You had a great start and some good base pieces.

I think you should move the bed to the window wall. Check out the bed setup on Making It Lovely.

http://makingitlovely.com/2007/04/04/going-into-details/

It makes the bed more dramatic and romantic with the drapes behind it. You can then use the wall where you bed is now to make a cosier nook with your chairs.

You NEED cushions for the chairs by the way!

Try to go bigger with accessories and lamps. The scale of your room is large but your current accessories are too small for the room.

Is voting still open for these entries? This seems really unfair to give them extra exposure before the contest is over.

Also I'm sure Gregory can chime in with the dimensions but those two "offices" are ver, very small. These spaces (at least the sewing room) would have been used as storage for most people.

I think everyone is confused by this statement:
"Two of the weird small spaces were turned into offices (because they're very conscientious about what they buy and therefore don't have a ton of stuff to store they didn't need to use these spaces for storage). This way, even in a small space they each have a place to retreat to in order to get work done and have a space of their own."

What Laure is trying to say is that because Gregory and Emily are conscientious of what they buy, they are able to use what may have been storage space for someone else as two office spaces/ sewing room instead. It's not about buying office items, its about not needing the storage space and using it for another purpose!

Have you ever lived in a small space with another person? Having a retreat or a space to make your own is a wonderful way of keeping the peace. It's also nice for someone who works from home to be close off the "work space" when they are not working.

PS. I like the clothes out in the open. I think it breaks up all the white storage and gives that wall a little interest. I'd hate it if it were disorganized and random but this looks neat and visually interesting.

Love this. You've made it feel much larger than it is and it looks like you have fabulous storage. Great job! Thumbs way up :)

This is a great example of a new build that incorporates all the details that new homes typically lack. The architectural features and finishes of this home are gorgeous. The woodwork, tile, moulding and light fixtures are stunning and yet it still looks warm and more down to earth than much of the luxury homes that you see in the DC area. I love the contrast of the beautiful wood with the walls and it provides the perfect backdrop for all that photography.

I get where the "cold" comments are coming from but I think you need to take a second look, assume that these photos are a bit staged and that these are obviously meticulously tidy people - aside from that it really is quite warm.

This look is not attainable by everyone because it requires some $$$$ but I think we can all take away some inspiration here. I for one am thrilled to see a luxury home that isn't a giant drywall box of a mcmansion.

I think the image associated with this post is getting people confused. Is the door in question a solid wood entry door? If it is an interior door there is a possibility that it is a hollow core door and that could get a little trickier. I suggest calling a pro for this. It's not too hard to get the door off the hinges and a pro will plane it properly in no time.

I think this is a good idea and a great start to this odd window placement/size problem but I think it could be executed better. Try using one rod (mounted a few inches lower than you currently have it) and get a third drapery panel to give it more fullness when closed. This will also create a better illusion of one large window rather than two.

I found a bunch of options for you. I think that these should be better priced than the one you saw on Melrose. Hopefully one of them will work for you. The first is what I think is the closest match to what you are looking for.

Laure - I'm so sorry to hear about the break in. What a horrible thing to happen and especially just after you've moved in! I hope you are ok. It takes a while to get over the feeling of being violated and feel safe again but hopefully you can move passed that and make this place your home. Good luck!

I had the same table too and sold it on craigslist in October 2008 in LA. I loved the table and it worked perfectly in my studio apartment where I mostly used it up against the wall with only one leaf out. It was sturdy like that but not so much when I had the whole thing open. It's not so much that anything is wrong with it - its just the design. It's not really something that children should be playing around. You could potentially put a screw or even something sticky where the legs touch the bottom of the tabletop to keep it upright but my suggestion is to keep the table folded up somewhere for later (it makes a great entry table when closed) or pass it on to someone else on craigslist.

My boyfriend and I have both been laid off and we live together in a small two bedroom apartment. The second bedroom is my boyfriend's "office" and I have my computer in an armoire in the living room. We've been spending nearly 24/7 together and surprisingly we haven't wanted to kill each other. I'm actually really enjoying it. When we were both working we'd come home and catch up on personal emails and reading and have dinner, watch some tv and go to bed. Now we have real conversations, cuddle on the couch, talk about our future.. I was afraid that it would do the opposite but its actually brought us so much closer.

I'm sorry but this is bad. The clutter, the odd mismatched scale of everything, the cords! There is so much to look at yet nothing at all that grabs my attention. I also counted 4 chairs and a stool. That seems like a seating overkill for a small bedroom.

I wish a little more information was given in this post. There are some interesting facts that could have been mentioned.

The building is a former warehouse and now has LEED Gold status.

Much of the building was funded by donations specifically earmarked for this project

The building is not just the office headquarters for employees but services to the community and patient support are also available here. I think that having a fun, interesting and good looking building is a refreshing change for cancer patients and their families who spend so much time in clinical hospital like environments.

Actually two (XL) twin beds pushed together makes a standard King size mattress not a double or a queen.

I dont think the end tables or lamps are overscaled for the room or the rest of the furniture but definately dwarf the settee.

Lady J - you are correct. The house tour is from 2007 but I believe it was reposted at some point this year so that must be what they are referring to. BTW - so funny that you knew I've moved twice!

It is always a thrill and a surprise whenever I go to Apartment Therapy and see my old apartment pop up! I have a nicer place now with some more room but that little studio will always be special.

We've been hit hard by the economy this year too but we decided that getting a tree would be important. It makes the house feel warm and gets us in the holiday spirit. I think its important because we can't really celebrate in other ways without spending money. The tree was from home depot for $25 and I made a cranberry and popcorn garland to decorate it. We're going away for a few days at Christmas but we are here for the whole month before so why not enjoy the tree?
