I loved doing this feature. It was nice for me to do something a little different (from design) and I really enjoyed trying to find neat ways to spruce up the home. It definitely gave me a mad case of home envy as well. I can't wait to have my own place so I can put all of these things into practise (and of course go on a little shopping spree).
