these digs ...

I just "finished" decorating after
almost a year of indecisiveness. I have
a really tiny studio and was at the point where I wanted to buy
furniture that I'd keep for a while. My existing accessories
tended toward the baroque, as did my bed, and since the room is
so small that the bed becomes impossible to overlook, I decided
to just run with it. Several trips to the thrift store (and a
lucky chaise longue find on ebay) later, I have a coordinated
"look" for my tiny living space.
My walls were hideous, bright white and the lease says no
painting. My solution was to staplegun grasscloth wallpaper to
the walls. In a nice dark pattern so I didn't have to be too
careful about matching up the lines. We'll see if this was a
smart idea when it comes time to move in another year or so, but
in theory it should be pretty easy to take down.
