free design notes: 4.25.11

When designing, part of my thought process is seeing a room for what it’s not. I know this sounds odd, however I think you can create interesting spaces in areas that are unexpected. Much like the image below of an upper floor hallway. More than a way to get from point A to point B, there’s another element of living here that can happen along the way.

Thinking outside the box and using a space in a different way than you may have first thought can add just the right amount of interest to your home. Do you have a typical space in your home that you could use in an unexpected way?

Would love for you to share!

  1. this is beautiful! I could spend all kinds of hours here and can have my bags packed and ready to move in when you say!

  2. Love the idea of a repurposed space! Have always enjoyed sitting on the stairs reading oddly enough – this looks far more comfy
