Monday on Marketplace: A Bookcase for Every Budget — Apartment Therapy Marketplace

My apartment defies basic New York City cliches by having a “regular”-sized bedroom and a huge kitchen. But as someone who doesn’t cook very often, I’ve repurposed a whole section of open shelving into a makeshift bookshelf over my breakfast table. That’s because despite not making it into your general idea of apartment must-haves (like a sofa and bed), I think that you should try to work a bookshelf (or bookcase) into your home anyway you can.

At First Blush: Ideas for Decorating With Pale Pink

I am grateful every single day for the moment blush was declared the new neutral. I realize that my Apartment Therapy bio says I love mint—and that’s entirely true. But there’s something about a blushy, whispering rose color—in any of its forms, from pale pink to copper to apricot and peach—that just feels so fresh and current. Add a little—or a lot of—pink(ish) to your home by painting the walls, upholstering your sofa, or even tiling your floors. Want to see the world through rose-colored glasses? Take a peek at these beautiful blushing interiors.

Before & After: One Afternoon and $10 for a Vintage-Style Mirror Makeover

Sarah had an idea of the perfect mid-century-style mirror in her mind. So when she spotted something like that mirror, albeit a rusty, over the top version, she snatched it up. Using the classic DIY elixir of elbow grease and spray paint she turned the whole thing around in one well-spent afternoon.

The Designer Life in 366 Square Feet — House Tour

Name: Mary Lee, her partner Jacob and her sweet chihuahua Kyley
Location: Seattle, Washington
Size: 366 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, owned

The amount of blood, sweat and tears in any home remodel is substantial. But can you imagine the amount while making over a 366 square foot studio when you’re still living in it? A space that you share with your partner and a dog? It’s extraordinary, chaotic, and in Mary Lee’s case, ultimately worth it.

Not in Love With Your Backsplash? We Tested Adhesive, Removable Smart Tiles — Test Lab

“Renew your room in less than three hours.” That’s the tagline on the Smart Tiles website, where you can find their range of self-adhesive and removable tiles. I’m always wary of any promise of simplicity, as there are often a bunch of tools involved in a project—tools that I would never own—or the project itself isn’t beginner-friendly.

But the Smart Tiles website promises their product can be installed without any mess or special tools, are easy to clean, and resistant to the heat of stovetops and humidity of bathrooms. A quick search online also generated some positive reviews. As a renter, I found those all reaffirming, so I thought I’d give them a try.
