Any idea where the art hanging above the sofa is from? Images 1 and 2?

I agree with the height of the paintings. The room is missing something "ugly" or "different" Every beautiful room needs something that doesn't go with it. I know that sounds contradictory but it works.. For your room I might suggest something round or textured.
I love minimal/clean but that doesn't mean you can't layer items.

Add a a few books, a fiddle head ficus tree in a ceramic or metal pot and you need something whimsical and antiquey on the window sill, such a printers block. Put things you love in the room and over time, it will look great.

Don't worry... it's an easy fix.

If the eggs have never been refrigerated then you can leave them at room temperature for up to three weeks.
But if you buy refrigerated eggs you should keep them cold...

Stir some of the crushed cereal into some melted chocolate and mold in a shallow pan, place some fleur de sel or some kosher salt on before it sets and then you have some yummy dessert. If you wanna gild the lily, you can add some nuts or dried fruit to it.
I made this with corn flakes and added crisp bacon bits and served it in a pool of creme anglais for my friend's birthday. He was happy.

muji... the japanese answer to traveling and toiletries.

I find when i have a smaller container, I use less product. Good for the wallet and better for the environment.
They have sizes that work for an overnight, a week and even at home.

When i was kid, my neighbor was a WACKY PACKY collector. He overlapped them on his bedroom door (both sides) His dad used a sealant and it was super cool. The funny story is about 5 years ago I ran into and told him how I remembered the door and he told me, when his parents retired and sold the family home, he took the door and now it's the door to his 11-year old son's door (in a new house)

I agree with ubi. Poor quality. Artificial feel and taste in the mouth.

I however very much enjoy TJ Semi-sweet baking chips/morsels.

Odd, huh.

this is a fabulous idea! i knew a landscape architect who used to walk up a hill weekly dropping different wild flower seeds. months later you could see pathways of yellow flowers one month and then another pathway of purple flowers the next month! it was wonderful to look at.

I have had mine for few years now and still love it.
It's firm, never looks sloppy.

I found this on amazon and love it...
It really cleans the stove top well. Gets the spilled and burnt sauce off the stove top!
