Coffee Shop Apartment

I've settled on a theme for the decor of my new apartment (which I of course have yet to see). I'm going to do it up like a coffee shop! I was thinking about what makes me happiest, and after decided that I cannot use Frasier as a decor, my thoughts naturally turned to coffee shops.

I bought beautiful, rich red sheets and towels yesterday, as well as an uber-soft blanket the color of foam on top of a cappuccino. I picked out adorable coffee-themed place mats (2) and one coffee-themed kitchen towel. I already have two Van Gogh prints to help tie things together. Once I get there, I plan to pick out some cappuccino-colored curtains and a few brightly colored coffee mugs. Then voila! Coffee shop apartment!

If only I could convince Starbucks to deliver to my door...

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
