@Raches - The bathroom floor is a type of linoleum. I painted over it, and then sealed it with concrete sealer.

We are all on the same page. Since this was posted I have done an entire overhaul. I repainted the living room, and the post is white.

Alopex: The white chair came from a store on La Brea. Im not sure of the name. The green lamps came from HomeGoods. I think HomeGoods has a great inexpensive lamp collection. The bedside tables and credenza came from a vintage store on Santa Monica in Hollywood. And the dressers a craigslist buy that I refinished. Sorry that answer doesnt help you too much.

Mister B: The dog bed is to the left of the bedside table. I would love to have a dog bed in the living room, but there is no place for it. Sometimes I drag it out to the living room so we can lounge together.

Annejsf, The kitchen walls are done in a mat paint, so its as non gloss as you can get. I did paint the ceiling in a semi gloss for clean up purposes. The ceiling is so low, so it discolors over the stove. The wood grain shelves would be good, I happen to like how the shelves match the upper cabinets though.
And the bathroom is a light grey, with the floors so loud I feel like a color would make it a carnival. I TOTALLY agree with you about the mirror. I was torn about it when getting the bathroom redone. I decided that I needed the storage of the medicine cabinet, and it stayed.

The ceramic horse heads came from a garage sale, and the antelope head came from the rosebowl flea market. Sorry neither of those help you find them.
And the red door opens to the sunken area of my bedroom. Its nice in the summer to leave it open at night and let the breeze in.

Thanks to everyone for such nice comments. A few people asked about my bedding. I got the duvet from Home Goods. It was a nice find for about $30, if you can believe it!

As for questioning the size of the place.... I had to second guess my measurements and re-measure. Just checked again, and yes, still 400sq ft!

AllyG... I got the curtain rods from Ikea and took off the end pieces to put them right against the walls.

Zenezie, The 400 square feet does not include the patio. That is my only dining space.
KelleyK, the dressers were bought painted. I refinished them and changed out the hardware. The painted floors are holding up well so far, fingers crossed.

Thanks everyone.
Bee for brian, I love a chevron supporter! The floor was a linoleum, I painted it and sealed it with concrete sealer. If chevron ever gets old, it will be easy to change.
