The sense of scale in this apartment is just perfect. Perfect.

You gave this apartment its self-respect back. I hope you win.

I love this so much. The bright primary colors, the shelving in the kitchen, that gorgeous bed. A real stand out in this division, well done.

I adore all the character and personality that are in the spaces this year! Also, your couch, I want it.

I just can't stop looking at it. So beautiful. Congrats on restoring that gorgeous old tub.

I have a simple wooden desk that belonged to my father as a boy. I'm short and many, many desks are just too tall or otherwise oversized for me.

A little Dorothy Gale, a little Rene Magritte. I like them.

It seems normal to me. Not like a 'statement' or anything, just normal. I grew up in a house with major book overflow, so books ended up in every nook and cranny. In grad school, any of my friends who had non-working fireplaces had their extra books stored there too.

I don't have a fireplace, but if I did, my books would be in it.

Do. Or rather, anything, anything but bright white. In gray Cleveland, where I would never dare paint the walls white, white on the ceiling gives birth to all sorts of gray shadows and dark corners. It's like having a cloudy sky overhead to match the one outside.

I hate to agree, because I love the content, but the re-design is much too busy. Sidebars -everywhere- and then ribbons on top of it all?

I like mint all right, better to wear than on the walls. I have dark skin with yellow undertones and I find it very flattering.

Getting back to design, green is my favorite color. I really want to paint my bedroom a dark shade but it gets only middling light and I worry I'd turn it into a cave.

For me, all subway tile summons up memories of my old school gym and cafeteria (especially when done with dark grout.) I honestly cannot figure out what the fuss is all about.

Dark without being dreary, earthy, elemental. When the space is large like this, I appreciate this kind of dark, discrete design.

Tempur-pedics seem to be the choice for people with my disorder (where rolling over in bed can cause a shoulder or hip to partially or fully dislocate.) But like you, I dislike memory foam and all the heat it retains.

For that reason, the next mattress I buy will probably be one with plenty of natural materials.
