Q: My husband and I are moving to an apartment that we are absolutely crazy about. It has a fantastic open floor plan, approximately 1300 square feet, and is built into the second story of a 1900s carriage house that is situated next to our to-be landlords' stone mansion. My question relates to the color of the living room area. The previous renter had painted the walls a dark red, which at first sight I didn't really like. Because it is a loft space, the ceilings are slanted in most of the rooms and the windows are few, limiting the natural light in certain areas of the apartment. Initially, I was thinking that by repainting the walls white or off-white, it would really open up the space even more and make it feel bigger. On the other hand, as the color started to grow on me a little bit, I wasn't sure if repainting the walls white would complement the white slanted ceilings and dark wood accents very well. My decor style involves a lot of rustic metallics, wood, reds, purples and yellows, so I don't think the color of the wall as it is right now would clash with how I plan on styling the space. Editor: Leave your suggestions for Sara in the comments - thanks! Got a question? Send us yours with pic attachments here.

Seems we have a love / hate relationship with them in our homes.... Love, because of the sense of age and texture they give to a room. Hate, because they're sometimes crumbly or have a darkening, heavy effect that overwhelms small spaces. If you're dealing with conflicting feelings about brick walls in your home, one thing you might consider is whitewashing. It's translucent, so it will still let the inherent qualities of the brick show through but lighten things up considerably. There is a simple how-to at Frugal Farmhouse for anyone who wants to give it a go.

Most mornings we go through the same routine: we step on our digital scale, grab something heavy and step on again, then weigh ourselves a third time. The reason? The scale gives a different reading before and after we hold the heavy thing. We've learned not to trust it, and have begun to feel nostalgic for a good old fashioned analog scale. Circular dial gives a more visceral sense of relative weight gain or loss. Four little colored tabs fit around the face to mark weight goals and milestones. Since the relative accuracy of an analog scale's spring mechanism trumps the body fat readouts and tenth of a pound increments of our digital scale, we'll be picking one of these up soon.

There are quite a few things of beauty in this world, but none of them are in the shape of this fireplace, which simply looks amazing. Naturally, this design will split opinions, but all in all, we like it a lot. Actually, the Gyrofocus fireplace isn't just the world's most beautiful fireplace, it's been voted the world's most beautiful object by the World's Most Beautiful Object 2008-2009 in the Pulchra design competition. This design competition is the first beauty contest exclusively reserved for objects, whatever that means. Needless to say that this is one incredibly beautiful fireplace. Gyrofocus is made by the French fireplace maker Focus. It can pivot 360° and has been exhibited in several contemporary museums, including the prestigious Guggenheim. For it to work well, you'd need a massive space though, with really high ceilings.

The only area I am having trouble with, is a place to sit and eat. I was hoping to stumble across a small, rustic, wood bar table at some point, but I can't seem to find ANYTHING that would work. I know that I would like to place it on the other side of the refrigerator, opposite wall from the couch. There is a good amount of space for a small table and 2 chairs. I know that I would also like for it to be bar/counter height. I like the feeling of sitting a bit higher than the couch, which would be directly across from the table. I can't seem to find anything that doesn't look too shiny, too big, too thin, plastic and wobbly, too expensive, or likely to topple over from someone leaning on it. I've even considered building my own table but I don't have the means. All I am looking for is a tall, sturdy, small table, preferably all wood and nothing fancy. Any suggestions or ideas on where I should be looking? Anyone have any suggestions for a 'Rustic wood bar table' that fits Haley's style? We're not normally looking for 'Rustic' items, but think maybe this Macon Small Spaces Table & Chair Set may fit the bill, in size, style and affordability.

We stayed with relatives on the Western coast who line-dried their clothes and wore the same pants, skirts, and sweaters for several days in a row before adding them to the laundry heap. Recommendations for lightening up your laundry load below the jump.... Underwear and socks should always be washed after one use. As long as your body stays clean, your clothes generally won't smell after one wear. Clothes get dirty more quickly in summer and more slowly in winter. Washing clothes less frequently extends their longevity and saves money. Mist clothes with ironing water or fabric conditioner to keep them smelling fresh. Use sachets in your drawers or closets to keep clothes smelling good longer.

Hello AT,. I just signed the lease on this great studio apartment. I'm pretty much starting fresh with new furniture but I'm not sure what color scheme would work best with the exposed brick. My other question is, how should I divide the room to hide my full size bed? Right now I'm thinking of putting it in the corner to the right of the closet.

MTH Woodworking, located in Vancouver, British Columbia, specializes in creating furniture from nature. The Bloom collection by MTH Wood Works is based on a hybrid synthetic/organic design that combines tree sections with a resin top to create a unique look. The modern look of these tables takes the unfinished wood look to a new dimension. The base of the tree is used as is and the minimalist resin top lets the tree show through.

We blinked, and checked the price again when we saw that this Modern platform bed from England's Habitat is just $50. The owner says 'Must sell fast' so someone should borrow a truck and get over there pretty darn quickly. Apartment Therapy Furniture Classifieds are open for your business in the NAV BAR.
