Susan asks…

REAL small apartment decorating question…?

I live in an apartment complex… The kind that has a gym and pool, and so on. Whenever I look up pictures or articles for small apartment decorating, I can only seem to find pictures of people with lofts and condos. I can’t paint, I can’t build partitions, I can’t build stuff into the wall, etc. Where are the articles and pictures of decor for real apartments like mine?

What’s the name of dining table & its designer in Jennifer Aniston’s loft in “He’s Just Not That Into You?”?

The piece looks mid century modern, but I cannot seem to find it anywhere. Any information would be helpful…thanks!

Here’s a (very bad) picture of table from the website apartment therapy. It’s the picture with Jennifer Aniston standing in front of the table (4th one down, I think):

Donna asks…

What type of home is this?

I’ve Googled ‘loft home’, ‘loft apartment‘ and ‘studio apartment‘, and no pictures or information came up to help me. The type of home/apartment I’m looking for is pretty much like a very gigantic room with wooden floors and brick walls. I guess a loft home would count, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be a loft.

There’s an example of the home/apartment in Avril Lavigne’s new video ‘What The Hell’, at the very beginning of the video when she’s laying in bed with the guy. I think the homes/apartments are very beautiful, but edgy at the same time, and that’s the kind of home I want to move into.

Does anyone have any idea what exactly they’re called, and how I can look for on in my area or anywhere? Thank yew.

David asks…

Is it selfish to only sublet my own room in an apartment?

We have two single bedrooms and a loft. (three singles total)
All three of us are moving back home for the summer, so a month ago, I been hinting my roomies that we need to start posting the lease. NO ONE DID IT. So I went in their rooms, took pictures, and posted the entire apartment, thinking that it will help with leasing my room, and I posted my room on the side also. I have received many responses for my room only, but thought it was a bit selfish if I got rid of my own room and not take care of theirs. BUT the entire time of this process, I was responsible for calling, responding emails, taking interested renters on tours while they both did NOT do anything. Now I finally found two guys to take my room, and another three to share the other single and the loft, and they said ITS UNFAIR FOR ME TO NOT SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE (since the guys renting my room are paying full price but the three guys renting theirs only wants to pay 900 total for the other room and loft. The difference per month is 580 to split between two roommates) PERSONALLY I DONT THINK THIS IS FAIR JUST BECAUSE I DID ALL THE WORK AND WAITED ALSO.

Thoughts please?

Administrator answers:

No it’s not selfish. You done all the work!!!! If they wanted a better deal they should have done it themselves!

Jenny asks…

Thought it was a bedbug but it doesn’t look like the pictures?

Several years ago I lived in an apartment in Chicago. I used to find these insects in my apartment. Often I would wake up with rows or small itchy red bites on my legs and arms so I assumed they were bed bugs. I subsequently moved and never saw another for several years. Last month I moved to NY. I was surprised this morning to find one of the same bugs in my apartment. I am wondering what it is. It resembles a very small spider, is reddish brown, hard shelled, has roundish shape with a pronounced lower section, a very small head and walks slowly and in a sort of mechanical way. It doesn’t look like any of the pictures I see of bed bugs. It looks more like a tick and isn’t black or jump like a flea. I don’t have pets and live on the 6th floor of a building. I found this one in my tub. I am no idea how it got there. In Chicago I used to find them, rarely alive, in my bedroom or dining room mostly. I lived in a timber loft and they seemed to hide or live in the wooden beams.

Maybe it’s a chigger a red chigger. They usually live in wooded areas but maybe you picked it op outside somewhere.

Lizzie asks…

i think my friend is making up her boyfriends and guy friends?

idk, i have a feeling that the guys my friend talks about aren’t real.
first, she always talks about a new guy almost every week and then if i ask about a previous guy she mentioned, she gets mad at me or stops talking and changes the subject.

she never shows a picture of any of them. one time she did show a picture of “him” and coincidentally my other friend shows a picture of a korean singer she started to listen to. my first friend then says “oh, that picture isn’t of him. he just didn’t want to show himself cause he thought he looked gross.” i don’t think it’s a coincidence that ALL of her boyfriends hate being in pictures. not even with her in them.

what she tells about them sound kinda far-fetched. all of them apparently don’t go to school cause they’re homeschooled and travel the world and that’s why we never see them. but, they can somehow go to her house right after they arrived in israel.

she say’s they’re really rich. they either live in a 5 bedroom house or a loft apartment in manhattan. they all have some kind of sports car.

and with her guy friends, she would say they were great friends for years but i only started to hear about them now. one of their names is alejandro and he just so happened to appear right after lady gaga’s song.

do you think her boyfriends and guy friends are imaginary? how can i confront her with this?

Administrator answers:

I know exactly what you’re talking about. I have a friend who is like that too. She has all these guys who are fighting over her and doing wonderfully romantic things for her, but I never see any evidence of it. She’s always over at her “boyfriend’s” house but we never see pictures or anything proving his existence. Your friend is probably making the guys up to make herself feel special. Believe me though, her feelings of “specialness” go right out the door as soon as you and her other friends leave. She is doing it because she’s jealous, or she wants to make you jealous. Don’t take it personal, and you and I both know that trying to trick her into giving herself away is just going to backfire and piss her off. If it’s not that big of a deal, just let it go. Let her have her fun, really that’s all it is. If it bothers you too much, then let her talk about her fantasies with other people and ignore her. She won’t ever quit, it’s a bad habit she’s learned to live by.

Mandy asks…

Should I let my ex take our 9 month old baby? I think he might be crazy.?

When I met him he told me he was a bull rider for his uncle that owns a bull riding company. His mother told me that his uncle owns an air conditioning company and doesnt have bulls. He told me went to military school in Baltimore Maryland and that he learned some kind of Japanese Marshall Arts and that he went to Japan to compete. He told me he went to college for criminal justice and had just a few credits left to graduate. His mom told me that he was home schooled in Conroe and that he didnt graduate. She said that he ended up getting his GED in his 20′s because a trucking company he was working for made him get it. He told me he was on “terminal disability” because he was dying of a “brain bleed”. He told me the Dr.s were suprised that he has lived as long as he has. I found his disability papers and he is on disability for post traumatic stress disorder and rage issues from being abused as a child. He told me his step dad beat him up and put cigarrettes out on him. His brother told me that was not true and that his step dad didnt even smoke. He told me he went to prison (Ferguson unit) for hitting a cop. I did a criminal background check and couldnt find anything. I then called the prison and they connected me to the TDC and they told me that there is no record of him being in prison. Whe were together for 6 years and he would always accuse me of stuff i didnt do, and rage and scream at me for like a couple days without stopping. Mostly about stuff that didnt even happen. He cheated on me twice. The last time I caught him in bed with the girl, in our old apartment. Both of his teenage children were there and its a one bedroom open loft apartment. His children had been at our house the night before and knew that he was cheating on me. Both of his children have mental problems and it is very obvious to people that something is wrong with them. I looked on his emails trying to figure out who this girl was and found messages that were sent from his blackberry to people on craigs list and safefling.com for sex. The messages had pictures of his erect penis and him lounging in a lawn chair. The stuff that was said in the messages was really disgusting and this had been going on for months, since our baby was born. He would call me and harrass me constantly so i had to block his # from my cell phone. He then started calling the house phone, telling me he wants to get our son. I told him he could come and see him any time he wants to, but I am not going to let him take him until we have a custody agreement. He says he is going to come see him and then doesnt show up. He has been telling me he is going to give me child support and hasnt given me any “because I wont let him take him”. When I told him I filed for child support with the Attorney General he was shocked and said “how could you do that to me?” I really dont want to let him take him, I dont trust him. But I dont know?

Administrator answers:

Your baby is utterly helpless, and relies on YOU to keep him safe. If you let that nutjob take him, and something terrible happens – how will you deal with that for the rest of your life??

You KNOW what the answer is to your question. Trust your gut, and don’t look back.
