That's a big plus. I bought in a Chicago neighborhood right in the middle of two graduate schools so I know I can always rent it and move on to something else later if I wish.

AT keeps having these tours with these fabulous people, making me wish I knew them in real life. Alas, it is not to be. Heather, I echo the sentiments of the previous posters. Your place is fab and so is your hair. And your glasses. And your shoes.

This is one of those situations where anything you did would've been great because anything would've been an improvement.

5 Problems You Only Face While Living Alone (and How to Deal with Them)

I would remove #3 and replace it with the key thing. I just paid $100 to have a locksmith open my door after I locked myself out a few months ago. I own, so there's no landlord to call. I am the landlord :(

I work from home and I wouldn't get a single thing done if I had that sofa. Maybe a lot of napping. But no work.

There's a big difference between being snarky and being nasty and a lot of people have pole vaulted over that line. If you're unhappy with life, don't take it out on people willing to share their projects on the Internet. Gracious.

I keep the list of restaurants/boutiques I want to visit on Foursquare. When you go to your To-Do list on the app, it populates based on your location. If I'm out of town or in a new neighborhood and I want to find somewhere in the area to eat, I open my To-Do list and the closest restaurants will come up automatically.

I hate her :) Her office looks better than my home and I've lived here 5 years. Well done, Chelsea!

I agree lighter paint does a world of good. Does anyone else feel the range hood isn't proportionate? Not for looks-for actual ventilation.

Great reno! So happy to see people willing tackle these homes-it does wonders for property values. I'm curious to see more, too-specifically, I'd like to know where they got those gorgeous light fixtures :) I do hope they got the toxicity levels checked, too. That's so important.
