Wow, nudes in general never occurred to me to be a problem. I have a fair number in my apartment.

I do keep more sexual art out of public places because I'm very aware of what survivors of sexual violence can find triggering, which includes some friends, and I wouldn't want my living room to be uncomfortable. I have a traditional Indian drawing in my living room that has uncovered breasts, and a print of a torso, but anything with sprawled figures on beds is in my room. I think it's important to remember that a guest's discomfort might not just be prudishness.

The line drawings above I'd still probably feel okay putting in public, but I might refrain - just to avoid stupid comments and my ensuing annoyance.

This is by far my favorite apartment tour.

So many beautiful pieces, all clearly loved, and practically arranged.

Like others have said, it reminds me of some places I visited in Europe, that kind of serene luxurious feel that comes with only have beautiful and necessary things.

I'm seconding puella.

Can we stop talking status? Heck, can we stop talking about judging the worth of Ikea?

It's very hard to play nice on the internet and not call nasty names when we end up talking about money.

And in the end, that's what this just boils down to. And it's offensive.

It's posts like these that make me read AT less and less.
