True story: during a particularly trying bout of apartment hunting, we found a charming little apartment with one glaring flaw - the toilet was in a room all its own, and in order to access the second bathroom which held the sink and shower, you had to walk down a hall and through the kitchen! The point is, lots of homes have quirks, and some of them are interesting and endearing (as opposed to moderately unsanitary like a bathroom without a sink). Undecorate: The No-Rules Approach to Interior Design ($25) is a collection of living spaces that celebrate their idiosyncrasies with interesting design elements. It's excellent inspiration even if your home is as normal as can be.
