Just Like Havin’ a Baby

For the last several months, I have been working on a complete redesign of my website.  I’m not entirely sure why I chose to undertake this project during the spring and summer – the busiest time of year for a designer – other that the fact that my current website was hastily posted “just to have something” when I opened my studio last year.  My new site will be SO much better, that I just cannot wait to unveil it!  But, WOW, does it take a lot of time to get things in order – writing to do, photos to upload – months of work and waiting until the final result is born.

My goal is to have the site up and running by Monday; I will be at the Town of Warren 150th Year Celebration event on Saturday, July 31 (come out at see me if you are in the Western Wisconsin area!) from noon – 6 pm.  I will post an announcement when it has been launched – I would love to hear your feedback on the new content and the new look!

Also, I encourage you to “Like” me on Facebook, to follow my blog and to check my website regularly for new photos and information; invite a friend to do the same.  And, by all means, please leave design questions, comments or thoughts for me on all those sites; I’m happy to answer questions, and to hear what you think of my work.!

Small Bedroom? No Problem.

I was just glancing through the latest West Elm catalog, when I spotted this very cool storage bed frame!  For anyone who has a small bedroom space, an option like this could save the day.

I would especially find it useful for a guest room, or other space where extra linens need a home.  Those extra pillows and quilts can sure eat up closet space in a hurry!

My bedrooms are small, making a dresser a luxury in each of them.  Having a bed such as this for storing off-season clothing would really be handy. 

I can’t imagine one would want to store things inside the bed that need to be accessed daily; a bed frame with drawers would be a handier alternative.  And, I would imagine that any under-the-bed storage has been lost with this option.  Although – I’d rather have my off-season clothing or bedding INSIDE the bed, rather than under it.  I’m sure it stays dust-bunny free that way!

What do you think?  Have you recently found a great storage idea for your home?  Share it – I’m always on the lookout for ways to save and create space!
