P.s. I'm one of those people who love birds and I'm not ashamed to have several bird paintings in my home :)

How Do You Deal with Design Trends?
1/19/12 12:36 PM

I try not to follow trends. I either love something or don't. I'm not saying I've never seen something on AT and absolutely had to go out and buy it. It's just that I don't bring things into my home because it's in. I buy what I love and if millions of other people love it too that's fine. I don't immediately think, OMG I've got to find the next hot thing.

I love Sarah but I'm definitely not feeling this at all. Way too cliched. I expect more from a designer of her caliber.

And Rachel, please change the word from "recluse" to "refuge" as suggested by others.

I wasn't sure I would like this based on the first pics. I'm just not that into modern/contempo styling but Sabrina, this place is awesome! Great job! and as for @WandaR, look this isn't your apartment, it's Sabrina's and she is arranging her bed to suit her tastes. That doesn't mean she is opposed to looking outside. If she did she would live in a hole somewhere not in an apartment with huge windows and that have little window dressings.

Great idea! I have also been saving the numerous ribbons that my office uses for their innumerable party invitations.

I'm so incredibly sick of everyone "mourning" over Steve Jobs. Yes, I own Apple products, but I didn't know this man personally so his death did not leave me filled with distress as it so obviously did everyone else on this planet. Goodness, I figured since I'm not on the tech site I'd be able to get away from all this Jobs obsession, but somehow we've managed to insert him into one of my favorite blogs. People die. We all will at some point. But I hate when we act so heartbroken over people we don't even know. I find it upsetting and super fake. There. I've said my piece.

I've also added vinegar to water and had great results. Got that tip from a fellow customer at a big box store.

Swoon. Jenn, you are a beauty and so is your house :) You remind me of my favorite blonde electrician.

I actually prefer grocery shopping more than I do cooking. It's especially fun when its the type of store that carry specialty items like my local coop, farmers' market, whole foods or trader joes! My favorite time to shop is after 10 p.m. It's like a ghost town at the regular chain stores.

Laura, I love yellow and orange too! That's what I've got going on in my living/dining area. Really nice job on this one!

I also love the orange painting and how you put that large painting behind the TV.

Hey neighbor! I heart the quirky, community of Greenbelt and love visiting the movie theatre. I also love turquoise. It's one of my favorite colors.
