I want to hump the doorframe, I love it that much.

Blogger Brookelina said...

That was the greatest home tour ever! I want to do it again!!!

Also, Leonard Nimoy and I have much in common. We are both pink, pot-bellied, and cross-eyed.

I am never going to get a date.

*Sigh*

I very much want to be your roommate.

Your place looks SO cute, and the cats? Even more so.

Also, I have that same bedspread! Except mine is primarily beige and the large polka dots are dark brown.

Blogger Colleen said...

Why not call your pad the Pink Camel?

Blogger Tel said...

My god, what a fantastic apartment! Are you SO happy? It looks just fabulous, and it's ALL YOURS! ;)

PS - I LOVE your pillows!

Blogger David said...

I was looking at your elbow... I think there's a knee in that mirror too... And they both look naked. Were you taking pictures of your apartment in the nude? Is that why all the curtains were pulled?

It's cool if you were, I'm not judging. Just thinking about it.

I'm not certain what the name should be, but it should contain the word Peephole. One, because I love how looking out of yours you can see the freeway THROUGH ANOTHER APARTMENT, and two, because Peephole sounds dirty.

Blogger Quirkalot said...

Your place is loveleh! I like the color choices (probably cuz I chose the same ones). I even have the same bedding, but mine is blue with brown circles!

Thousands of miles can't separate what we have...

Blogger Quirkalot said...

P.S.
I really can't think of good names for things. Maybe you should at least call your bathroom "Kitty City".

Hey, what should I call my place?

Blogger Ariel said...

Polka Dot Manor

Blogger Libby said...

I am jealous of your lilypad.

Mine is not that clean, and the foul-butted kitties who inhabit my bathroom like to spread the cat litter EVERYWHERE.

It's clean. And there are no toys. Everywhere.

Can I come visit please?

Blogger Ellen Bloom said...

Your place looks great! One more thing....one or a few of the walls in the living room NEEDS to be painted blue to match the couches. This would make the whole place hang together and be very designer-y.

Name for your pad: The Twist Palace!

Blogger Spinning Girl said...

I so, SO enjoyed that tour.
Now I must ponder a name for your pad. I will return shortly to supply my input.
You are adorable!!!!
Also, I copied you.
be flattered.

Anonymous ValancyJane said...

I love Libby's suggestion of Lilypad.

Blogger Tits McGee said...

When I stop thinking about that bottle of lotion next to your bed, I'll get back to you with my suggestion.

Blogger Tel said...

Oh, by the way, my name pick is...


Powerful Sassy-Like

Anonymous Frank said...

Wow, it makes me miss my one bedroom I Had in Santa Monica...

Blogger Melissa said...

I also have a sink and toilet cat who feels it is their duty to protect me from make-up related injuries.

Also, I'm completely in love with your bedspread.

Blogger Sysm said...

I'm torn between two SoCal themes:

Casa de Feisty

or


Xanadu

Blogger Spinning Girl said...

How about ...The Maxi Pad?

"Cause it rocks, to the Max, like.

Blogger Thérèse said...

Your place, it is so great, and inviting; so inviting and great!

It makes me want to sit on the edge of the tub within reach of cat while you do your make-up in the morning. Also, I love that you have roller skates blocking a door. Roller skates. HA.

And also? You are so crafty. In all of the ways one can be crafty. Good, all good! (Ever thought of selling your stuff? Like, on e-bay or anything? I only mention it because Doug, who is often with me when I carry the knitty bag around, has noticed, as have I, that I always get compliments/rave about it when I carry it. This has been a very long parenthesis.)

Blogger Tits McGee said...

I can't beat Xanadu.

Blogger danny said...

you don't want me to play, you really don't.

nice place cap'n.

Blogger DaMasta said...

What a cool place! I just moved as well, and I'll be showing pics of my casa tomorrow - what'er the odds?! ;) I hope to make my home as homey as yours. Kudos on all the hand made stuff, too! Woo!

Blogger me said...

first of all... faboo place with faboo curtains and pillows.

second... i have that exact same plastic storage thingy for my bathroom but it doesn't fit anymore.

third... my nana's cat used to sit in the sink while she was in the bathroom and stuff. he liked water.

fourth... something about cats and the bathroom but if i'm in there, napoleon makes sure he is n there with me. he likes to be in the tub.

your new place rocks

Blogger jiggs said...

Blogger Tim said...

Shimmy & Shake Manor
Fishnet Palace
The Pastie Parlour
Sew Chateau

You've done a beautiful job with the place.

Anonymous Gwen said...

I am lacking in name suggestions, but I am totally in love with your place. And I now have "We Built This City (On Rock & Roll)" stuck in my head and I kind of want to make an 80s music video about your apartment.

I really do owe you a good name, though, because "Sink Full of Leonard Nimoy" is totally my new fake band name.

Blogger Libby said...

I forgot to tell you.

My kitties look just like your kitties. It is rather frightening because my white Siamese-like crazy kitty sits in the sink while the orange-y one sits on the toilet.

But this is all the time. Not just for makeup time.

Makes it hard to use the sink.

Blogger Auntie Sassy said...

I have apartment envy.

And kitty envy.

And "being able to come up with creative names" envy.

(but the Lilypad is awfully cute...)

Blogger Calzone said...

"Ham Wallet"

Blogger Christina said...

Wow, you have such a cool apartment! Can you come out to the east coast and decorate my house?
Also, I have 8 place settings that match your vintage apple ads. They are yours for the taking if you want plates that match your wall art.

Blogger sappmama said...

How 'bout Chez Make-a-La-La?

Don't ask.

I lurve those blue couches and you've set them off beautifully with the supa-fly pillows.

eh, pee

I didn't say the. Word verification did.

Blogger amera hearts said...

Blogger Malnurtured Snay said...

You call it a sink, but kitty calls it "her bath." ;)

Blogger Jorgi said...

Help!!!! I can't find my way out.

Blogger GrandPooOfAwesome said...

Yay! I loved that. :) I'm so impressed that you make stuff and stuff. Your cats are cool.

Blogger Glitzy said...

Craft Maven Bungalow?

Gorgeous job. I love your mad curtain skillz.

I think orange kitties have a secret pact to open all cabinets. I also had to child proof my cabinets so that my orange boy kitty would stay out of them.

Blogger kitty said...

your home tour was very cool. I'm envious that I didn't think of it first. Sad. I'm just not that creative.

Blogger MrWriteNow said...

Wow...I feel like I just spent the evening at your place....and I didn't even get to kiss you good night.

Dammit.

Blogger d'mang said...

i know i'm late on this one, and i didn't read all the other comments so i'm sorry if there's another entry with this theme

Space Kitty Cantina or maybe Cosmic Kitty Cantina
