We always feel comforted by the fact that this AT:SF reader and friend changes her home more often than we do...Can you guess whose newly redone living room it is? Take a peek below the jump to see if you're right. We think Victoria's loveseat looks like a cozy place to curl up on a cold winter day.
If only we had the room for a big sofa, we would have jumped on something like this: a fire-engine red sectional sofa. Apartment Therapy Furniture Classifieds are open for your business in the NAV BAR. Post a particularly good thing, and we'll post you here on the front page.... OTHER GOOD STUFF..
Maybe it's because he's french and had a fixation with the idea of the American old west, but when I was young my dad used to drag me around to the Rose Bowl to buy awesomely bad thrift store paintings of cowboys, cactus and horses, sometimes even40's era Indian Chiefs. As a little girl I did not have the same appreciation that I have today. The bathroom can be a great place to go big with color or with overscale artwork or fun collections that might not make the same impact in another part of the house. I like this collection of deer prints from gentillefille's flickr set that she picked up at a thrift store and put on display in the bathroom.
Need a comfy child-, pet- and clumsyproof chair? This Living room chair just might fit the bill. It's attractively priced and a nice neutral color that will fit most color schemes. MM.

When we talked about making your bathroom your sanctuary we touched on having some lovely nice smelling soaps for the bath. Well some readers chimed in and reminded us that there are all kinds of no nonsense recipes for scrubs and lotions that you can make yourself using things that you might already have around the house-convenient and affordable! A roundup of our favorites is under the cut. Foot Scrub:Mix equal parts granulated sugar and olive oil and rub. To Exfoliate Elbows and Knees:Cut an orange in half and rub. Bath Soaks:Add a cup of strongly brewed peppermint tea to the water for an herbal soak. OrAdd a few tablespoons of liquid milk or dry milk for a milk bathFrom Green LIvingor Try the recipe we use. For Dry Skin:We have a friend that swears by rubbing pure coconut milk into her skin to battle dry skin. We confess, her skin is very soft and she always smells sweet. For Puffy Eyes:Use chamomile, green or black tea bagssteep them in just boiling water and then refridgerate.
For today's color combo, we thought we'd start with black and white, then spin the wheel for bold accent colors. We love the way yellow offsets the high-contrast scheme in this room, so we went on a search for other cool rooms that do the same using orange, purple, green, blue, red, and pink.... Black, White, and just a tiny bit of Red: Vitra.
We would guess most people are familiar enough with their bathroom layout to be able to locate the light switch in their sleep. For those who aren't or are frequent visitors to the bathroom in the middle of the night, Robern has a new bathroom cabinet with an integrated night light. The in handle LED and a built in light sensor illuminates the under side of the cabinet automatically when the light conditions are dark enough to warrant it. Now your midnight bathroom trips can happen discreetly without having to wake your partner by turning on all the bathroom lights.
