is there a dish rack (or one of those sloping mats) out "there" that drains on the narrow end?

We bought an IKEA Säter Sofa, today! Does anyone have experience owning one?

I'm curious how they hold up over time. So far we are happily surprised how comfy it is (leather sofas being new to us) and we love the clean lines and legs creating more visual floorspace than our old sofa. One thing though, it really annoys me to have a sofa with sewn on cushions that I can't flip so I'm thinking to cut them loose.

Also any ideas of ottomans for the Säter?

But it all depends on the way they are used, I can easily see them used in super tacky ways like at a cheezy restaurant, esp at that price.

They're more interesting than all the cartoon-ish animal lamps/decor/etc on the market. And I love that they are painted all black.

We have these (headless) dog speakers at my office.. They creep some people out but I think they're cool and I love dogs.

i'd keep it simple & fresh with: mozzarella, garlic & white wine sauteed portobello, slivers of spicy pepper, sprinkle of freshly grated parmesan cheese.

panini pressed bread is my fav, my toaster would be sooo jealous.

Question: How did you hang the windows above the bed? (They must be heavy)

Many cute ideas!

I've been looking for something like this. Other window films are boring, I've considered using wall decals for my problem but this is it!

The 1st place I desperately need it is on my glass shower doors (just the bottom half) so I won't be so bashful when my boyfriend wants to use the sink while I'm in the shower. (I'm sure I could eventually work through this but we just moved in together and I'm shy.)

I'd also try it on a cylindrical clear straw holder that I often use as a vase.

Any scraps from those projects I'd put to use on CD cases. I often give gifts of mix CDs but my fav part is designing the packaging :)

The best bet is bring pantone chip or color swatch to have the paint store color match and mix it. Even Home Depot will do that - but I'd trust elsewhere first, where the REAL pros work, especially if you are really picky. This way if you are unhappy with it you can have them adjust or it will be easier to fix by hand.

I had a paint debacle recently (glidden paint from HD) one room I mixed paint by hand - but I wasn't going for an exact color mix like you. What I learned from it was:

1. If you do ever have to mix by hand, buy a BIG bucket & mix ALL the paint you need it at once. (a must)

2. Also if you want to buy brand "A" paint but color matched to a chip from brand "B" they won't do it if the store sells both brands. In that case I'd suggest matching to a pantone chip or try to remove branding.

3. If I had trusted my initial instinct as a designer, I would not have been in that mess!

4. I prefer Behr over Glidden.

best of luck!

I'm in! I've stared reading the book and collecting inspiration.

The boyfriend and I just moved into a new construction apt with beige tiled floors - in every room! So white and sterile feeling, I miss the wood floors and molding of our old apts, so I'm trying to bring some of that coziness here.

We love having friends over, I can't wait to celebrate with them at the end of our cure!
