So I've been redecorating my place - I've been here for two years, and I was never completely satisfied with the way it looked. I mean, I'm young and living in a loft downtown - I should really be doing better. So in an effort to do so, I've decided to become the guy in Fight Club who obsesses over his living quarters (but I hope to avoid the creation of a second self). I imagine this interest will wane pretty quickly, so I'm doing my best to compact the whole process down to a few weeks.

I've been unloading my furniture (via Craigslist and coworkers) - I hope today that I can dump off my two sofabeds, my breakfast table, and the shelving unit by my front door. I picked up a new sofa last week (which should be delivered today). I've also settled on ideas for painting walls - the far wall will be an accented red, while the column will get some chalkboard black (I hope chalkboard paint works!).

I've been honing and refining a couple of ideas over the past week on what to do - I did manage to rearrange half of the room (I'm very happy with the layout of the living (entertainment) area and my sleeping area) - but I'm having a very hard time figuring out what to do with my desk, my dining unit, and my piano.

Unfortunately, I know that even after this, I'll only be 60% there - I'll probably be hitting up all my design-oriented friends (thank goodness I have a bunch) for feedback, once "Phase 1" is complete.
