^ So you picked your SF name after the random letters on your license plate? Weird.

Nice stable. Where are the servants who look after these beasts? Over the garage, right?

Can anyone recommend any interior design blogs, especially if geared toward small apartments? Thanks.

Not exactly geared toward small apartments, but it tells the story of a small house: http://chezerbey.com/

My old place, lived there for 2 years. It is a 13 unit condo building. The building was built in the later part of the 1800s. When I have enough money, I will for sure move in there again. Crazy thing is, even with the pool being heated it was cold. Seeing there is a river running below the building (so what I have been told). I'll post pictures of the unit I was in later, seeing I don't have access to FB from work.

Apartment Therapy is popular with the in crowd here, I think. Mordecai's apartment was featured on it once, IIRC.

I like the inspirational photo she posted with the repurposed ikea Stolmen pieces (not so crazy about the shit on top of it though). Too bad she is just another terrible blogger who has decided to infringe on the copyright of a bunch of other people without so much as a link to the source.

Thankfully with tineye I was able to find the photo posted on some french forum; the photo was linked from the image source of some german blog where I was able to try search terms until I found the post which then had a link to ikeahacker. On ikeahacker (a favorite of mine...I love using ikea stuff for purposes other than it was designed), there is a post in the comments describing how it was made in a little more detail.

I would consider doing something like this in my place or my next place (so long as I could wall mount without drawing too much hate from the landlord) but I'm not sure that they have the depth to fit my receiver and htpc...I'd have to buy bookshelf speakers to replace my floorstanding ones too.

Kinda harsh, man. Her blog is almost exclusively original content.

Sorry, didn't mean to devalue what she does with the house. The house actually looks great and they have done some crazy work to get it there.

It just irks me when people spit out a bunch of uncredited content. It's one thing to post a random image to a forum, but if you are going to be publishing a blog, at least turn the image into a clickable link to the source or something. When someplace like lifehacker makes a new image by photoshopping together parts of 3 different images...they still credit the original sources.

What's the size of that pool? From the scale of the steps it looks like about 2 metres wide and 4 or 5 metres long. Just enough room to swim about two strokes.

It was about 2 meters wide but I think it was more like 6 - 8 meters long.

A couple of pro photos that were just taken of our living room and kitchen for a very small local pub:





In the living room, in particular, there are a large number of decorating changes I'd like to make, but my budget does not allow many of them for the moment. I could go into them in detail, but probably would only sound defensive. I'll get there soon enough, probably laugh.gif

In the kitchen, the china hutch is original. All other cabinets, appliances, and the floor are new.

Love your kitchen.
