I would like a couple of these to use as nightstands.

Anecdotal, but:

At my age, my dad supported my stay-at-home mom and three kids, owned a house,totally furnished, in a nice neighborhood and had two cars. We weren't rich but we always had new clothes.

Now each my husband and I make more than he did at that time if we adjusted for inflation (as in double or more than he did), and yet the above scene looks impossible.

We do make different choices. We live in an expensive (but not so safe) city neighborhood where we can walk, we have one paid-for car, we save up to furnish our place secondhand. No kids and worried about affording them. I do not buy luxury or high tech items.

I'm not really complaining. Overall, I'm happy, but it seems to me my folks had more and worried less.

Curbside find: A framed print of a Champagne ad featuring Grace Kelly. I probably wouldn't have thought to buy it, but the colors go great with my kitchen area.

I think if the bloggers could use "I," then some individual personalities might emerge, and it would be more interesting.

Also, I think that the drain cover kinda sucks. I do not see any functionality.

The pink is very Barbie.

Color is personal. Keep the wall pink for as long as it makes you happy, and then change it.

I understand the significance of the architect, but the building is ugly imo, and doesn't work well as a library.

I think they look like Heywood Wakefield.

Reading materials in the bathroom gross me out.

I don't know about the quality, but I would never buy an upholstered bed. Too much potential for the upholstery to get dirty.

I think all of these ideas are super cool.

I would love to read reviews on this mattress.

I recently came across a similar mirror that is beautiful but not cheap.

It comes from a guy who refinishes Heywood Wakefield pieces, and also makes custom pieces.
