Wow, that is one of the coolest houses I've ever seen. I would love to visit! :) And that blue couch is stunning.

So, so lovely and relaxing. Whatever happens in the contest, this is my favorite of them all. :)

I think that's the most beautiful kitchen I've ever seen.

As others have said, these kitchens are not small at all. They're all bigger than my kitchen, and I thought my kitchen was pretty big for a small LA apartment.

I have had enough of these posts as well. This one is kind of gross, has nothing to do with design, and it's kind of insulting to get lectured on these things.

Anybody wants to read the original post just do a google search on "the Rights and Wrongs of Paint Colors" and they have the cached version there.

Does anybody know of any wall decals that will stick to glossy paint? Most of the websites seem to say the surface should be perfectly flat and preferably matte, but my walls are both glossy and somewhat uneven. :( If not, I don't know what to do as we're not allowed to paint.

I absolutely loved the way they looked before - I love aged wood. So sick of boring white paint jobs :(

My favorite street names I've lived on were Briarwood Dr., Grace St., and my current apartment on Las Palmas Ave.

Looks great, and labor intensive! Especially with that twist in the middle.

Hey, I would not be embarrassed about having a Patrick Swayze poster! I believe I had a Michael Bolton one I got for free somewhere. Gross!

This post is absolutely insane! Clothes/sheets do NOT need to be washed in hot water to get rid of germs and clean them. That's what laundry detergent is for. Before it was invented, people did indeed BOIL their laundry to get it clean.

Also, my ex-roommate really did wash her towels every day. I wouldn't be surprised if she did the sheets too. So even though we had a washing machine in the apartment, I was almost never able to use it as every day her stuff was in it. Not to mention the effect on the environment and the electric bill! Aren't you normally fairly clean at the time you're using a towel? Unless it's a gym towel I suppose...

And the salt/pepper shaker post was hilarious. What do you do, rub the shaker itself all over your meat?

Yay, trapeze! I've been taking trapeze classes and I love them. But I would never want to sit on this floor either, way too high over the floor.

k_darling, I don't think that's odd at all. I always have to go around the whole bed in a hotel to untuck the sheet. Otherwise it feels way too constraining, I can't move my feet and I can't sleep

If you just want to have the magazines nearby and not displayed, why not try one of those end tables with the built in magazine holders? I've seen some beautiful mid century ones.

That drawer freaks me out - it's so shallow, it would be very easy to start knocking things off it; not to mention an earthquake. How do those spools of thread lying on their sides not just roll right off?

Yes, why do they insist on using only the pronoun "we" even when it makes them sound like polygamists?

Yeah, it seems like the cabinets would be easier to use if they opened from the top. Otherwise you'd have to hold them open while getting to the stuff inside.
