Ideas for your home office

I love looking at other peoples home office. I can get tons of ideas from home office pictures. I read a story the other day that the desk top computer will soon be dead. I'm sure that will change home decor somehow, but, you always will need a desk right ??

Blending Rooms

When you do not have a lot of space to begin with, its hard to know how to blend rooms that spill into each other. The first thing I do when planning a room is ask myself exactly HOW is this rooom going to be used. Every inch in a small home or apartment is valuable space that you don't want to waste ! Washing machines are now making there way to bathrooms and kitchens. Thinking differently about how we live is very important in small space planning !

These are the type of pictures that make me think....

1. Some COOL freaking people live here !

2. Small chest are PERFECT night stands, if you have any space by your bed .

3. That couch is so beautiful but is it comfortable ?

4. I really really want a cool looking fridge.

5. I could have a coffee bar, couldn't I ?

Apartments !

Here are 3 apartments from around the world. The top one is from Hong Kong. Very nice although I'm not sure about the tub. Love the tub, love the look, but what about privacy ? Still, so pretty. The 2nd one is from Sweden. Love the white, so simple, and clean feeling. The 3rd is from the United States. I LOVE this one ! It was in the AT small cool contest. The rest of the place is just as amazing !

Repurposing what you have

Sometimes a great decorating project is right at your finger tips! Look around the attic or basement or shed! Everyone complains of having too much stuff, so look at your "stuff" differently! I LOVE the mailbox in the entry way..so clever! The chairs for Fido's food ? Genius!

Give us your best space saving tips for the kitchen !

I would love to hear about your personal tips for storage and/or making your kitchen feel bigger. For me, I use a two tiered plate rack on my counter, right by the stove. It frees up a lot of cabinet space and is so handy to serve food right off the stove. Also I replaced big wooden kitchen chairs for low modern ones. It makes the space feel much roomier. How about you !?!?

Banquette Seating

I LOVE banquette seating. I've been meaning to design up something for my kitchen for the last 10 years it seems. These pictures are varied in decor style, but they are all so nice looking. Do you have banquette seating and if so are you happy with it ?
