In their most recent home, a 1950s Craftsman bungalow, space was limited at 750 square feet, so with their family growing, they decided to add an addition to the back and vaulted all of the ceilings to make it feel larger. Making semi-tiny living more accommodating for a large dog and an infant also meant creating multifunctional spaces, such as this colorful office and child’s playroom.
Rose’s clients, who are active grandparents and world travelers, asked her to make the space more habitable for an adult daughter and grandchild currently residing there. In this section of the house, she was tasked with creating kids’ and guest rooms, as well as bathrooms, with an open design that would accommodate different uses and aesthetic tastes, depending on the user at any given time. One room that was designed with special care was the client’s office. Previously, things just seemed to find their way into the space for storage. Rose created an elegant home office that touched on all the functional needs, even down to adding a sleeper sofa for company. Another challenge was the six-week timeline from initial design to orders, deliveries, and installation. Within this window, Rose and her company had to clear four rooms and gut two bathrooms, then rebuild them from the bottom-up.
During her horribly insecure teen years, Mandy fell in love with fashion, but her 5’10” curvy frame didn’t fit the typical mold. Naysayers told her the barriers to enter the fashion industry were too high (adults are the worst!), but she didn’t let that stifle her. Today, she uses The Curvy Blogger as a positive corner of the web, where she hopes to help girls all over the world find confidence in their own skin. If the photography on her blog is impressive, it’s because Mandy is also a wedding and elopement photographer. She credits her other half, Kevin, with giving her the boost in confidence she needed to ditch a steady day job in order to pursue those creative passions.
In my house increasing up, we had the very small kitchen. It had been an append–on to the home in the 1950s, but apparently the before owners idea they shouldn’t append too greatly – it was teeny. The relax of the home wasn’t huge, but it was The relax of the home wasn‘t huge, but it was unlocked. It flowed from space to space until you got to the kitchen also then you were gash off from each alternative activity. When I initial saw Paige as well Todd‘s kitchen, I was immediately excited for them to have a pretty space, but additional so for them to possess connection to the relax of their rock, CO house. It creates being in the kitchen so much additional enjoyable. Plus, the consequence actually is gorgeous.
