When my parents split up I was four. It left my dad with two kids and very limited cooking experience. There were a few basic food groups.... spam, hot dogs (he would cut them in half lenght-wise, broil them in the oven and make them into a sandwhich), box mac and cheese, as well as cheese and mustard sandwhiches.

To this day I cannot even look at spam. It's bad enough just as is, but add to the mix being fed spam 4 times a week for a few years, now that's a harsh food memory. The only thing I remember semi-fondly from these foods is cheese and mustard sandwhiches. With that being said, I'm only in the mood to have a plain cheese and mustard a few times a year.

Beautiful kitchen, however I fail to see how this could be considered small...

Absolutely a beautiful home! Light and airy, yet still eclectic and personal. I love every single aspect of this lovely home!

In my first apartment the walls were stark white which i couldn't stand and my lease didn't allow me to paint. In my bedroom I combatted the white wash blues with hanging different colored sheer panels on every inch of the walls. It was an interesting endeavor.... Using ikeas adjustable wire curtain hardware and a crap ton of soft tulle from joannes, the room didn't look all that bad! I used a few different shades of green and alternated the panels to add interest. It turned out looking like a 70's bachelor pad (Ron Burgundy-esque) but I adored the look!

I am actually in the process of moving back home myself. My situation is a little different as it is on more of a permanent basis for now. My father fell ill and doesn't have the energy to keep up with our 200 year old farmhouse and good bit of land we have. I am planning on painting, as well as doing some refinishing of dressers and bookshelves. My father was actually so kind as to let me have the den as well as my study (or 'woman cave' as I like to refer to it) so I look forward to decorating that room as well. I have books for days and was worried that I would have to cut down on my collection to move.

In your case I would echo the idea of planning updates around the rooms future use for when you are gone, such as a guest room or study. As far as temporary measures, invest in some nice lighting fixtures, new bedspread, etc to make the place feel more you. Those are things that can either go with you when you plan to move back out or can stay in the future guest room if you so choose.

Since you are used to being on your own, you will definitely want to have some personal space to relax and just enjoy your own company. If possible, make a sitting area in your room with an armchair and sidetable.

I am finding that this is a wonderful opportunity to declutter and not hold on to so much 'stuff' that really isn't needed. Hope you are enjoying the process as much as I have!

In general this is a little too modern and minimalist for my taste, but my goodness that master bathroom is breathtaking! I would love to sink into some suds with a nice glass of wine in that tub!

Since when did under $50 become a good price range for a shower curtain? I don't think I've ever paid over 15 for a curtain. I have two that I change based on the seasons... a plain white shower curtain I tye dyed and a curtain made from an old floral sheet. I just sewed it down and put some grommets in... No need to drop that kind of money when you can DIY!

I agree. Love the before! The after is alright, a bit too modern for my taste. But to each their own!

I have a few of these in my bathroom. I used lace as the fabric in the hoop and used fabric stiffener on it. It has the perfect sized holes to slip my earrings in and looks great! :)

I love this idea! Minimal and affordable. Anyone have any idea as to what the weight limit might be on the benches?
