There’s truly nothing better, to me at least, than sharing your home with family and friends. That’s a big reason why my husband and I sought out a two-bedroom space when we went home shopping last year: We knew we wanted to use the extra space as a guest room to be able to host out-of-town family and friends when they visit. We’re not the only homeowners who made an «extra bedroom» a priority, either. There are more bedrooms than people in the United States—to the tune of around 33 million. And even though they can’t all be guest rooms, I’d bet my mortgage that there are still a whole lot of empty mattresses out there. (далее…)
Picture this: a caravan of gypsy Grannies and Gramps cruising down Route 66, watering the planter boxes and waving from windows at passersby as they roam cross-country. A scene that may seem downright Lynchian could soon be very real as more and more retirees opt for tiny homes. (далее…)
I love small spaces, but I also love swimming, and since I was very little, I’ve always wanted a pool of my very own. So my dream home is a little house, with a little pool, surrounded by a small and tasteful lawn.

This home in Winnipeg, Manitoba was given a main floor renovation and Jaclyn Peters gave the space a modern and minimalist makeover with an earthy vibe that I love. We started with oiled white oak hardwood flooring and a neutral color palette. The kitchen was completely gutted including the builder basic corner pantry and the breakfast nook was utilized to create space for a new large island topped with Quartz countertops and seating for 5. We added two floating white oak shelves for warmth and texture, then a classic white subway tile backsplash and industrial lighting by Schoolhouse Electric. Two windows flanking the new marble fireplace surround were added to the living room, as well as custom made white oak floating cabinets and a custom media stand. All new furniture, rugs and accessories create a cozy space to entertain. The Scandinavian inspired powder bath features charcoal slate tile, black millwork, white quartz counters, black pendant light and more art from the homeowner’s collection.
Not to start off on a dramatic note, but no one in the history of humankind has ever complained about a surplus of bedroom storage. «Unfortunate-looking» bedroom storage is a much more valid complaint, which is why we’ve turned to the Marketplace for some beautiful vintage highboys to get your bedroom in order (while staying stylish).
