I use gallon-sized Ziploc bags much like the Space Bags you see on television. Depending on the trip and what I am taking, I separate clothing into like items (shirts together, pants together, etc.) or outfits. Then, I pack the bundles into the bags and press all the air out before sealing them. Besides saving space, this protects the clothing from leaking bottles or spills and keeps the suitcase very organized.

I once packed four ball gowns, four days of street clothes, stage makeup, jewelry, and two pairs of shoes into a carry on bag, and still had room for souvenirs.

...because I want to suddenly drop what I'm doing and rush to find out where I packed the vases?

It is very creative, and well done. If I were putting it in my own home, I would go with one sink, and keep the butcher block surface. But well done, either way.

I don't think the toilet shot is horrible.

Just stupid.

Incredible use of space. I love the sense of style, even if I would want a bit more color.

I love this. I can't see a single thing I wouldn't want in my own home.

"Of for godssake, it's a STYLE board. Meant for inspiration. Jeez."

I guess I'm not inspired by collages. I'd rather see a real room.

"It's a product and style round up, and it's an ongoing feature the editors/writers have been doing for some time now. Last month, it was fantasy bathrooms."

I can understand collecting many modes of a certain product, such as bookshelves or dividing screens, in order to compare them and see the pros and cons of different styles.

I can understand posting pictures of very inspirational rooms.

This is neither. It is a collection of the editor's dream-loft wish list, poorly photo-shopped together. Any sense of proportion is lost, and it becomes difficult to gauge the real effect these pieces would have together because it looks like a kindergarten collage instead of a room.

$5,000?

Huh. Might as well just buy one for yourself.

Very lovely.

My FAVORITE feature, however: that you posted the viewpoints for all your photographs! Thank you for doing that--it makes it so much easier to see how your apartment fits together.

"mattymatt-- I normally don't comment on comments...but FREE RANGE PET RATS? Are you serious?!"

My biology teacher kept free range rats in our class in high school. They "did their business" in a designated area, and otherwise were just good company. And smart!

English tidbit:

"Tufted Trompe L'oeil Headboard" should be "Trompe L'oeil Tufted Headboard."

The first implies that the headboard is painted on the wall, then still actually tacked and tufted. The second means the tufted headboard is completely painted.

When I first read the title, I was rather confused... :)

"I was a little confused at first as to why this was on Apartment Therapy and not Unplggd- was it supposed to be there?"

I'm wondering, too. This is a site about homes and apartments--and has a sister site for technology. Was this just to brag about a new toy?

- Reposts from THIS site
- Weekly summaries
- "This blogger was just wondering..." posts
- Anything where the blogger calls herself "we"

"i thought everyone in dubai WAS WEALTHY except for workers who were brought in various projects."

Sadly, this is a very, VERY wrong assumption.
