this is kind of an interesting site:

it links you to tools to test colors together.  so you can see how certain colors work together.  i think the benjamin moore color viewer is pretty easy to use, and has so many colors to pick from!

i'd stick with greys, blues, brown, and lime green or yellow!  most of your furniture is brown, and i like brown with blues, and the lime green or yellow would make it look fresh.  i think you should paint the walls either a crisp white, or a subdued grey color.  i don't think the color of the walls goes well with the carpet.  i usually just look at my art, then choose colors to go with my art.  i have a lot of b/w photos, then my paintings have a lot of browns, orange, yellow, red and blue.  so i like using red and orange.

here are some color ideas:
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tiny Homes (like Tumbleweed) on: February 08, 2009 06:02:20 PM
i am going through something similar, though not quite so extreme.  i am moving out of a shared house that i had been in for 3 years into a 485 sq ft studio.  there is nothing like downsizing to make you think about what you own and what is important. 
i would just build in a breakfast bar, and use stackable stools to save space.  i also prefer doing laundry in-home than using the apartment's laundry.  instead of getting a wash/dryer combo, i have been considering one of these portable washing machines:  http://www.laundry-alternative.com/products/Wonderwash.html 
they are much cheaper, faster, and practical for a single person or a couple.  i would just designate two laundry days/week to do it, then line dry.  they have spin dryers on the same website, which will take out most of the water for a quicker line or machine dry.
good luck!  this is a fantastic way to save the environment, and $$ too!

i think it needs blood.  it would be a fun contrast to the cuteness.  on the knife and cleaver, and maybe a little trail of it, winding away behind them.

you can use them as cheap planters if you garden...  maybe flowers for your patio?

I grew up in Culver, went to school in Bend, now in Portland to finish.  I really miss Bend.   Cry  Downtown is so charming, and so are the farmer's market and all that.  There are quite a few cafe's that are craftster friendly.  some friends and I would have a weekly knitting group at Santiago's Cafe in Redmond.  Have fun finding all the things that make Central Oregon special!  <3

if you want one that big, you would probably need welding supplies.  if you are making a smaller one, maybe three-tiered, i think some heavy gage wire and pliers should do to bend it into shape.  that is a really beautiful one, though.

you should add some embroidery at the collar, or some fabric paint to the bottom.  you did a wonderful job fixing the fit!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: It's impossible to find a pattern for a stitch like this! RAWG RAWG! on: December 14, 2007 11:05:02 AM
-I've been trying to find a way to duplicate the stitch in crochet, but so far, nothing. Has anyone seen a similar pattern/stitch, or have any clues how to pull it off?

Thank you!  Grin

maybe if you start at the bottom, do a mock-rib stitch, then pick up sections of 3-4 stitches one at a time and do a DC stitch down the legnth, all around the hat (so it will look like an upside-down jellyfish), then weave them.  at the end, you could just bunch them together and tie them off so it would make a kind of pom-pom at the top.  and that is the best i can come up with.  good luck!
