I don't have to.

Ugh - Tracee is a horrible host. I think they're keeping her around for the drama. Nobody is knocking my socks off, but Trish, Matt and Jennifer seem to do best on camera.

As someone who grew up in a red house - I like it!

My first apartment was on Belmont directly across from Mt Carmel. Saturday nights were super loud with traffic and drunks. Sunday mornings you had the church bells. They're not easy to sleep through.

The zoo is on the Estes street side of the park - hope that helps. Say hello to the cow for me!

In my opinion, there's a difference between picking up before the cleaning woman comes and cleaning before the cleaning woman comes. I move all my crap out of the way, shoes back in the closet, make piles if papers are laying around. This way the cleaning woman can actually clean, versus move all my stuff around to clean around it.

You left out the best part of Indian Boundary park - the little zoo. There's not many animals, but they're fun to talk to and completely unexpected. Little kids love them.

My boyfriend's parents live on the park and that place gets lots of use in the summer. There's a ton of picnic-ers every weekend.

My dog and I walk over this several times a week - it's in Chicago.

I used one in my coat closet to hold hats, mittens, gloves, etc. and thought I was quite clever. Then I went to visit my mom and found she had done the same thing. It must be genetic.


Apartment Therapy Los Angeles | Clear Hanging Shoe Organizer in the bathroom?

I like the mirror idea on the large wall. I would add a rug to anchor the space. Since a sideboard isn't an option, what about two tall thin open bookcases on either side of the back wall (the one you face when you stand in the kitchen)? You could use the bookcases for displaying art pieces or cool serving dishes.

Unfortunately, this wouldn't scare my dog. We tried the scat mat, but we think it made him go nutso after he tripped it and then he would chew up things around the house. (He's very excitable). We've gone the route of clear auto mats turned upside down, so the pointy edges point up. Unattractive - yes, but they work and are cheap. We just move them when company comes.

I've gotten glass cut at Clark & Devon hardware, not sure if they cut plastics. It's worth a phone call to them. FYI - they're my fave hardware store ever, even though I moved out of the 'hood. The staff is plentiful and helpful.

The big ol' George Foreman grill, some booze, some mixers and chips.

There is a flea market in Sandwich, Illinois. It runs spring thru early fall. It's smaller than Kane County, but has lots of beautiful furniture - especially Mission Style
