They had plenty of room for a full-just chose a twin. Glad love is young, because comfort is older.

Not sure what the multifunctional use is. Her living room? I have never understood a boxy loveseat in a boxy room. If this is her living room as well, I would have lost the loveseat, put in a small round coffee table and surrounded with 3 or four chairs, where one of the chairs could swing around to be the desk. Call me OCD, but the balance is way off in the after, even trying to correct it with the drapery to the left side doesn't work.

Beautiful room . If you're not using the white door without a handle. Is there a reason you didn't paint it blue or find some artwork to cover? Or is it truly a nod to adjoining rooms?

These are fun! Especially when you get some people. Like this one. The chest of drawers with the painted knobs was may favorite. . .not sure to believe or not.

Lovely. Nice job. Just happy to see something on this page beside moderne. This mid-century craze is becoming seriously boring.

I had moved from Mass to Atlanta to retire and while there had a tragic loss of my savings (identity theft with no recourse). Finding even a little job was difficult. After going from comfortable to scary. I looked into moving back to my really small hometown in Iowa after living in cites for 45 years. I must say that everything she said in her article, I have found the exact opposite! Housing is about the same as Atlanta, but about a 3rd of Mass. I moved to a smaller house, just 2 tiny bedrooms and my energy bills are 1/2 of what they were in Atlanta and way less than Mass. I no longer need a impressive car, so I bought a used one; insurance costs $200 yearly! They only things I found to be more expensive is winter groceries (summer garden) and water, horribly high. I have always managed to find a simple job and because I could no longer find thrift stores, I went to ebay and other outlets like them. As far as decorating, the Midwest is filled with antiques from Victorian through Mid-Century and retro. With garage sales, on-line county sales clubs, just being friendly, you can find just about anything. I opened my own store on ebay. You have to be more creative in small towns and make your own fun and culture. And certainly here, get used to two kinds of bad cheese, and not having food even remotely exotic. But where else do you find kind people who take care of each other in every way.

Like grass in a yard, wood, unless it's gorgeous is highly over-rated. I like your makeover- it's you, pink and all.

Fabulous home. . .I could move in and not change ONE thing. Finally, an AT house tour where the owner knows how to hang art. Thank you for sharing.
