I haven't had a microwave in years and years, and don't miss it. If I need a fast snack, I can smear some avocado on toast, or make a cheese sandwich.

Cute house! As is is fine... though white would also work.

The bones of this place are incredible. The furnishings are not my taste, but I appreciate the family's apparent individuality and it looks very livable. Thanks for sharing your home!

Clear surfaces and a made bed are my trick... a quick sweep of cat hair and dog hair off the floor helps too.

I adore this - I currently only have a tiny tv in the living room, a thrift store score... I hate a huge tv! I would love something design-y like this... though I bet if it comes to the US, the price tag will be heftier, and it will be sold at Anthropologie.

I adore this apartment... looks livable, creative, and affordable. I first saw it on SFgirl by bay. I don't think I would have taxidermy in my place, but can appreciate how others live. Chill, AT-ers.

Every night we go to bed with cocktail/wine/beer glasses and snack bowls left on the coffee table; our christmas tree is still up; we sleep on a mattress on the floor in a sleeping bag because we haven't found the right bed yet; our dining room is currently a way station (table coming soon); I'm terrible at folding/putting away laundry; I often throw dirty and clean clothes on the floor; more! You?

I sleep with a glass of water next to my bed... what can I say, I'm thirsty. I concur... I want Apt Therapy to get a little more back to its DIY, small-space roots.

I am currently sleeping on a mattress on the floor since I sold everything I owned to move across the country. It'll due till I can save up for the bed I want. I do feel like it makes my bedroom look unfinished, but this post inspired me to make it look better - dress up the bed, etc. It'll be another month at least before I can afford the "real" bed. And to each their own, yo. Apartment Therapy shouldn't be a place for cyber-bullying.

9 Things to Love About Traditional Décor | Apartment Therapy DC

I live in Seattle, recently relocated from Florida, where my line-dry clothes would dry in less than an hour on my little back porch, or a couple of hours hanging from the shower rod. I hand wash tons of things, like sweaters and vintage dresses (or inexpensive dresses too - your target stuff stays so much nicer if you never put it in the dryer) and ten days later, thicker things were still damp. I still won't use a dryer, but will have to learn a new kind of clothing patience, like... guess I won't wear that wool pencil skirt this week.

I understand the no-shoes thing, but, um... fashion! I like wearing a complete outfit in my house and out. If I'm doing something especially dirty (like a lakeside dog walk in my rainy city of seattle), of course I will pull off my shoes at the door. But if it's a swank pair of boots or heels? No way.

After living with my boyfriend for eight years, then breaking up, I got my own place, and was as girly as I wanted to be. My place really expressed who I was, and was enjoyed by whoever came to visit. Though I would try and keep it clean. Now I have the opposite problem... living with a guy again after three years of a place on my own.

Me too. I live with a man, a cat and a dog in about 700 square feet. 1400 would feel palatial.

I have a similar use of the Expedit bookcase in my place. It divides our living room into living space and composer work space.
