We just bought a Danish credenza last week (unfinished particle board on the back) and cut out not one but three holes for all our media components (three shelves, no way to cut only one hole). I don't feel bad about it a bit! I don't anticipate reselling the piece and if we changed its use someday (unlikely), we can just put a new piece of particle board on the back.

Costanoa is wonderful. I don't think the lodge rooms are worth the high rates, but the tent bungalows are amazing, with wonderful little touches like Aveda bath products and a down comforter. It can get cold at night though!

I think the French sign would not make any sense to those who do not speak French. Since the purpose of having the sign is actually to warn people about a dog rather than have a cute-looking sign, I'm not sure this solves the original problem.

I bought a Valencia sleigh bed from Pottery Barn after a long search identical to yours. Beds that take both box spring and mattress are just insanely hard to find and I hate that the platform bed thing has completely taken over at every store.

I love my bed, it's very high up but I like climbing into bed.

Crate and Barrel does indeed have good quality. I just bought a chair and ottoman, and in the process, sat on almost every couch in the show room. I liked the Camden - it's obviously not a super-cushy couch, but that is the design. I think it's a good value.
