Hello AT, I am looking for an affordable but good quality mid size kitchen island that could store 2 counter stools underneath. 'Hi Teresa, have you looked at the Somerset Kitchen Island by Crate&Barrel? It has a lot of features built in that make it quite efficient. Not only does it have the butcher block top, but it also has a 10' drop-down leaf, for added work surface. The extension also makes a perfect place to put two stools underneath. It also has drawers, a cabinet, casters, and even a towel rack.
The Scavenger has mixed feelings about leather couches, because they can verge on reminding her of car upholstery. When the leather is soft and buttery like on this vintage sofa, she just wants to flop right down with a good book. MM.

Sure, you could just surround your dining table with individual chairs - but there's something about sitting down to a meal on a bench with people you love that's so communal, so convivial. A dining bench says 'I like you so much that when you get up to go the bathroom, I am willing to get up as well.' It's also a lovely design statement and a nice way to shake things up a little in the dining room. Midcentury details give this bench a touch of quirky character. I love the sleek, modern look of this bench - and the padded seat means it's friendlier for long meals. I love the light, airy look of this white-on-white bench. Like a modern take on the classic school chair - a great way to add a little rustic elegance to your dining room. A nice mix of rustic and modern for a very long lond. 'Nice and long and minimal and elegant. Also available as a 42' bench. The shape makes it modern, and the velvet makes it just a little bit fancy. This Florence Knoll-style bench is the perfect way to add a little elegance to your dining room.
Every once in a while we see something pink that knocks our socks off. Today it's this Union Jack Pillow that Victoria has on her white chair. The simple graphics and bright colors really make a strong statement, especially on such a blank canvas.
This would be right at home in the living room and definitely gives the Mac mini a run in the looks department. Click through for more pictures and what I think is the best feature of this design.... As I am currently in the market for a good looking living room computer to house all of my media and for casual web browsing, the Merium instantly caught my eye. Customizable covers along with HDMI and optical toslink outputs make sure that what is on your TV looks as good as what is under your TV. The best design feature in my opinion though is the foot stand. By raising the PC, a space is created that allows for the cables that usually end up all over the floor to be neatly tucked away, out of sight. It seems that this is only available in Scandinavia right now but hopefully a North American distributor will jump on this one.
Name: Veena Location: New York, NY Division: United States What do you love about your bedroom?: Living in a two bedroom apartment converted into three in New York City doesnât leave a lot of common living area to display and store items. Although my room is small, I get a lot of utility out of the space - a place to rest, a place to store, and a place to display artwork and other objects I love.
No matter the size of your home, I think it's really important to create a casual, comfortable, welcoming space in which to sit down and enjoy a meal. If you're in a smaller space, it's your breakfast nook in the morning and your intimate dining room-with the help of some candles-at night. Here are high and low budget versions of a fresh, eclectic look for your casual dining space. If you have a bit of a budget to play with and would like to invest in a few key pieces, try this look.... Get the HIGH Casual Dining Look: Wall art: All You Need Is Love Poster, Black Rooster, $365. Planters: Trigg Wall Planters, West Elm, $25/set of 2 small. Or, if you're a bit more thrifty with your home decor purchases or you're a renter on the move, try this look! Note that each look includes the cost of two chairs, so you'll have to adjust accordingly. Of course, you can always mix and match between the two to create your own custom look to fit your budget!
Few things in the world of decorating are more controversial than the pink bathroom. Now there's a whole new generation of pink bathrooms - and they're anything but frilly and froufrou. Blush pink tile - and matching wall paint - give this bathroom from Hearth Studio a subtle but sophisticated vibe. For an even more subtle way to bring pink into the bathroom, try using pink tile just on the floor, as in this space from Made a Mano. Now for something totally different - a bathroom that employs pink plaster instead of tile, beautifully contrasted with a steel shower enclosure and black fixtures. The light pink marble and light pink walls make this bathroom from Kingston Lafferty Design twice as nice. In this bathroom from Casas, light pink paneling pairs beautifully with a pedestal sink, and a modern mirror and light fixtures. The textured pink tile contributes to the slouchy, boho vibe of this bathroom from Sight Unseen.
Platforms may not be the first solution we go to when it comes to separating a room, but they really do a bang-up job when it comes down to it. Not only do they give homes-lofts, especially-some needed interest with the varying levels, but you can also take advantage of possible storage space underneath. Even if you don't have the time to build your own platform, you can save space by installing a ledge for a desk instead of a bulky desk. This is perfect for people who don't have to store piles of files-but if you do need a cabinet, you can slide one underneath, customizing how much storage space you actually need. Another great example of a custom desk ledge is from my dear friends Monika and Loren: They created their shared home office area in the mezzanine of their Oakland loft by adding a ledge underneath the existing one, creating a split-level desk. They divided the work stations by stowing the computer towers, a scanner, and even a small storage locker in between their respective areas.

Why I use color: Color is an easy way to create a focal point in a room. When I moved into this apartment, it was a neutral white palette. I painted an accent wall gold and carried it onto the wall behind the love seat to frame the art and increase its scale so it wasn't dwarfed on the high 10 ft wall. Use color, bold or subtle, to reflect your personality. Even in a neutral palette typical in many apartments, you can use color in the upholstery of your furniture, accents like pillows, floral arrangements, or artwork to reflect your personal taste. Samples let me experiment until I found just the right color.
