We're moving into a new place in a few weeks, and we've got a nice glass block "window" in the bedroom.

Flowers in the Attic, without, you know, THAT.

We're finishing an attic to use as a living space. Said attic is ~400 sq ft and has sash windows and skylights, and Mr. desjardins is going to put white beadboard paneling around the walls. The floor is old, dark wood in bad shape, but we do not have time/money to sand/refinish. What colors should we paint the paneling and floor? The walls angle in dramatically so I don't want to feel claustrophobic. [more inside]

help me choose decorative sticks

Decorative Sticks: What's the right vase height to stick height ratio? I'm really bad at decorating/visuals. A friend had decorative sticks, like this and this, and I'm copying her, so my question is if, for example, I have 3' sticks, how high should the vase be? Bonus points if you know where I can buy a modern/contemporary vase and sticks together for under $100.

Best way to store framed pictures?

What's an easy, convenient way to store framed pictures temporarily? (Especially when they're different sizes.) We have lots of framed photos, maps, etc. that we like to switch out every 6-12 months. We want to protect the glass and frames, of course, but ideally we'd also be able to access the pictures and switch them out relatively easily, without having to unwrap some hellish Christmas present of tape and cardboard and padding every time.

Fun desk chair?

I need a 'decorative' desk chair. It doesn't have to be too comfortable, it only gets used for occasional filing. But it is in a bedroom, so I'd like for it to be fun and modern. Ikea is the only place I could think of to look, and I'd like some more options. Thanks!

Cheaper duvet cover

I have been wanting to redo the bedroom in blue and chocolate brown, and I really really love this duvet cover, the king-size sky version, although I wouldn't mind if the blue was a few shades darker. Is there something similar but cheaper out there? And maybe made of a sturdier fabric...

Help Me Feel Better About Not Wanting To "Go All Out" With The Christmas Decorating.

I feel guilty for not wanting to really "go all out" with Christmas decorating this year. I'll do the tree, of course, but every year I feel like doing less and less in terms of the "whole shebang"... My kids are basically "grown up" (ages 19 and 15) but I feel like I'll be letting them down if I do less than what's expected. The thought of totally getting into the decorating this year is exhausting. Can any other Mefites relate to this? And, if so, how did you deal with it?
