Where Are We Living?: Ami’s Apartment!

Where Are We Living?: Ami
Since it’s The Frisky’s 7 Days To A Prettier Place week, we are showing off our humble abodes. My apartment would be considered large and in charge by New York standards, but don’t get too jealous. I live in a less desirable outer borough, I have a roommate, and the best thing about my apartment is also its Achilles heel — it hasn’t been remodeled since 1970. Literally. Sometimes I want to pull up the red shag carpeting or lime green, floral linoleum myself, but hey, I rent. My 80-year-old Greek landlord who lives downstairs would be displeased. Instead of fighting the apartment’s kitschy vibe, my roommate and I have tried to embrace it full-on. Check out the rest of my groovy grandma pad after the jump.

Shopping Guide: 10 Desks For Getting Stuff Done

Shopping Guide: 10 Desks For Getting Stuff Done
A desk is a great way to make you feel like a real-life adult-type person (I don’t have a desk). Desks give you a place to stretch out and get work done away from the distraction of the TV, a dedicated place to focus your energies when you need to do work, and perhaps most importantly, a place to hide all the floating papers, junk mail and ephemera that can sometimes take over your life. After the jump, we’ve found a selection of desks to pretty up your place.

Where Are We Living?: Winona’s Apartment

Where Are We Living?: Winona
So, unlike most of the New York-based Frisky crew, I live just outside of Portland, Oregon. I love my place, which is a one-bedroom in a condo complex (the owner rents it out) that I share with my boyfriend, Nick. Maybe it’s due to growing up with a scientist father who had a large shelf in the living room dedicated to manta ray exoskeletons, but my favorite spaces are the ones that tell stories about the people who live there and spark conversations with the people who visit. I’ve tried to fill my apartment with weird and interesting things that make me happy and comfortable. Click through for a little tour!

Home Style Stealer: An Eclectic And Slightly Boho Living Room!

So far during 7 Days To A Prettier Place week, we’ve already show you how to copycat a girly and modern home office and a serene and tranquil bedroom. Moving on to the living room — arguably the center of any home, regardless of size — I wanted to steal the style of something a littttttle more eclectic. I gave myself a serious challenge with this room, so while it’s not exact, I think I got the vibe right on. It’s all about lots of colorful throw pillows, a faux Persion rug, some modern-ish pieces of furniture, and that dang deer head. Keep reading »

Owl On The Prowl

My mom collected owl art before she had kids, so our basement was chock full of owl paintings, lithographs and tapestries (okay, my mom came of age in the ’70s.) These owls are a tasteful update on the owl obsession, perfect as a shelf objet d’art or desk paperweight. In a word, they’re a hoot.

Where Are We Living?: Amelia’s Apartment!

Where Are We Living?: Amelia
Since it’s The Frisky’s 7 Days To A Prettier Place week, we’re showing off our humble abodes. Mine is humble in many ways, but absolutely wonderful in others. For starters, it is on the petite side; like Kate’s, my place clocks in at around 450 square feet, although it’s laid out like a studio rather than a one bedroom. I have to say, it’s all the space I actually need. Sure, I would like to have an indoor hammock and a kitchen with decent counter space and a clawfoot bathtub, but considering it’s just me and little Lucca, our south-facing apartment with views of all three bridges is pretty damn sweet. So, allow me to welcome you into my apartment. Get comfortable, stay awhile, would you like a Diet Coke?
