Imperfection rules! These are lovely. I especially like the creamy-white ones.

@ arroyo:
Well, AT says to "email your question w/pic attachments... those w/pics get answered first."

So, why would one assume that this is NOT a pic of the apt. in question?

Oh, that little metal IKEA table! I bought a red one years ago, when they came in cool colors (now only white, alas, according to the website) and it has travelled the world with us, serving in kitchens, front porches ... They used to make a 2-tiered plant stand along the same lines/material... sadly discontinued. Anyway, at 20 bucks the table is a steal.

"We think the world can be split into two groups..."

Reminds me of a Tom Robbins quote. Something like: "There are two kinds of people in the world: those who think there are two kinds of people in the world, and those who are smart enough to know better."

Apropos of nothing: that's a cute little house.

This poster has long been known for his apparent 'less is more' philosophy when "writing" posts.

Liking those metal (?) grates leaning in some of the windows, and also the porch. The wall-lessness, however, would drive me crazy.

The colors, the undulating banner hung from the hall ceiling, the whole wabi-sabi-ness of it all. Love. Love, love, love.

@postagenotes:
For reasons known only to the poster, the 'before' picture was chosen to represent what was originally in the poster's apt.

Whether that was the actual switchcover or not is irrelevant. It is still valid for people to say which one they prefer, between the two images offered.

1. When you are carrying drinks on a tray, look straight ahead -- NOT at the drinks on the tray.

2. When you are chopping onions, place the cutting board on an UNLIT gas burner in front of a LIT (on low) gas burner. The back burner will burn off the fumes and you will not get watery eyes.

3. Use "it's" only when you can substitute "it is" or "it has." Otherwise, use "its" (w/out the apostrophe. There are no exceptions to this rule.

I'm w/gypsymomma. The 'before' has a nice retro vibe.

I admire your plants and your finials and your ceramics and your artwork. But, most of all, I admire your bravery for having a full-length mirror in the bathroom! :-)

Oh, and that Paul Klee print -- my parents had that same one, in the house where I grew up in the 1950's.

I believe the French say that it is better to have bad taste than no taste at all.
