Interesting observations, though “unhealthy obsession” does not hold true for everyone. Frankly, I have to take mini-breaks from reading Apartment Therapy & all of my favorite design blogs on a regular basis. If I read them every day, I would probably replace my living room carpet every six months. And then I would be poor & sad & we don’t want that.
Instead I am good & glad & and I really like my apartment. (For now.)
