That's fun, but not a time saver - you have to comb/brush hair before anyway- not green, no clean, noisy... It's like taking the car to go to the dely in your street...

If you love the green on the walls, you could peint bright white the wood arround the windows. It would reflet much more the ligth and the space would look more contemporary. I would move too the bookcase in the corner wich "eat" visually the space. And yes, bring in some accents of colours with throw over sofa and pillows as S. Coulombe just said.

Good question: how do you do with a rug in the kitchen? It's an special material? Do it need special care? Or you're not as messy as I and that's the trick? I really would like to cover my dull tiles with something like it.

Rinse potatoes and cook in lightly salted water.
When cooked, drain them, cool them under running water, cut into thick slices.
Lightly salt and pepper, put some heavy cream on every slice and garnish each with a teaspoon of caviar. Serve immediately.

I'm sure it was delicious, but that's not spanish churros at all, sorry. Never butter, no eggs. Of course no vanilla nor cinammon. You're appealing creation is more a pâte à choux, indeed or even mexican churros.

You can boil them with some potatos, the starch in potatos "neutralize" the inulin. Or if you prefer add a half teaspoon of baking soda in the water you use to boil them. It work's for us.

It's beautiful lovely cozy... but AT, really, can a room be really luxurious if one of the sleepers has to jump over the other to go in or out bed? Ou that's the reason why it's luxurious?
