well this post was hugely disturbing. silly me for thinking there would be some revolutionary tips, like; get a laundry basket for your bedroom, or put up hooks behind the door, or purge!
But vacuum your sheets? seriously that is a gross suggestion and a poor indication of your hygiene.. what is so difficult about washing your bedding weekly?

So true. I had floor to ceiling open shelving in our first apartment and loved loved LOVED the convenience of seeing & using everything. Now i bend & squat endlessly to reach stuff in those awkward corner cupboards.
The next time we make them, we will put two sliding laminated glass/perspex doors to combat the dust issue. It was a small issue for me. small. now solved now.

seriously, theres nothing wrong with that unit.. its a blessing... use it as a small "home office".. sort your books by color gradient, add some stationary..nothing too cluttering.. thats such a help! def a home office..even if you hardly use it. having the designated space will help you get organized.

I feel sorry for my downstairs neighbor. My son LOVES to pop wheelies with his plastic bike on our wooden floors.. But we've managed to come around that. We hide the bike in the evenings, & he plays with it outside in the day. Other than that, we are a LIVING breathing HAPPY family.... so expect noise... we dance in our lounge, exercise there and watch movies on surround sound too.. not everyday, not all day, but some days & most wknds. And to my other neighbor who rev's his box bmw endlessly.... YOU GO BOY. If thats what gets you going for the day, il just accommodate it. lol (ps: this is in south africa)

my siblings live together, they're 2 yrs apart.. they've always been close and it works really well for them. me on the other hand... I'm much older, so nope, wouldn't work out. I'd be parenting and they'd be rebelling... DISASTER!
Im keen to see the interior style incorporating both siblings... thats what I thought id be seeing here... maybe later?
