Just be the first one there! If the showing is at 2, arrive at noon. It sounds absurd, but in a competative rental market it can make all the difference.

Sheesh. People on this sight are no fun at all. You really think this is about her APARTMENT? It's about her amazing dollhouses! Both of which are awesome and definitely could be inspiration for your life sized home!

I've seen the Grimmen bed in person. It is HEINOUS. it looks like it's made out of Oscar the Grouch.

Is the target chair as low to the ground as the ikea chair? I thought the ikea chair was adorable until I saw it in person. It's like a chair for little people or something!

3.1! I was doing great until I had to enter my coffee/alcohol consumption. 14 cups of coffee a week sounds much worse than 2 cups a day. Sheesh!

I feel like this picture is playing a trick on my eyes. For some reason my brain cannot quite compute the actual size of this thing!

I think these would be more interesting if they had a little more in depth descriptions. If these are just pictures of peoples homes, I would love to hear about their inspiration/ where they found things/ what sort of DIY projects may have gone into it.

I had dinner at the Rocket restaurant and our bill came with seed packets to take home!

Thanks for the advice, everyone!

My boyfriend wants to leave it gold, so maybe I will for the time being and just see how we feel about it...

It was definitely worth being a few minutes late to work!

There is an awesome midcentury teak armchair with cushions this exact color in the window of the Portland store Lounge Lizards (14th or so and Hawthorne) right now. I pass it on the bus every day! I would totally be buying it if I had space for it! Also, Lounge Lizards typically is not a place to find bargains, so I'm sure it comes with a bit of a price tag.

This chair is decidedly hideous, but all the "AT needs to stop posting things like this!" commenters need to develop a sense of humor.

Oh! Thanks for the great idea! I've been looking for some good shadow boxes and have been totally frustrated.

Way to "think outside the box"!

haha... sorry.

Now that's it's getting warmer we've been sleeping with the windows open. As it turns out, the woman nextdoor likes to stand outside in the middle of the night smoking cigarettes and gabbing on her cell phone. It sounds like she's in the room with us!

I'll be setting up a fan to mask the noise. That's been enough to take care of noise problems for me in the past.

This is awesome. I would buy this if I was opening a swanky bar or something. So tripppy!
