I wonder when we'll have the same nostalgia for vhs, cds, and so forth as we currently feel for (lo-fi) records, lps, polaroids, film photography. Sorry for the non sequitur.

Since the couch is red and the wall green, there's a somewhat jarring Christmassy effect. I would consider painting the crown molding, as the white doesn't really pull the room together but is really jarring as well. Perhaps paint the white bits and slipcover the sofa another color?

This topic seem somewhat congruent with Jasper Morrison's super normal discussion:
Super Normal"</A>
He writes: "Design, which is supposed to be responsible for the man-made environment we all inhabit, seems to be polluting it instead. Its historic and idealistic goal to serve industry and the happy consuming masses at the same time, of conceiving things easier to make and better to live with, has been side-tracked."

There are some pretty things in here. Though with some of the exceptional homes and house tours on this site, this 'design' doesn't seem to contribute much to that group. I agree, recently the most lackluster tours seem to have come from the DC subsite.

There's a big difference between staying on a budget and cutting back.

After allotting bills, rent, etc. for my monthly budget, I take out in cash what my budget is for that week, and only spend up to that amount for incidentals. If I don't spend all of it (like hoarding lunch money) I either get to buy my frivolous girly things, or put it aside for more frivolous purchases.
