Woof! Doggie bath time!

Now I am not saying this would be something I actually want but has anyone ever heard of having a dog bath in their laundry room? This must be the epitome of all luxuries for dog owners. I understand that dog baths exist, but there are special stores you go to get your give your dog a bath. Why do you need a special place to do it in your home? All I’m saying is that this seems a bit extreme to me. I guess the only people that would need this is people who show their dogs. Do people do that for a living? Either way, this doggie bath still seems a bit unnecessary to me. Plus this one is in the laundry room. I feel like dogs should never go in rooms where clean clothes might be. I lay my clothes out and fold them and sometimes they hang dry. When that dog comes out of the bath it is going to shake and get everything wet/dirty.

 

What is your opinion on this inner home doggie bath? Do you think it’s a little too much, like me? Or are you in favor of having them?

Up and Down a Spiral Staircase

I really want my home one day to be beautiful and elegant. Something I personally think is chic (and I know not everyone will agree) is a spiral staircase. I’ve never seen a spiral staircase that I don’t like. I think I think that because it’s beautiful on it’s own. It doesn’t need a special rug or anything else to put on it because it is good as it is. It doesn’t need anything added to it to make it better.

What are your thoughts on spiral staircases? Do you love them? Hate them? Do you have an opinion on them at all? What do you staircases look like?

To work or not to work, that is the question

I have to say right now that I’m a little bit disappointed. I’m currently on the look out for some good desk options. So naturally, I typed ‘desks’ into the search option of Pinterest. I honestly didn’t find much of what I like on it. And that’s a first. Usually I find too much of what I like on Pinterest, but never nothing at all. Can anyone give me some advice on what a good desk would look like? And where I should put it? Something affordable would be great! 🙂

foR kiDz onLy!

When I was growing up, the basement was the place where the kids hang out. I absolutely loved it. My parents would hardly ever go down there because they knew it was a ‘Kids Area’. All my friends would come over and that’s where we would play and have sleepovers. Looking back, the basement wasn’t really all that great or that kid friendly. All it had was a carpet, tv, some furniture, and a desk. Pretty simple. But there was always room for sleeping bags for all my friends.

Now that I’m older, I know not to overlook the importance of having a good basement even though I know I won’t use it too often. It’s really for the kids.

But this:

This is SERIOUSLY for the kids! (probably the boys) But wow — with this kind of basement your house will be the ultimate place for sleepovers!

Do you have kid rooms? What do they look like? Where are they in your house? Or do you think its better not to have one at all?

Where did they go?

Here is a list of things that are hard/annoying to store:

  1. Toaster
  2. Blender
  3. Washing machine and drier
  4. Detergent
  5. Coffee pot

And this list could go on forever. These are not exactly the prettiest items we have in our home, and in my opinion are better not to be seen unless in use. Seeing everyone’s kitchen appliances out on the kitchen counter isn’t always the classiest look. We all know it’s there so why do we have to see it? Anyways, look at what I just found!!

Awesome

Awesome

 

I suggest you check out this website for some images of even more ways to hide those pesky appliances.

Do you have any ideas of creative way to store appliances? Please let me know of some your ways to create extra storage! 🙂

 

 

Sleep over perfection

When I was a kid, I had a sleepover almost every single weekend. It was great! We would get some sleeping bags or just a couple of blankets and have such a great night. As an adult, sleepovers as not so common. And they definitely are not called sleepovers. As kids, we would sleep in the same room but as adults we need a whole separate room for our guests. As much as I like guests rooms, LOOK WHAT I JUST FOUND ON PINTEREST!
