Ikea !

I do not have a Ikea store where I live, so I sometimes forget about how great this store is. I'm in love with the shoe rack and may have to incorporate that in my own home. If you have a Ikea store near you...LUCKY !

Use Your Corners !

When space is limited, look to the corners of your rooms. Shelving, bookcases, all sorts of possibilities!

My home office

A few post ago a discussion about home offices and how to hide all those cords came up. A few people wanted to see my home office. Well here it is, nothing too fancy, and as you can see, CORDS! Its not really that noticeable and YES I know I need to straighten that mess up ! My desk top is a cheap closet door stained brown sitting on top of 2 file drawers . I love my hotel cubby because I can stick tons of stuff in it and keep my desk straight. My chairs are mismatched because I do not have 3 of the same and right now, it does not bother me.

What's in a name ???

Ok here is the "is my face red" post of the day. ALL this time I thought the address for my blog was small SPACE style. Well it is place. Don't ask how I have gone this long without knowing. Its been nearly 2 years. So, instead of having to shut down this blog and start all over, I'm sticking with PLACE. I think I just need a vacation. Anyways, I thought I would mention this just in case it matters. :)

Naked Windows

I would love it if I could have no curtains on my windows. In the real world we need our privacy, but if you have a window that has total privacy, a lot of light is a great way to make a room feel bigger. Now if you can get past the fact that nobodys out there !!

Home Ofiice

Although these home offices are decorated in different styles, they all are stylish and efficient. I do wonder about how they hide all the endless cords, my home desk is 2 file cabinets with a stained closet door as the top. It hides ALL the cords :)

Small Kitchens with everything you need

You only really need a few key things in your kitchen to make them function. It may be a coffee maker or a food processor, only you can make that call. Whatever you use everyday is a good place to start. Just remember NO CLUTTER !!
