i have my bed floating in the center of my bedroom and I love it. It works in a space that is long like my own. The bed is backed by a dropleaf table, which divides the room, so I can have a seating area on the other side. there is plenty of space for my full size dresser and closets do the rest for storage. I was skeptical of the floor-plan when a family member suggested it, but now I would not have it any other way!

the new tour format isn't great, but it's not totally unusuable either. to work around the ads and scrolling, i click on see all thumbnails. after you click on the first photo just hit the next button or space bar to go through the album. it's really not that bad.

what a lovely and unexpected use of natural and artificial light. i really enjoyed the whole tour. then i realized that this designer's work was posted before and that i was equally amazed at the time by her work in other spaces.

thank you!

i think the blue and the red are already very strong colors. i would mix in some bright whites to balance them. maybe in a coffee table and/or throw pillows. red, white and blue can look so fresh and graphic when done well.

i like this look. i have one of ikea's alseda floor seats in my living room and it adds a nice touch. however, i do admit that it's more comfortable (and cute) topped with a nice throw pillow.

i really appreciated your insight into what sets Chicago design apart from other cities. i live in Brooklyn but i'm from Philly. my favorite AT house tours are usually the ones from Chicago. it just seems that Chicago folks have a sense of home that resonantes more with my own than the New York sensibility. i love the part about midwestern friendliness and work ethic!
