They come in a wide range of shades, and their undertones can compliment or clash with another color depending on whether the neutral is warm or cool. Wood is usually a warm neutral with red undertones, while metal has cool blue underlying it.
Hello AT,. Is there any way to make this bed look more modern or contempary? Email questions & pics with QUESTIONS in subject line to: sf(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)comLink To All Good Questions. We'd try painting the whole bed frame white and then dessing the bed simply, in a neutral palette, to move it towards a more modern, minimal look. Think of a loft or gallery space: with all the architectural details painted the same shade as the walls, the room quiets down and becomes a canvas for other things. Treated similarly the detail work on your bed won't disappear, but it will lose visual importance.
Hello AT,I'm going to be remodeling my 6x5 bathroom here in Minneapolis where a bathtub remains important for resale. I've been looking for some small tubs online, but unfortunately everything i can find is only made in Europe with no real shipping to the US. Are you aware of any manufacturers or retailers in the US or that ship here that would sell a small tub? I'd prefer a semi corner tub so the room doesn't feel quite so small and have more room for storage as we don't have a closet, either.
If I were to use my wardrobe as room inspiration, this summer it would be colorblocked with cyan, magenta, and yellow. I've been steadily scooping of fun neon pieces to add to my closet, and the bright primaries of printing turn just as many heads in a room as they do on the street.

Hello AT,. I have a fireplace in my small studio in New York City. I believe the fireplace is non-compliant with NYC Building Code, as it lacks a proper hearth. I am considering poured concrete, stone, or tile as a fireproof material, laid flush with the floor level, so as not to break up the. Valuable floor space... This will require some demo of the exisitng. Floor, and perhaps framing out the new hearth with some new flooring.... We would simply go for a raised hearth topped in slate. Normally, you would put the hearth into the floor but your fireplace opening is high, so we would just raise the hearth entirely and do less work. We would frame out the hearth, cover it in Dura Rock or some similarly coded fireproof sheet rock and then tile it with slate. Bug Gardy again!(Thanks, Paull!) MGR. I should also say this is not the original floor... The original floor and hearth are underneath this new floor. P.S. I would like to find where exactly in the NYC Building Code the proper dimensions would be detailed... Any idea? I tried online already... VERY dense stuff that deals with all kinds of fireproofing but finding my particular information has proved difficult so far.
IKEA is taking their catalog right to the people in Kobe with a decked out monorail train furnished with their brightest selection of seating, window coverings, and an exterior that makes it quite evident that something is a bit different with this train car. A brilliant marketing idea and probably more comfortable than the usual accommodations. Plenty more photos under the jump.....
