I'll just be over here in my rented corner, dying of lifestyle envy.

Whaaaaa...? This is GORGEOUS.

(No Middle Name, you also have no imagination. I can think of a billion things I'd use it for, besides just as an object of beauty.)

Before & After: A Rusty Reject Gets a Reclaimed Reno

My old (rental) house had the original 1950s mint green bathroom, complete with grey-and-black-flecked polished concrete floor, and mirror with a frosted palm tree.

I ADORED it, and a little part of me will never forgive the owners for bulldozing the lot and replacing it with a soulless McMansion. :(

These pink bathrooms are delicious, but it's a big 'NO' to the 'global rug' one. Rugs have no place in bathrooms, especially not that close to the toilet.

Oh my, it is gorgeous! As soon as I saw 'minty fresh', I knew I was going to love this. Yum.

That floor was worth every bit of sweat.

Love it!!! Perfect fabric choice, beautiful stripped wood. My favourite furniture makeover for a long time.

Oh my God, how cute is she?! The outfit, with that feather fascinator. Awwwww.

(The room is also precious.)

One of the best places I've seen on here. Made me happy flipping through it. The textiles are divine. Thanks for sharing!

What an awesome room. Tons of colour, yet still simple enough to leave room for playing and learning. Love it.

This is officially the coolest house tour EVAH. Magical, whimsical, lush and delightful. I'm dying here.

I can't wait until I have time to go through this properly again...and again...

I absolutely would have adored this room when I was a little girl. Love everything about it, especially the ceiling, and all the pink and red together. Yum. LOVE.

Aww. They just seem like such a lovely couple. Beautiful, fresh home too. All the best for your adoption, guys! (And that macramé Moses basket is divine.)

(And by the way, if you think your rental kitchen is bad, you should see mine!! Yours is gorgeous in comparison.)

I'm with Griffin. This is completely mad.

Inflatable pool? Spray bottles? Bumbo??

We spend hours and hours every year at the beach, with an assortment of kids of all ages. You need exactly: shade, water & food, towels, and sun protection (sunscreen/UV suits/hats). Books for the adults and buckets & spades for the kids are a fun addition. Done and done.

Kids are supposed to get sandy and wet and stick their hands in dead sea stuff - it's the whole point of going!

I'm almost pathetically envious.

This is like lifestyle porn for the desert-obsessed.

Love this so much. Major bathroom envy. Not to mention the coloured rug, bed cover, cow thingy, sofa cushions, and...everything else.

What's going on with the photos here? The perspective is definitely kind of...warped. Look at the coffee table on the far right in the first picture: presumably it's square, but it doesn't look it.

I think this camera trick makes places look bigger than they are. I've seen it in other small cool entries, too.

It's not a criticism, since I don't really care - just puzzled.

I love this very hard. This is the house I dreamed of living in when I grew up.

God, I LOVE the first one.

That would be my dream bedroom if I lived somewhere semi-tropical.

This is SO cool.

Extra bonus points for having 'The Velveteen Rabbit' on display. Best book ever.

Hard to find words for how gorgeous this is. Big props.

The 'before' looks dingy and grubby. The after look clean, contemporary and fresh.

And I don't even like chevron or the colour red.
