Have an issue with #3: Why take everything out of a container to put into another container?

1. If you keep everything in the box it came in then it is already pre-labeled and even has an image of what it belongs to on the box.

2. Easier to stack and organize boxes on a closet shelf than a bunch of wilty bags. Also, no need to pull any bags out to see what's written on them, just glance up at your boxes picture for what you need.

3. Keeps one more box and inserts out of the landfill.

4. Much nicer to re-sell items still in their original box and packaging.

Interesting to see how each of these was paired up with white walls and lighter tones. The hue is such a great Earth tone I guess it could get lost in a different color scheme... Nice to see natural colors given a chance to "pop" instead of having to rely on bright oranges or reds or neons... :)

Quick question: I wonder how much Caryl Stern, President/CEO of UNICEF, paid for her mattress? I mean, gosh, she only makes about $480,000 a year? Poor lady, I wonder if she even sleeps on a bed? I could only imagine how hard her floors must feel in the wood shack she must surely live in.

I agree with tekcor. This is not a "calibration" of an SSD, this is more of an "optimization". When you calibrate something you configure a device so that it meets a higher set standard, when you optimize something you configure a device so that it performs as effectively as possible. Also, not sure how disabling defrag in Windows constitutes a calibration of the device for the OS, it's more changing the OS to suit the device.

Thanks for the tips, but what a terrible looking apartment to use as an example.

@Wormy: I didn't even notice those pipes, but now that I do, what would you think if each one of those pipes were colored a bright hue? I can see each pipe being a Bright Red, Green, Yellow would give it a bit of an artistic pop.

Love the furniture, their layout and the editing. Love everything but the flooring, a darker wood would make the whites pop and not make everything seem so whitewashed. But that's a very, VERY minor Nitpick.

Love the design, just wish it didn't have the opening on the top. Would make a great bedside carafe but the thought of dust getting in it isn't appealing...
