Anonymous would love people's feedback on the following questions:

What is your take on the classic pieces... I know mid-century has been hot the past few years; however, I've tried to mix classic mid-century with modern to even things out. The reason I've gone modern is that I did not want to have to update my furniture every 3-5 years. When do you think the mid-century fad will be over? Also, do you think my place is too minimalist?

Years lived in: 4 Months (in 07/06)

Inspiration: I wanted to be able to come home to a fun yet simple environment that shows off my personality.

My style: Modern Minimalist with Mid-Century accents with a splash of color.

Favorite room: They're all my favorite. However, if I were to pick I would have to say the bedroom... because it serves two purposes... one to sleep and the other as my home office.

Most talked-about element: My hanging artwork and the stainless steel counter-high table in the kitchen.

Most embarrassing element: None really. Well, maybe the fireplace... it would be great to remove it but that's another project years down the road.

Proudest DIY: I installed maple wood floors in my bedroom.

Dream source: dwell and Modernism Magazine.

Reality source: Mscape, DWR, Zinc Details, Kartell.

Best advice: Don't be afraid to add color to your place.

Found treasure: I bought this really nice Sapien look-alike vertical bookshelf on Craigslist for $60... I love it.

Had forever: Nothing really. When I moved to the new place I bought all new furniture and artwork.

Just got: I bought these really cool bathroom accessories -- A Q-Tip holder in green and a towel holder in orange. I purchased them from Waterworks in downtown SF... the colors match the Italian tiles on the bathroom floor.
