We have a rental and love it- it's a converted attic space. I wouldn't want to move. But there are a couple of things that annoy me:
-it's a pretty open floor plan and the bathroom opens right into the only logical place to have our "living room"... so when there's company and everyone's sitting on the couch, you can hear *everything * going on in the bathroom a few feet away. Embarrassing!!
-terribly insulated so our heating bills are exorbitantly expensive
-sloping walls that we always hit our heads on
-the windows are tiny so when the AC window units are installed for summer, it's hard to see outside

Wow, if the painting is a study, that's amazing! Copying the masters... a great way to learn. It looks wonderful in the room, original or not.

Yikes- the copy on this needs quite a bit of editing. It's very distracting!

Nevertheless, the Jenny Saville painting is stunning, and I echo the first commenter in wanting to know the story behind it. The paint color in that room is also fantastic.

Great place! So much great art -it's so tastefully decorated. And it looks like a real, lived-in home, too. Love it!

This is a great classic cocktail. The Violet Hour in Chicago does a variation with raspberry syrup and grapefruit bitters I think! Yum.

If you're looking for a sofa or couch from IKEA that's the best value, I highly recommend the Kivik- it's so classy looking, comfortable, and durable. We love ours and got it for under $600.

My mom always does this really clever centerpiece: she takes a super tall cylindrical vase, and fills it with vintage/1950s glass bulb ornaments. It's colorful and really packs a punch! And super easy.

Apparently I'm "one of those people who's obsessed with sloths" because that embroidered sloth is beyond adorable.
