I'm with lefty on the Foo apt. It isn't working for me.

I was actually quite surprised to see the weird globes on the wall with vegetation. Seems like an odd novelty item.

"gender-theory porn" seems like an intriguing idea. Popular Mechanics? Boys Life? American Rifleman?

I know you are replacing the chair, but I like how the brown wood appears against the rug and works with all of the white/cream. It provides a nice contrast in color and texture without being the pop of color that some have suggested and which I agree with you that the room does not need. My personal preference may have been to go wood with the coffee table, but, I understand what you are doing here.

Also, the rug does look nice.

I agree. I like the new chair as well, but there is something very nice about this.

that was my favorite view of the whole place, the one where it seemed to balance best ... for me. but then i expect foo would turn and run if he walked into my living room. though i would allow him to keep his shoes on for a speedy exit.

A trite novelty item. I believe "fuck your novelty plant balls" was the second post on fuckyournoguchicoffeetable when it started.

I am reluctantly coming to agree with this. If the room had a little more visual interest, I don't think it would really be a problem. But the room is so visually bland. There are only two non-white elements and they are sitting on top of each other demanding that you compare them.

I just can't reconcile the fuzzy, fringey rug with the clean lines and austere pallette of everything else.

Bare floors are the way forward.

Rooms are not life, they are backdrops for it.

The contrast of the fuzzy rug to the clean lines is my favorite element of the room.

But so furry and covering what appears to be a perfectly nice floor?

Au contraire, mon ami. Rooms are the canvas on which we paint the colors of our life.

Foo must be true to his inner sense of pattern-matching if he wishes to have any hope of living honestly.

I have no idea what this means. Carry on, though.

Sorry. It doesn't really mean anything. I thought we were trading yoda-like aphorisms.

My point was not meant to be cryptic. People add color and life to rooms, which is why it strikes me as strange when there are complaints about uninhabited rooms not having enough color. Not that there is anything wrong with color, it is just that it is only lacking in a white room before the room has people, and when there are no people, who cares.
