Great idea! How did you screw in the hooks? Did you need to drill holes first? Or did you just poke it through the felt, press hard, and screw by hand?

Oh, man. That sunken tub reminds me of the sunken toilets in a lot of Asian public restrooms. Ew.

I don't recommend putting wine or liquor up there. The heat from the fridge could alter the flavor.

Febreze really does work wonders. Also, when I cook greasy stuff, I shut all the bedroom windows... keeps the smells contained to the kitchen and living room (which has no door). You can also boil citrus peels and water on the stovetop.

I'd keep the pillows and give away the bag and notebook. Love Amy Butler!

My cousin bought one of these and it's lovely, really soft (I'd give it an 8) and I don't think it sheds. For a lower price point, we bought the PB Henley rug http://www.potterybarn.com/products/p1649/index.cfm?pkey=cprwrugwoo which I'd give a 7 on softness. It sheds a bit, but not too much. We've had it for about 6 weeks now, and it's shedding a lot less than when we first got it.

Please, can you tell me where you got that red, round side table? I love it!

Lovely space. In fact, the space is so large, have you considered segmenting it a little more? I can't quite tell from your photos, but it seems like you have a small dining table with a couple chairs. Maybe get a larger table and create a larger dining area within the living room.

Another suggestion -- if it is a working fireplace, maybe you don't want the back of the purple couch to face it.

Wait. Did you say that's a PIED-A-TERRE?!?!?! Which means it's empty most of the time? A travesty!

I actually bought this litterbox from Skymall and really like it. When I lived in NY, there's no way I would have had the space for it, but my bathroom in DC is nice and roomy and there is plenty of space. Sure beats the purple plastic dome we were using before from PetSmart.

Why not try FLOR? You can build it to size.

Hi Opal -- I'm 5'1" too, and have the same problem. I did not know until I walked into a DWR a couple months ago, that Herman Miller Aeron chairs actually come in three sizes. I'd sat on the traditional "B" size before and didn't find it that great. But then when I spotted the "A" size and sat on it, it was soooo comfortable. I was really tempted to get one but still think they're too expensive. You might be able to find one on eBay though.

As far as sofas go, I've given up. My boyfriend is 6'5" and I figured it's probably better to have something oversized that's comfortable for him, that I can just flop into and lie down on as opposed to actually sitting upright. Throw pillows, my friend, throw pillows. I did find a nice mid-century chair off someone on Craigslist that has a smaller seat pan and is closer to the floor. That works well for me. Maybe look for something vintage, when they made furniture for people who had a shorter average height than people do today?

nice, but isn't it basically like sprinklers?

Deborah -- thanks for the DC upholsterer recommendation!

Desk -- I can't vouch for whether they're any good or not, but there are a bunch of antique shops along Rt. 9 in Hyde Park, between Poughkeepsie and Rhinebeck.

God, I miss NY.
