Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

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?
Hey folks. Since it’s The Frisky’s 7 Days To A Prettier Place week, we thought we’d each take you into our apartments and show you, uh, where the magic happens. So, welcome to my humble abode! The first thing most people notice when they walk into my place is that the walls are very, very bright—my living room (the South Wing*) is Kelly Green and my bedroom (the North Wing) is Rocky Mountain Blue. When I first told my parents I was planning on painting my apartment such vivid colors, they wanted to stage an intervention. But even they have to admit that it looks pretty cool, since I used kept the inset molding white. Gotta use the architecture in a place, no?
I am in love with this West Elm lamp, which adds a lot of style for $149. I found my coffee table on the street—I just sanded it, tightened the screws and painted it black.
*This is a joke because my entire apartment is 450 square feet. But, hey, it feels like a palace to me because until two years ago, I lived in a 250 square foot studio.
Some books mean so much to us — and have such pretty covers — that we want to draw more attention to them beyond just lining them up on a book shelf. This clever book picture frame as both a way to store your favorite tomes and display them as wall art. And wouldn’t the easy access come in handy the next time you have a desperate need to quote, say, Atticus Finch’s advice to Scout in To Kill A Mockingbird or read a sex scene out loud from Jackie Collins’ Lucky? Okay, maybe that last one is just something we would do — during a dinner party, for example — but you get the point. What books would you frame?

Hi Frisky readers! Fun fact about me—I love to make and eat food! Now, if Kelly Bensimon were to meet me, I’m sure she’d emphasize in her psychotic way that I am a cook not a chef, and I would agree. That being said, I think I manage to whip up some tasty things in my tiny New York kitchen, so when the mood strikes (I’m aiming for every week), I’m going to introduce you to an easy recipe I’m currently loving.
