we're the first photo and yes, the table is the IKEA knock off. we're taking it one severely expensive piece at a time.

@polishchick: i'd definitely wait until you are somewhere you plan on staying. that thing was really annoying to install...

oh whoops, sorry. Kitchen floor is CORK, not linoleum. Still early...

@Sunnydark: Yeah, we know the place is a little groovy, but we've been pulling it back, I swear.

@sarahlr: kitchen floor is linoleum

@dport67: My grandparents had an interior decorator help them in the early 60s. It's a George Nelson CSS and it was in my grandfather's study for 50 years.

@Tobyacts: There used to be thin columns keeping us from pushing the bed back all the way. When we decided to get rid of them I went off to get tools. When I came back, Genevieve had just kicked them out.

Forgot to mention, we're unsure about the Couch manufacturer, but Genevieve bought it with her mother at a sample sale at LA Mart, Downtown.

First off, thank you to everyone who has said such nice things about our home, and to ATLA for taking such beautiful photos.

Regarding the questions, we agree about the towels. They are now off the floor. The records are safe, because the sunlight never creeps further into the room than is shown in the photos. The paint colors should be listed in the survey. The artwork above the couch is a Kelly Barrie photograph. The mirror-effect it gives is irritating, but the anti-glare plexi costs a bundle. As for the faux fireplace, it was here when we moved in, and we'd actually just like to get rid of it and the heater altogether.
I should've let Lucy in for some photos, but was worried she'd get too excited and not let the photographer do her job. A photo of her can be found here:

Thanks again!

going through this right now. we've both edited our knick-knack type stuff to a degree. definitely agree on the record situation, but we resolved that by turning the record shelf on it's side to make it into a sort of buffet by the dining table, and by acquiring less visually bulky speakers.

I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous. Noone wants to see a shoe collection centerpiece. The furniture is nice, but the use is trashy.

I stayed at my girlfriend's house for a couple of weeks and came back to find my floor incredibly dusty because my housemate had been using my room with a bunch of people several nights in a row. I broomed about 3 pounds of dust across a long hallway and spread it all over his space.
