This was my living room for a couple of years. I (unsurprisingly) don't have many pictures. The wood panelling was permeated by the 20 years of smoke of the pervious tenants and the "double living room" setup made it a pain to entertain. It was basically a glorified hallway and I never spent any time there. You better know I love my white walls and open kitchen/living room layout now!

I'm probably not the main demographic of this post... I was considering getting some eucalyptus leaves to put in my bathroom. Because I saw that on instagram and it looks dope. And you bet I'd buy a bunch of midcentury modern furniture if I had the money.

Eucalyptus should be bought fresh-cut because it smells awesome. PROTIP: if you can find a Russian spa that puts a couple sprigs by the steam outlets in the steam room? heaven. I'm not sure about the availability in Toronto but it shouldn't be to expensive...?

The more durable midcentury items (end tables, etc) have been pretty convincingly ripped off by any number of fly-by-night Chinese manufacturers. You can find a passable Noguchi table, for example, for $200 any day on Craigslist.
