Longtime reader, first time commenter. I think it's a beautiful home. Very personal feeling but also interesting and (mostly) witty. However I must agree with those who have voiced an objection to the "fuck it" sign. It's not the profanity I object to, though. I (or my child) won’t be permanently scandalized by seeing the “F word” on a wall. We see far more explicit graffiti outside our apartment every day (I’m thinking of a particularly creative tagger who drew a cartoon penis on EVERY brick on the first floor of a neighboring building – I actually kind of loved that). Rather, the phrase just seems so tediously common. In a home that is mostly so creative and unique feeling, the phrase actually seems quite old-fashioned to me, a relic of a time when getting a tattoo was transgressive. It is the opposite of shocking or provocative. It’s something Britney Spears would say.
