CHIC COASTAL LIVING: The Enchanted Home: Dream Beach House & a Giveaway -- the little bench seat with plump cushion and throw pillows is inspired. Cute little reading nook or a place to shed shoes in the entry hall.
Love this idea for master bath doors. Fabulous solution when space is too tight for a standard hinged door. You can also put furniture on the walls next to this opening, just leaving enough space behind the furniture for the doors to slide.
OK, by now everyone knows that i am all about open shelving in a small kitchen. They provide needed storage and a place to display treasures and collectibles. Use wall space and go as high as you can, but keep it orderly and interesting.
