Purge and her fiance Fernz live in a share-house space — but that hasn't kept them from creating an amazing punk rock bedroom hideaway, utilizing some of the tricks she's learned for decorating without losing your lease.
My husband and I have slept on springless mattresses the entire time we've known each other — so we're coming up on six years of no-springs-in-our-bed glory. It's been so heavenly that now I just wonder: why would you EVER sleep on anything else?
