pix = my own.

A little sneak peak at my 1 bdrm apartment. This is the living room. : )

I need to go back to Ikea and pick up some vases and plants. Unfortunately, with the bf in tow, it's usually a quick dash in, dash out visit!

It's sturdy I'm not planning on loading a bunch of crap on it anyway BTW I have been finding so many great things at Søstrene Grene, a cheap Danish store with lots of fun little things. I got the cutest little olive oil dispensers/drizzlers, chili oil and sweet preserved ginger. Love that store! They have a lot of cute stuff for the home, and it's cheaper than Ikea

I love your cubbies ... they would totally solve the storage problem I have in my home office. Do you mind sharing details?

here is a tiny little sneak peak into my apt... It's a long work in progress, the living room and den are beginning to come together but the bedroom is very bare. pics from our thanksgiving dinner. I am behind the flowers and the couple is my newly wed brother and his wife :p I dont have a dining room (1000 sq ft apt) so I put a fold out table over my 400 lb coffee table. The wingchairs are usually off to one side and the TV is over the fireplace which you cant see.

My apt is very colorful - the living room is turquoise and deep purple with grey, pink and yellow kitchen, green and brown bedroom. the little ledges you see are for the cats, they love climbing on them. The top one is long so they can sleep on it.

they are actually cheap Ikea "Expedit" bookcases. The smaller one was I believe $99CDN and the larger $149CDN. VERY useful for rental because they can be used as a room divider in a small space but still allow for light. I definitely DEFINITELY recommend them! The white ones have been used in many decorating magazines.

^ Love the white + texture, GG, in the chandelier & vase You are tantalizing us, you need to take some pix specifically of your interiors :p

I am working out of my home office now, so I had to order a real office chair. I'm getting a Humanscale Freedom Chair with headrest, titanium finish, in Flamingo Sensuede, which is a warm hot pink. Sensuede is like Ultrasuede, except green--it's at least 50% recycled. The chair has a lot of recycled content too.

It's the most amazing chair ... you sit down and it hugs you, and when you lean back, the headrest does the same for your head, and the whole chair automatically reconfigures. It hadn't been adjusted for me (but apparently for someone close to the same size), but when I got up, it was like I'd been to the chiropractor--my neck popped a few times, in a good way.

I think this picture is showing the titanium finish, but my armrests will be upholstered.

^ kismine, I know some people really like to live with the bright colors ... I really like color, but I stick with one eyepopping color per room, at most I have plum and purple in the living room, and then touches of soft green and rose. In the kitchen, red + jadite green. In the bedroom, tomato red is the accent color, but it's mostly tan/white/sage. My office is white + ivory so needs some color, thus the hot pink. YMMV though

We went to Ikea this afternoon & I picked up some sheer white curtains for the bedroom, which is what I was after... We're setting up a shade along that side of the house to block some of the sunlight/heat (as it's becoming slightly unbearable as the weather warms up) so I just wanted a little coverage for the inside... They're very pretty.


I think this will be the bed we'll end up buying...


And while we were out I fell in love with a cream coloured vintage alarm clock and a mirrored photo frame that I regret not buying! I'll have to go back and pick those up...

(ikea)

Here's what I got to solve the storage problem in my office ... it's a 1940s Belgian school desk. And the mirror is what I didn't get It was not going to solve any problems, it was just going to sit around & look beautiful--and that, of course, is my job :p
