What this house lacks in closets, it certainly makes up for in windows. There are big windows in every room – most of which give us a garden view. It is lovely to be able to have a view that overlooks our garden for a change, and I’m very grateful for it because I know that a lot of homeowners would long to have windows that have a view of the garden.
The previous owners of the home have left it in good condition, but I can’t wait to put my own stamp on this property. Isn’t that what owning your own home is all about? It’s an opportunity for you to let your creative side run wild and to create a home that you look forward to relaxing in after a long day at work. So, as soon as I get the chance, I will be making some changes to this home.
The first thing to do? Change the windows. Though they complement the house wonderfully, I think I want to change them to a style that suits me more. Luckily, I know that somewhere like this window installation in Denver company have a wide array of choices to select, and I’m bound to find the one that suits the house and my design needs. Some may say that a job like this, and replacing doors and changing the wallpaper are boring, but I love it. Plus it gives me the excuse to create some lovely curtains to drape over these windows once they have been installed.
While D is away this week studying in England, I’ve been busy trying to get things organized, and homey.
Sorry, darling. Your Mad Men poster will not suffice. Although don’t get me wrong — I like that you are willing to share the house with Don Draper.
I made this dresser our linen closet, with folded quilts and rugs tucked beneath.
Plants and farmer’s market baskets make me happy.
As does a well organized, tidy bathroom with a pretty curtain runner:
Any other creative storage ideas for small spaces? I would love to hear them. Otherwise, this is all happily coming together.
