@Suzee This not my place (I wish) but speaking from experience dealing quite well with a loft with only 3" clearance (floor to ceiling), unless you are like 7" tall, 5" should be more than enough.

I love the collection of little doors above the living room windows. It's a such a random collection to have but it works.

I love your blindingly red kitchen. Just walk in there in the morning and I bet you never need coffee! (I'm sincere, btw)

I like the "gallery" idea and might use it in my next place, as I have tons of artwork and stuff for the walls.

I like the simplicity. With such a tiny place, I feel like if there was much more going on it could feel claustrophobic.

Maybe by the time the wall thing gets moldy they'll have enough empty rolls to make a new one.

I think I might take down a nude artwork if, say, I knew my conservative grandparents were coming over, and if it was also a large and imposing piece (we have's currently in the laundry room) and if it was in the sitting area. I wouldn't enjoy having to do this but I wouldn't want it to be a distraction, since I don't see them too often. But in general, I would not want to tailor my home decor to other people's tastes. Then again, most of the people who would be visiting us are artsy types who would not be offended.

"Gentleman's Loo"...I love it! Very creative. I love it when people take something crappy and turn it all around!

I heard that when repotting rootbound plants, rather than treating the roots with kid gloves, you're supposed to take a pair of scissors and sort of snip at them a bit, otherwise they will "think" they are still in the same pot and continue to grow in the rootbound shape. Any thoughts on this, anyone?

Now I know what to use the cutlery organizer for that I just found in the neighbours' garbage.

Some things I just have to live with, though. His giant light-up poster of his old band is something he'd probably miss.

My boyfriend basically trusts me to do the decorating, including with his stuff (or is it that he just doesn't care? can never get that one right...). If I disagree with some change he's made to the overall look, I usually just let him have his way and then secretly change it back about a week later (assuming it's something minor). He never notices.

My boyfriend and I already have separate bedrooms and beds, but on the nights when we share a bed, it's separate blankets all the way. I'm a light sleeper, and feeling someone moving and tugging on my blanket would keep me up.

I listen to the static between radio stations. Radios with digital tuners seem more consistent. It helps me sleep better AND is easy on the wallet.
