by Jeffrey 9.15.08: My living room is filled with comfortable furniture and beautiful art painted by friends. A custom Nate Berkus chair tops it off.
by Rob & Nini 9.12.08: Our livingroom is a mix of pieces we've found over the years. Scoring the square Emma Gardner rug pulled it all together.
by Tiffany 9.12.08: This is my bedroom in our basement apartment. We are doing the best that we possibly can with the lack of natural light and windows. It still manages to feel calm and serene and proves to be a wonderful space for us.
by Patty Young 9.9.08: Our living room and favorite spot in the house. I love the mix of wood tones and contrasting textures. The palette is neutral with a splash of orange/reds for a dramatic appeal...
by Hiroshi Jashiki 9.8.08: Nice to have some splashes of red here and there against neutral colored walls and cat (also neutral)...
by Elizabeth 9.8.08: The one and only bedroom in my first apartment, featuring my favorite $5 print from a TN antique store!
by Dina 8.28.08: After sleeping in a loft bed (very close to the ceiling) since the 80's, I woke one morning and was ready for a change. The loft was suddenly was really claustrophobic, but I had to figure out what to do with all my stuff below the bed.
by Catherine 8.27.08: Took the plunge and did the black wall thing - and painted the chairs while I was at it.
by Cerrissa 8.27.08: This wall fountain was built by my parents and makes the most relaxing sound of gurgling water. i could sit and listen to it forever...
by Michelle 8.26.08: We created this outdoor space that's perfect for a game of scrabble and a glass of iced tea.
by Jason 8.26.08: I finally replaced my terrible IKEA coffee table. Slowly but surely, all the beech is vacating. $6.29 at small-town-Ontario Goodwill
by Titan 8.25.08: Great photos that provide excellent inspiration and home design ideas.
by Deborah 8.25.08: My bedroom. A cosy place even though it also has a working space.
by Bruce 8.20.08: Due to yesterday's roomarks, I found my way into LivingEtc's bedrooms. The whole thing's a treasure trove. This room, in particular, I love for the red that goes all the way around the walls and ceiling.
by Tracy 8.19.08: This is where I feel I am heading - not in reality yet, but in my head. I love the dark walls, the strong, cozy contrast and the ornate bed. I'm so Post Martha!
by Mallika 8.19.08: A little bit of my living room and the dining area. The whole design revolves around the red couch.
by Tara C. 8.13.08: Layers of mismatched pillows and unorganized vintage books I think are less intimidating as a guest than a stark white room with white linens. This is a guest room done by Wary Meyers in Portland, Maine.
by Marta 8.13.08: This is my dining room.I wanted it to feel light and fresh since I live in Miami Beach.
by Grace 7.28.08: favorite corner of my room.It's totally student budget, so i'm always looking for ways to make it home: museum poster, painted stool rescued from the trash, white lanterns from the drug store...
by Andrea 7.25.08: I loved this corner of our apartment. It feels urban, quirky and earthy at the same time. Puts me in a reflective mood (not because of the leaning mirror! no pun intended, i swear!)
by Erika 7.22.08: This was so unusual I actually did bookmark it. Her whole house is amazing to me, but this roomshot wins. [also on AT here]
by Ana 7.22.08: I just saw this last week, but it's such a great idea and a great shot. Total DIY for me now, even with my small staircase.
by John 7.18.08: I originally saw this library in a New York Times Magazine article years ago. It's a two level cylindrical space housed in the cupola of a Victorian apartment building on Central Park West. (via Brown Harris)
by Michael 7.18.08: It's not so much the room, but the idea of adding an airplane fuselage to your living room wall that I love here. It's really well done.
by Chu 7.16.08: I recently finished revamping my bedroom. Getting inspiration from your site helped a lot in the process. Hopefully my work will inspire someone else to improve their living space. My facebook album documents the entire process.
