I love me some Apartment Therapy. The first book was genius and very influential to me and my current apartment. Although I didn't maintain the purity of my Girlie Kitsch Moderne vision (Maxwell says pick a theme for your abode and stick to it) I am much the better for having read his book years ago. I was honored to have my first apartment on his site, and my current apartment, aka Bluebird Manor, is not only on the site but in the new book! Though they took the photos soon after I moved in and the pictures do not reflect the lavish, fabulous dame den I have now (I actually have a real bed now, for example, and a gorgeous pink octopus chandelier) how cool is it to be in a book with cool people? The answer: Very.
