Small Space Solutions: How to Make Over-Night Guests Feel At Home

This year was one of the first we haven’t hosted overnight guests for Christmas, but it got me thinking about how we’d do it in this house if we wanted to in the future. We don’t have a dedicated guest room (or even bed), but I’m sure we could carve out a comfy space for visitors. So, with a focus on small space solutions, here’s a little guide to essentials that will make your guests feel at home, even if… View Post

Mood Board: Dining and Living Room Design Plans

So we have a deal. J is allowed to buy some fancy (yet, in my humble opinion, unnecessary) computer thing and I am allowed my equally fancy (yet also not entirely necessary) Chesterfield! Woot! I’m not sure he really understands what he’s agreed to, but I’m going with it, and quick, before he changes his mind. In light of that, I’ve nailed down my dining and living room design plans for the new house.

Design Board: A Cozy Combined Guest Room & Office

We’re still unpacking, so this is about as festive as you can expect from me this year…a combined office and guest room. We’ve never had a dedicated room for either, so I’d be happy with a multipurpose space like this, especially over the holidays.
