^ OMG so true

And I have the exact same issue ... I have two Shelties, one mahogany sable, so the fur ranges from white to brown to mahogany, and one blue merle, with white, grey, black, and tan. The white is quite visible on my purple sofa ... and needless to say they can shed visibly on whatever I might be wearing.

One of my coworkers doesn't have dogs because she wants her house just so ... apparently she's always running around disinfecting What a loss, is what I think ... luckily I was never a perfectionist housekeeper to begin with :p

My sofa is slipcovered ... when the dogs really make a mess I send that piece to the cleaners. When people are coming over I whip out the lint roller. When no one's coming over I remove the large chunks

Oh, I am also careful of what I'm wearing when I sit on the sofa--see the "What to wear when you're slumming" thread ...

Well, I was getting a bit sick of alle the vintage furniture...mostly because it was so heavy to move around. I did keep some of my stuff, and he does love the table and the mirror. Because I tell him to

I think our decorating styles went really well together - he decided some pieces, I decided other pieces, and it cam out really good

I'm sure Panda will try to kill him someday...

Oh btw ta-ta my parents have the same problem with my dog...he sheds like crazy in every colour you can think of So they just learned to live with dog hair all over their clothes, the house and the car. Actually I still find dog hair in my appartment even though it's been 6 months since my dog was here

Well, I'm sort of stuck at a design crossroads, lol. My style floats between very very simple and basic, dark wood, white bedding, colours like olive green/dark dusky pink etc. with a bit of a romantic flavour... and the direction it's headed now is more towards the romantic side of things - faded wood, delicate printed bedding, lighter pastel colours etc. It's hard to explain... Anyway, I'm thinking I'm going to have to stick to my original feel for design, as this is our new house:



(please ignore my mum, nephew and brother in law out the front, lol)

This is the style I am headed towards....


mayorsmansioninn.com

I think this would suit perfectly...


freshome.com

I actually think something like this would be a nice compromise...


housetohome.co.uk

ps: I just love this


trendir.com

I would love this...


parisapartment.files.wordpress.com

I am currently lusting over a lot of things on this website

I love the room with the red roses and the room with all the teddies. Oh, and thanks for the link. It looks like a good place to find inspiration for what I would like my home to look like.

I've moved around a lot in my life - I've lived in about twenty different homes. So...because of that I don't really get that into decorating. I am a serious believer in really minimalist (but 'homey') pieces and also having as little clutter as possible! I think space management is really interesting too - and neurotically organized closets...:p

Hmm, I dont have control over the rest of my house. Since I alone dont decorate it.

But my room consists of an antique, carved wooden closet with a mirror.
A divan with pillows.
A heavy wooden bed with black glass.
An antique, carved desk for me to work on.

A small board to tack things on. Some paintings - mostly engravings.

Thankfully my fiance lets me make most of the decisions and he pretty much likes everything I've picked out. At various points when we've been at stores picking things out, the sales people have remarked on how well we come to a decision together. Usually we both sort of end up finding the same item and both liking it
