Great use of bright color art and furnishings instead of painting walls.

Where is the tapestry in the kitchen from?

Eclectic I'm with you! I ordered some Flor cause it looks cool in the catalog and online... but in person i thought it felt cheap and looked tacky. I ate the shipping and sent it back.

I really like EricaHD's bathroom rule and great points Trish1980. I'm 24 and find it rude in alot of circumstances.

.... I might just have to text the bathroom rule to my tech addict friends. I laugh picturing the text arriving during a lunch and the look on their face as the realization hits (your welcome lunch buddy).

Oh man.. I know the spelling is horrendous. I've become to reliant on the red underlining of my mac at home.

I love analogys...

I have a crane and lots of money. I hire an intern who comes up with a good project idea. I put my crane and money to work on the project. At completion it was my resourses and capital that were on the line, and rightfully so I should get to put my name on the project (it's likely the intern's idea would have gone nowhere without me). The intern gets to put the successful project on his/her resume. Hopefully for the intern he/she isn't a one hit wonder and goes on to devolop more, maybe even getting an intern of their own.....

Ikea is a trash store polluting our planet with throw away everything. It makes me sick that on any given Saturday the store/warehouse is packed full of people taking away cheap crap that will be in a land fill in 2 years. The world already has tons of stuff in it, go to a thrift store and make a find or put a little love into a piece to refresh it instead or encouraging Ikea to produce more press board and veneer junk.

This reminds me of a posting about what decorating items are out, (ie. antlers, etc). The best part of the article were the posts after condemning trendy decorators (people who buy plastic antlers from pottery barn) and promoting decorating as a statement of yourself and what you like, not replicating a page of an ikea catalog. This kind of trendy and of the moment decorating is not only completely unoriginal but extremely wasteful. I bet I could go to the Goodwill tomorrow and find a bunch of plastic antlers or whatever was the trend that is now out. Ikea promotes this same wasteful decorating and I'm sure that ugly metal moose will end up at Goodwill in droves as well.

The only top find at an Ikea is the exit.
