Apartment Therapy

Yes, I have a degree in Interior Design. Yes, I work at a service center for a bank. Let's not get into it. The extent of my design work is my digs, and spending friends' and family money while shopping. "OH, that would look perfect in your bathroom! No, not that. That's ugly. The other thing." I follow a few design blogs (decor porn, to me), and got some inspiration to photoshop pics of my place. It looks much better photoshopped. (The cat hair has been airbrushed out.) My apartment was built in 1935, original Linoleum, hardwoods, original toilet, cast iron sink, metal kitchen cabinets in near mint condition, light fixtures, etc, etc.

LIVING ROOM: Blogging central and "studio"

KITCHEN: Drippy faucet and lots of empty wine bottles

Metal cabinets: Once a flour bin and fridge

BATHROOM: Mostly soap scum and cat litter

BOUDOIR: Mostly cat hair

Reasons for cat hair:

I'M IN LOVE WITH :::HOMEBODIES::: (Voyeurism, I'm sure) Great concept, Liz!
{LUPHIA LOVES....} She is just too cute
The Paris Apartment (Need I say more?)
Laissezfaire Interesting, quirky, inspirational photos and blogs
A Field Journal Pretty photos for inspiration. Her blog is like...cupcakes!
Poetic Home Cool name, cool stuff
Apartment Therapy 'cuz I borrowed their name
Picnik Free and fun photo editing

Yo, the niece wants her room redone to celebrate starting junior high. She's been caressing paint chips for a week. I think you should plan an extreme makeover vacay for the summer.

LOVE it. I can't decide if my favorite detail is the cut-out for the phone or the kitchen faucet.... This is part of what I mean when I say I want a do-over. Never had my own place. aaarrrggghhh.

There's such a thing as a degree in interior design? The world as I know it has just expanded to giant proportions... so has the amount of cat hair in my house. (cat hair needs to go somewhere... just like socks.)
