    55” OLED for $1500 use the other $500 for some bean bag chairs.

    You must have this. Preferably in velvet, and compatible with black light. It's the bachelors law.

    In my first apartment, I had the classic cinder block and plank shelving. Not sure if it's still in vogue.

    with the obsolescence of CDs, DVDs, their associated equipment, etc. this concept has been greatly simplified...

    So is the reflection of the girl taking the picture so she can show off to all her friends how great of a decorator her BF is?

    Go get good and hammered one night. Afterwards, walk thru IKEA asking pretty women there what THEY think you need... See what turns up delivered next week.

    Is one way to go...

    Pool Hall w/ Guns/Fishin' tackle or Man Cave w/ Guns n Bikes are both Classic Design looks and are always sound. Must include Neon Beer Co. signage tho. Or Dogs Playing Poker While Cheating print on wall. Hawt females dig that stuff. Or should.

    No Farrah Fawcett posters... well, maybe one. You know the one.

    The woman says you need to repaint.

    You definitely need an area rug.

    Overall pick a good neutral base color with a couple accent colors.

    Check out a Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel catalog/site. Apparently it’s hard for her to decorate for someone unless she knows them.

    She says to post some pics of our place so you can see the neutral/accent color in action. So I’ll try and get some.

    Add some basic furniture and call it good enough. Keep it simple and don’t let the women ruin the place. They can never leave well enough alone

    As long as you keep it clean and tidy they don't care. Unless you're really going for the uppity type. But I would guess not.

    You’re going to need a table cloth for the cable reel.
