Good Idea: Wooden Bathmat
image:32a37ed3ee7d8b218e7174f4af424d2212ad2293 w:540 s:"fit" class_name:"mt-image-center" show_pin_button:"true" show_image_credits:"true" We’ve been living with a wooden bathmat by the shower for the past two years and loving it. Gone are the days of machine-washing dingy, matted rugs, only to find them dirty again just days later. The wooden bathmat can aerate and dry itself, and though it has a tendency to collect build-up underneath, it is relatively easy to clean up.

Blast From The Past: Rib Cage Shower
I was looking for treasures yesterday at The Antique & Artisan Center in Stamford, Connecticut when I came across the most unusual shower I’ve ever seen.Turns out the rib cage (or needle) shower was a luxurious bath fixture made of chrome in the early 20th century that featured such technological advances as lower shower sprays and a temperature gauge.

Yellow As A Neutral
Sometimes people think of decorating as a choice between two extremes – blah neutral and wild color. The truth is that most colors can work as neutrals by using more sedate tones. Yellow is one of the colors that does this extremely well.When there are more attention-seeking colors in a space, yellow can easily bring some life to the neutral areas without immediately drawing the eye in. Yellow also compliments many other colors quite nicely.

Apartment Therapy: Dream Interpretation
I have frequent dreams about the places where I’ve visited and lived, with vast secret rooms to be found behind the familiar walls. I could probably use a long stay on a psychoanalyst’s couch, but instead I’ve looked to the dictionary at Dream Moods for the answers to my subconscious home-related questions. What’s going on in your head?Attic To see an attic in your dream, represents hidden memories or repressed thoughts that are being revealed.
