replacing modern doorknobsfeatured

As a renter, there are three things that I try to replace immediately when I move into an apartment: the switch plate covers, the doorknobs, and the toilet seat.

My twenties were pretty tumultuous: I changed careers, began and ended relationships, lost some of my closest family, got some dogs, and moved around a lot because of these things. Moving is difficult, but it’s also exciting, because Read more



Last weekend I did something I have never done before. It was a challenge, and I didn’t think too much about it or I wouldn’t have gone through with it. After years of experience with bold and interesting colors, I did the craziest thing I could think of. I painted my living room white. I Read more
