My house feels too big! After three days in a minimalist loft in Seattle, I’m thinking it’s time to hoist the bed and use some of the ideas this small space sent home with me.
My boyfriend and I are looking to buy a new mattress in a couple of months and we wondered if there were any environmentally-friendly options.
I suppose a follow-up question is if there is anything we should know about disposing the old one! Since your website has inspired us to make more conscious decisions about our lifestyles I was hoping you would be able to offer some input.
Eight years ago, I moved into my current home. That was when I began putting together my unusual office, a small space filled to bursting with books, curiosities and Professor Snape collectibles. It is also whimsically known as “the dungeons.”
I think of the room as a collage of sorts, a work of art, a sanctuary. I love arranging objects in an aesthetically pleasing manner, and finding ways to cram yet more of them in every nook and cranny. I love jars, and bugs, and memento mori… I love things that belong to a more genteel age: quills, ink wells, hourglasses, Oriental carpets.
I live in half-a-house, sealed up and separate from the rest. The other half is occupied by my dad. As a space that wasn’t really built as an entire house, it’s a kooky space, but it’s fabulously cozy. The back “room” is our study/music room/art studio AND guest bedroom.
I have a king bed in a pretty prominent corner. How can I make this look less like a bed that got lost on its way to an ACTUAL bedroom, and more like some sort of daybed situation?
If you were to choose a new sleeping arrangement, would you consider a nest? Pick your favorite from this slate of human nests!
