I was watching THIS
video that someone posted on Facebook the other day. I was really struck by the brown wall treatment in this guy's home. Best examples are at :40sec through 1min. I have been looking for it for some time. Pretty sure it's NOT Venetian plaster, as the texture is right, but Venetian plaster is glossy and slick looking. This look is textured, but matte finish, not glossy in any way. Can any of you interior decorator/designer types help me identify it? I would love to get this look in my house.
My apartment has ugly yellow walls and I can't do anything about the color. How can I make them less bland? [more inside]

I want to hang some LP covers on a wall, and remember years ago seeing a cheap little kit that was something like four pieces of clear plastic for the corners, connected by an elastic string X-shape in the back that could hang on a nail. The result was a neat frameless effect that I liked, but I can't find it again. Does anyone know what that kit was and where I can buy it? [more inside]
I need to install new carpet in my 2-bedroom house. I know next to nothing about this. Sorry, we're not looking for wood or vinyl floors at this time. I just want to hear from people who've been through this experience. Got one grade-school age kid, one dog and one cat. What type of carpet deals with this traffic, resists stains and still looks good and is moderately priced? Also any advice on trying to learn how to install this yourself vs. professional installers.
Please suggest images I could convert into crewel which are cartoon modern in style, but not depictions of characters. [more inside]

What long, decorative item (say, 12'x4') can I hang on my empty wall? If it happened to absorb sound from the opposing speakers, that'd be great. [more inside]
