Dual Purpose Furniture

Small space living calls for furniture that can be used for one than one function. These can be pieces that fold, morph, stack, rotate, expand, or collapse to make the most of the square-footage you're working with. Whether you are downsizing, starting out, or have a funky floor-plan, being able to efficiently use the space you have is a serious skill!  Below we scoured our favourite sources of internet inspiration for a few examples on creative ways to make use...

From the Archives: DIY Ombré Tea Towels

We have been looking back at our archives recently and decided to revisit our Happy Kitchen Project from 2015!

What’s Wrong With This Room?

Welcome to another episode of What’s Wrong with This Room? When we are look through magazines or online we see images that draw us in and some that don’t seem quite right. I think it is important to know that some images are styled just for the photo and may not necessarily work in real life. Sometimes there are too many cushions on the couch because it looks great for the photo but in real life they would be thrown...

What’s Wrong With This Room?

We had such a good response to our last blog post on What’s Wrong With This Room, that we decided to try and post these on a regular basis. So….here we go. Can you tell what’s wrong here?There is a lot we like about this picture, but in our opinion, the carpet is too small.
