>it is THE place to go for the Atlanta foodie.

Agree. Bizarrely, I'm about to leave to head over there to buy some truffle oil!

James, I checked - they said it was the building that had the substantial roof damage. They were on the 4th floor, and the worst of it was the 5th, apparently.

Thanks goodness!

I'm going to ask and then I will let you know. He said it sounded like a 767, hitting the building.

James, how did your place hold up in the tornado? I was shocked that there was no mention of the storm, or any damage. One of the seriously damaged units there belongs to a good friend of a friend of mine. They were devasted, but glad that it was a rental, not their own home.

It's nice to see both a close neighbor, (I live in Kirkwood), and a fellow ATL entry.

I work near this building, and I've always wondered what the apartments inside look like - cute!

thanks BS. I wish it was possible to photograph the poppies on the opposite wall better.

That's true. I did have open shelves in my last place, and it was a nightmare. I was constantly having to wash and rewash everything.

Since the voting is over, I wonder if it's kosher to put a link to my flickr site, where there are more pics of my place? (Just for viewing pleasure) :)

I love this place! I feel like the one downside to being an entrant in this contest is that it becomes harder to just kick bank and enjoy the entries, without comparing your own place, to see how it measures up. But, I could totally see myself living here. I'm a big white fan.

Music and books are not shown, because there is not attractive storage units yet - cd's and books are still in (discrete) boxes, almost a year after move in - yikes!

Nope, no porch there. It's French Doors, but just a Juliette balcony.

Yes, the bathroom sink was put in during the renovation - I will say, I love all the glass, but having no storage in a bathroom has not been easy. I'm continually working with figuring out storage that looks good, and works well. I currently have stainless stell rollcarts that go under the sink, but I'm not 100% pleased with them.

One more thing - I've gotten some emails asking me about the big pink print over the TV - it's Warhol's take on a Life Saver's ad, from the late 60's.

Miss Bliss here, thanks everyone for the comments.

I have been in my condo for just under a year. The building was a massive conversion from what basically was a crumbling apartment building, with squatters, and everything! I am the first resident, since the renovation, for this unit.

I still have things that need to be worked on. The bonus area in need of some stylish *and* effective storage solutions. In the model unit, they have an IKEA system - a glass computer desk, connected to steel rods, with a clothes rack, and shelving.

I have two chihuahuas, and as you might guess from the art, one is blonde, one is black. They give the home a lot of its liveliness and heart!

The eucalyptus over my bed is to counteract any stuffiness and odors. It freshens the air in there, quite well, but I don't always have it hanging.

Thanks again for your votes and feedback - I've been waiting to be even *close* to entering since '05. Hopefully next year I can come back, even stronger!

I love it too! I am the one who posted my bedroom during bedroom month, with the branches of eucalyptus over my bed. Now I may try this too.

I totally agree mh330 - it's water, not soap, or an anti-bacterial - that is *not* hygenic. Baby wipes, or toilet wipes are much better, if not really greener.

I agree about the guy's parents. That wasn't very nice: "The bride's dad is rich, and gave them a boatload of money. The husband comes from poor folk, and gave them $300 bucks each". Sheesh.
