Where is the art piece in the living room from? I think it is a painting?

I think the bedspread is from urban outfitters. Love the mood of this place!

Beautiful space, but the large space between the artwork above the hutch is making my eyes twitch.

Our "office" is actually in our kids' playroom. We use one half of a closet with sliding doors to store everything out of sight. When the kiddos go to bed, we can slide open the doors to have easy access. We built shelves into the closet and use plastic storage bins to keep all of the supplies organized. Below the shelves we have a rolling file cart with a printer/copier on top and a narrow drawer unit on wheels that has small supplies such as pens, tape, paper clips, etc. We can easily roll the basics out and use the kids' art table for our laptops. Having a small, but devoted, space helps us both be more organized and aware of everything piece of paper we generate and keep.

Love this! For a minute I thought it was real but the drop cloth quilt gave it away!

Love this whole feel. After a string of homes from my hometown that were on the under-designed side (vacuums in the hall anyone?) I appreciate a put-together space. Those green pillows are giving me life!

It is difficult to get a sense of the floor plan in the space, but it seems awkward. Plus there are so many pieces that do not relate: a garden stool, tufted ottoman, rustic table, preppy sofa...and the scale is off. I guess the homeowner is happy but if I paid someone I would hope they would take my eclectic taste and help me define a specific vision or style and edit, edit, edit!

I love the idea of pulling the couch and out comes the bed - from under a platform....but preferably that platform is not a kitchen! What a neat idea for a rec room or finished basement though.

I had this: "The Land Of Make Believe" by Jaro Hess. I used to stare at it at naptime and make up stories. I was able to track it down for my kids playroom!

@apartment pants - a fellow twins' parent and I second every item on your list! The Dr. Brown's pitcher is a lifesaver. Now that the girls are older, we use it to mix smoothies for them.

Well, I have had both in the past year and I have positives and negatives for each. We originally painted our bedroom a dark terracotta - similar to the Pantone color of the year last year. The best thing about the saturated color was it kept our room dark at night. However, it just never looked right with our furniture and art. We decided to go bright white and added moldings for interest. It definitely feels more calm and serene, but we had to put blackout shades in our windows because it was so light at night!

Design Duel: Light vs. Dark Bedrooms

I recently painted our master bathroom a deep teal above white wainscoting. At first it looked very flat but we added a rubber floor (that looks like a tatami mat) a dark wood bench and bamboo shade. It seems the key to make it work is lots of texture and wood.

I love all of the purple examples! Is that a Rast hack in the 4th picture?

I ordered onesies by "Leverett" on Amazon - much cheaper and more stretchy (for our chubbier twin lol)

I use the Doxie Go portable scanner with a wifi card that transmits scans directly to Evernote. Paper that comes in the door is scanned at our landing strip and automatically saved digitally before being dealt with (usually shred and recycled). I also recommended opting for "paperless" statements and communication whenever available. Most retails will offer emailed receipts now. Using this system and reducing incoming paper leaves us about 80% paperless.

I also read from my iPad using Safari and have a layout that is 50% ads and 50% content (making what I come to read 100% smaller!). Am I doing something wrong? This description implies that the viewing is optimized, but I do not think that having the content squished left is optimized at all.

Pattern and print are my weakness! I figure it does not really matter if they all go as long as I love each piece individually. As for a common element: having nothing in common kind of ties the print mix in our home - at least that is what I tell myself! And white walls that give your eye a place to rest.
