Gorgeous...anyone know what the price range is for the Duralee fabrics?

I think this could work nicely if you go for an eclectic, Anthropologie-esque vibe. Definitely consider the context, but if you like it, go for it! Don't listen to the naysayers!

I've been there! The bathrooms are really amazing in person. And yes, there are stalls with actual walls and doors - that was likely a "just painted" photo.

We're actually in the market for doormats for our front and back doors. (Yuck, winter.) I like (not love) the first monogrammed one, but it seems pricey for something that is going to sit on the floor and hold dirty, wet boots.

Anyone see any great budget-friendly options recently?

After a long search, my fiancee and I finally found and ordered the Dean sofa from West Elm. We loved the style and color, and it was comfy to sit in at the store. We like the short arms b/c it's nice for lying down.

However, after reading some older posts on West Elm's quality, we're a bit concerned about it lasting. Room and Board prices are a bit steep for us, but we do want our sofa to last a few years. Anyone have any good experiences with West Elm? We really liked the sofa and don't want to cancel our order, but don't want to waste $1,000, either...

Definitely try Rummikub. It's a thinking game and is SO addictive!

We were just introduced to Apples to Apples when a friend brought it over to our dinner party last week. So much fun!

I had this brilliant plan to make a coat hook utilizing drawer pulls from anthropologie. I haven't quite made this happen yet, but still think it could be a creative solution...

Sorry for chiming in late - I have been swamped at work, and when I finally got a free moment to check out Apartment Therapy this week, I was pleasantly surprised to see our landing strip idea had been posted!

Matt M. - The box is from Bed Bath & Beyond

Traderdi - Thanks for the upside-down suggestion - I think we might buy a few more and use one for flowers. I like the idea of creating a small vignette.

Everyone - Thanks for the comments and suggestions! We will resume our work this weekend (after catching up on some sleep) and keep you posted on how it turns out!
