Ho ho ho
are you two gonna get it together or something?
doesn't really help you, does it creaky?
No we are not going to get it together, Raanraals recently had sex with a woman.
It's always been you, marilyn.
I was so ashamed afterwards that I scrubbed my manhood several times to get all the mayonnaise and chives off it. And I washed my mouth out with soap to get rid of the bigoted dirty talk that salady slut coerced me into.
that there's also a coleslaw reference in there? So, so familiar...
to hang around looking disinterested.
what are you saying?
but i think it's less to do with flowers than you might think.

take all your cd covers out of the cases and pin them on the walls in colour-matched patterns (or blu-tack i guess if you care about damaging them). looks more interesting than posters, pretty fun to spend a day sitting matching designs together AND you get to show off how great your music taste is. also, get some nice lamps
a nice coloured or dim light to make it cosy at night times. A few things on the walls, paintings, CD covers/flyers/vinyl.. comics.. whatever your into, its really about making the space your own, reflecting who you are.
I always get told ive got a comfortable welcoming home, i think its down to the colours and loads of pillows, instruments and paintings and bits and bobs ive collected over the years. Its most definitely my home going by how it looks thats for sure. ive done something recently which i like, i have my congos sitting at the top of the stairs, and ive arranged some vinyl of different sizes going up like bubbles from the congos. Well i like it.
PS I'm worried that you're going to trip over your congos.
Where have I been the past 20 odd years
or the 'Choose Life' speech from Trainspotting. Noone's done that.
is cheap and effective.
Rug (x1); Instruments against the wall (x2); record player (+records); Lamp (x1); Small pile of books; small pile of DVDs. I can also probably acquire a Bon Iver poster by this time tomorrow. So my shopping list currently includes: Pillows; maybe another lamp; maybe a plant (I'm sceptical about this); um. Some taxidermy? Interior design is hard :(
go on, it will occupy your mind and will occupy the mind of any visitor (even whilst it is wip) so that the empty space is distracted from
-3,000 point Eldar army on display next to your 5,000 point Orc army.
-poster of Louise Nurding
-paint pots stacked everywhere
-LARPing costume hung on front of wardrobe
-Massive fuck-off keyboard set up in one corner
Photos of yourself everywhere. A wet beanbag.
Loads of those, chicks go nuts for that shit.
most of my mates starting mentioning that my flat started looking like someone was actually living there, so I know how this feels.
I'm just tidy for fucks sake.
Buy some of that.
I'm not sure what more I could do, though. My bedroom currently contains: a double bed; a computer desk; three amps; 12 guitars; a whole wall of built-in wardrobes; and a couple of pictures on the wall. Plus, I often leave some clothes lying around for effect.
for a similar effect. I'm going to stop doing this.
<throws off the shackles of peer pressure>
Just black frames of cool stuff like cool old films / bands / girls. Posters are for teenagers and look tatty. Be classy.
in the plain black frames from IKEA for some reason.
However, frames are expensive. And so I usually go for blank space as a compromise.
Do you buy stuff pre-framed, or do you buy stuff you like and go to get it framed?
