I painted my Financial District kitchen (the only defined room in my apartment) a salmon-carnation pink.The cabinets are a hideous orange-y yellow wood, so I did what I needed to live with them more harmoniously. I figure I'll paint it back before I move out. I'm the one who has to live in the space, as long as I don't permanently damage it, it should be mine to make a comfortable and happy place.

I was without power, gas, and water of any kind (not just hot water... ALL water) for 5 days in NYC.

I loved this museum, but thought the giftshop was lacking. i appreciate the departure from the usual museum shop, but do wish they had some items that were more location specific. I love to grab postcards of my favorite pieces, professional photography is way better than my own. Also, I think a lot of the soaps/notebooks/cards were overpriced for their quality (only so so).

I've stayed here and taken the elevator, it is so incredibly beautiful. Unfortunately you still have to pay 10 Euro to ride even if you're a guest, but the elevator moves slowly and I took a million photos of amazing saltwater fish. They have a diver clean the tank every morning and it is fascinating to watch. The rooms are nice too, I recommend the stay there to anyone traveling in Berlin.
