HGTV Friday Five

Will Smama Posted this FF "Greetings all!

As some of you may know I am in the midst of my first home purchase. It is a new-build and so some of the fun was picking out upgrades and major decor items to my taste rather than walking into a previously owned home that needed to be upgraded room by room (pink and teal tiles in the bathroom, anyone?). As much as decorating is not my thing, I did try to embrace the moment because just how many times do you get to have a do-over on kitchen cabinets/floors/counter tops?

And so, my questions to you this fine Friday involve your home past, present or future..."

1) If you could, what room in the place you are currently living would you redo first?
Since I live in, basically, one room which used to be called an L shaped studio and is now called a "junior one"-someone please show me that 'one bedroom' where is it? Come on now, it must be somewhere? I would say the whole room. Just get a big room stretcher and triple the size, just expand it. It's driving me crazy living in one room with two people!

2) What is the most hideous feature/color/decor item you have ever seen in a home?
Lots of what I would call primary/pastels. You know what I'm talking about. Really bright pinks and greens and yellows, right out of the cans. Wrong, wrong, wrong, so bad!

3) What feature do you most covet? Do you have it? If not, is it within reach?
Room, enough said. Or a room, a study with a bed, kitchenette, a big screen TV, an art studio, oh lets throw in a bathroom and hot tub...

4) Your kitchen - love it or hate it? Why?
Hate it. BL has taken it over. I can't reach anything. When I try to get a pot, everything falls on my head to that I have more lumps than I ever did. Sigh..

5) Here is $10,000 and you HAVE to spend it on the place you are living now. What do you do?
Not nearly enough, but hire an organizer to help put things in their proper place and maybe help us to make sense of this tiny place. Now there's an idea! Maybe I'll do it.

Wow. I think I'd have a nervous breakdown in a space that small and ill-defined.
Great play...hope you get some of that stuff soon...especially the elbow room!

I really didn't understand the smallness of living spaces in NYC until we spent the day at Semi-Almost-Daughter-in-Law's apartment in Brooklyn. It was like a dorm room for grownups. It's no wonder that she and Semi-Son maintain separate residences.

Reminds me of my seminary housing...
