And for the record....I saved a pic of this re-do and the last re-do in my own personal files for future inspiration!! Mark another one to the list of those you HAVE inspired.

I posted on the last re-do and while it was not to my taste...the thing I do LOVE to see is how people create and redo things with colors and features that make THEM happy. I LOVE what you have done to this...because it is YOURS. I really do pull so much inspiration from other peoples creativeness...and this one is included. This should be a keeper. I like the boldness of the red in this one and even the prior re-do and that says alot about your desire to think OUTSIDE the box. Ther are always going to be people who will analyze pieces to bits...throw them to the wind. I have to wonder...HOW MANY people are totally indignant at Antonio Ballatore's "fushia pink" inserts into most of his rooms and who is he....He is HGTV'S own design star and has his VERY OWN SHOW. Me...I love his designs!! Go with your flow Ms Thing....I think in real life you're a real stand-out....go with it in all you do!!! lover!! and hummingbirds DO INDEED share the same space....just sayin ;-)

I really like!! You have taken a rented space (that sometimes comes with limitations as to what you can change) AND a somewhat small place and made it feel just right!! It's also evident that you have chosen decor features that are quite unique and special...especially if most were picked up at re-sale, antique or rummage sales. Well done fellows!! I must say...I too LOVE the "No exit" sign.

How annoying are some of your either LIKE it or NOT. I personally do not like it...but some of you do....BUT I am not gonna play "DEBATE CLUB" over a piece, that obviously meant something to the person who created it. Some people like chocolate and some people like vanilla...thats pretty much what makes the world a vivid and fun place. The reason I come to this site is because of the DIVERSITY and UNIQUENESS of ALL of the styles and tastes of those who post. I'm done...enough said...

Wow!! With most people craving bigger spaces, I on the other hand LOVE smaller ones. Your place is cozy, modern and speaks of a "peaceful place". AWESOME!! You moving anytime soon ;-)
