Q: We have a smallish bathroom, with the only window in the shower. We recently bought this red sparrow shower curtain. The toilet, vanity and large wooden-framed medicine cbinet are all white, as is the bathtub.
Q: Good morning, Apartment Therapy lovelies! Our family loves Christmas, but each year that passes we buy less and less. We like it that way! We want to start some Christmas traditions that involve giving back to those in need.
Q: I kind of like this set for our small dining area. It reminds me of grandma's house. I think with a few accessories it could really work. My husband thinks it's hideous BECAUSE it reminds him of grandma's house. So my question is — is it retro vintage, or just plain ugly?
Q: Hello! This will be our first winter in our new apartment and although I LOVE that our big windows in the front let in lots of light, I can already tell we are going to have an issue with our apartment being cold this winter. I am a renter and the windows do not appear to be old or in bad shape, so asking for them to be replaced is really not an option. Do you have any good ideas, Apartment Therapy readers? I would think there has to be newer technology in window insulation than the plastic my parents used back in the day...right?
Q: I just moved into my first new home and came to the realization I don't really know very much about how certain things work in my house or how to repair them. I was wondering if there was a book (preferably available in Kindle format) that covers the basics of maintenance and repair of home appliances, wiring (including how to hide them), plumbing, and home electronics/computers...something that covers it all.
Q: I just purchased a house and I love everything about it but the huge fireplace that takes up the entire wall in the living room. My husband and I prefer a more modern style, and would welcome any suggestions on how to make the fireplace look more like our style. We're starting from scratch, so there is nothing to match it to yet.
Q: I live in a small apartment and I need to replace my couch with something that's more comfortable to sleep on. I was thinking about buying a futon, but they all seem to be so modern, which is not my style. My home is filled with antiques and traditional furniture. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
Q: Dear readers, I'm really hoping you can give me some help here. I have recently started renting this downtown studio apartment, and I love everything about it except the interior design! I can't swap out any of the furniture that's in here already, but it definitely needs and has room for a new sofa/sitting area:
Q: We recently bought a home and have used up our budget on other pressing home needs. This bathroom needs work, but the tile has to stay (for now!). We've replaced the sink/vanity, but the mirror is an issue due to the previous (duct taped!) model that was there. We also want to get rid of the sconce fixtures but need recommendations on a mirror that can mask the problems. Please help!!
Q: Hi interior design experts! I came across this beautiful shelving unit on the ol' Pinterest and have been trying to figure out where it comes from. Does anyone have an idea where I can pick up one of these, or something similar?
