What is something new that you got for your home (or your car, or yourself) that you just really enjoy and it makes a big difference?
After posting a few questions about HOME on Blurt, I came upon a lovely wool carpet on CraigsList. It is 6' x 9', so it covers most of the blackish rug in the apt. and it makes a huge difference (see answers).
Also I really appreciate the responses everyone gave, I am relaxing more with a different relation to my home than ever before!
Does the home where you live harmonize with its surroundings, or is it more just placed on top of the land?
When my friend from England came to live in California, he was distressed by the construction; he felt that English homes tended to be natural extensions of their surroundings, while California buildings were more just stuck down somewhere. So how do you feel about your home? (Feel free to post photos, if you are comfortable doing so.)
Below in answers is a photo of the Frank Lloyd Wright home Taliesin, in Arizona, which he began building in 1938.
