I agree with Cassis about the PS lockers. We have a white one in the living room and a red on a bedroom to store DVDs and other things. They're sleek yet a little quirky, but super cheap.

I also love the expedit. I have a 2X4 one that's great for storing my books as a well as fitting my stereo on top.

At our old apartments we would let everybody know that we were having a party and that they were welcome to come. Now in this apartment, we forgot to tell our neighbor so when my friends and I laughed too loud one night she decided to call my landlord in another state rather than come by and tell me. The next day I went to apologize and she only spoke to me through her screen door. I thought that was extremely rude.

All the dinner parties I go to involve drinking way too many bottles of wine/champagne so the night ends in sleepy laughter and people slouching in their chairs tipsy. I've never seen people being rowdy drunks at dinner parties, which would probably be a rather inconsiderate thing to do.

We waited for almost a month for our shower to be fixed. Otherwise, our landlord replaced our kitchen faucet within a week.

A friend of mine bought a bunch of disco ball ornaments a few christmas' past and he loves sticking them in random places around the house for fun.

Haha I love colored toilet paper! I was so tempted to steal a roll of the red toilet paper at Geisha House.

I buy organic food from Trader Joe's it's always come up cheaper than buying from a regular grocery store. I only buy cheese at Whole Foods, due to their great selection, but otherwise it's ridiculously expensive.

Like polkadot, the Ikea nightstand looks most like it and is only $30. I have two in white.

Wow, the nook by the stairs looks exactly like the one at my place. Same stairs, wall color, moldings, except that ours has a built-in shelf on the wall under the stairs.

I have the espresso cup ones (with the pretzels in it). They're such a great idea and they remind me of the disposable cups I used to get hot cocoa from in France as a kid. Haven't really gotten around so using them though.

I have the same bright blue bedding from Ikea. I was thinking of changing it, but the way you've mixed it up has inspired me to work with it. It's a lovely combo.
