Hi!

Here are pics from my recent Small Space, Big Style segment.

http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/dc_design_small_space/article/0,1793,HGTV_3382_4394068,00.html

Highlights included a tour of my crafty pad, a Wonder Woman style, spinning outfit change and a Rapunzel wig crafting session!  If you have HGTV on demand, you can request the episode (#208 entitled Undersized Utopias).

The photos from the feature in AnAn magazine in Japan show just how pink and green the apartment really is.  Since I don't have a translation yet, you get to make up your own captions!



Keep on sparkling!
Elizabeth

I actually saw that episode. How Funny. I was reading your post thinking that I saw an episode of that show. I clicked on your links and the I saw it. You have the greatest pad. I wished that the HGTV web page had more pictures ofthe pink vs. green color combo.

Thank you for all of the lovely compliments!  Sorry, it's taken me a while to respond but I do have exciting news.  Two weeks ago, the Japanese fashion magazine anan was here and took photos of my apartment for an upcoming article entitled, "Places I Want to Live!"  I believe the issue will come out in September and feature apartments in Paris and New York.  I'm thrilled to be included and have such fun publicity abroad...hopefully they will mention my craft books too!

As for your questions and comments,

thumbkin - The color is called Season's Promise (# 38-D) from Ace Hardware Paints however I upgraded to a Benjamin Moore eggshell mix for durability (hue stayed exactly the same).

jmesdiylounge - The photos from anan will definitely show just how pink and green my apartment really is.  Although the magazine will only be available in Japan, they will send me a copy so I will update in September!

Keep on sparklin'!

Do you know if they will air this episode again? I'm sorry I missed it! The pictures look lovely.

Do you ever get tired of the colors you chose? Do you redecorate, or tend to keep it the way it is?

I am watching it right now, must be a third re-run, and I remembered reading your post a long time ago.  So I had to search craftster for it!

I LOVE your apartment.  I wish my place looked like that, my two girls would be in heaven!  unfortunatley I think my husband would not be so happy. 

I want to dust with a feather duster and tiara too.  Tomorrow me and my girls are going out to find dusters and tiara's for each of us!

Hi!  Back with updated pics...this time from the Japanese fashion magazine anan (see initial post).  Thanks again for all of your uplifting compliments.  Here are answers to your questions and comments:

A Modern Mantra:  I'm not sure if they will air the episode again but you can always request it if you have HGTV on Demand.  As for the colors, no I really don't get tired of the bright palette however I do get frustrated with all of the ideas I'm not able to pursue due to lack of space and time!  This is something I think most craftsters can relate to though!

Kikigirl:  Thanks for checking out my website.  So happy you enjoyed it!

Michelle Giordano:  I bet you saw it on HGTV Canada.  They have a different schedule than in the US.  I can only imagine how cute you and your girls must look with sparkly tiaras and feather dusters!

XOXO!
Elizabeth

Yes, HGTV Canada.  Gotta Love it.  Sometimes I wake up early just so I can watch it before the cartoons have to be watched.

I totally saw this episode and thought, "Man I would love to have a very bright and perky apartment like that."  Very cute, I love your style.

Oh I've only just come across this post. I am loving your apartment. I know it will be a big hit with my niece too so I'm sending her the link. She is desperate to get her own apartment so that she can decorate it in a similar style, she just can't get the same effect in a dorm room!

I just realized I bought your Princess Crafts book for my youngest niece. She loved it, especially the Rapunzel hair. I loved your humorous writing style too.

tivaclare and BeeSting, thanks-a-bunch!  Yes, please don't remind me of what rent is in my neighborhood.  Yikes!!!

TeriH, I'm so happy your niece liked my book and that you like the writing style!  Yay!  My favorite craft happens to be the Rapunzel Wigs too.

I just entered my apartment in the Apartment Therapy "I've Got Color" Contest:

http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/ny/fall-colors-2006-east/17-elizabeth-ingrids-sparkly-splendor-013386

I knew there would be some backlash since I already got exposure on HGTV and in AnAn magazine but it's been really fun reading what people love AND hate about my place.

If you have a chance, check it out and vote for your favorite entries!

So, I started trying to translate your article for you (call it studying for my Japanese exam?  Haha), but the resolution isn't high enough for me to read some of the kanji.  If you'd like a translation, I can attempt to do it for you... it was kind of fun until I ran into too many fuzzy kanji.  The title was easy, though: "Pink and Green Dorm House: Bold color-coding is a surprising effect"

Anyway, very cool room, but I'm more interested in translating the text, because I'm a Japanese major like that.  Tongue

Thanks for the offer to translate Supersandra!  I may take you up on that at some point!  And sorry, it's taken me so long to reply.  October, November and December were all equally crazy, to say the least!  A bit more pink and green news, here is a holiday decorating article from the San Francisco Chronicle, I was included in this month:

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2006/12/06/HOG5RMON4T1.DTL

Maybe some of the ideas will come in handy next year!  My last name is used in the article, so when you read, "Elizabeth Hauser," that's me.

XOXO,
Elizabeth Ingrid
