It's that time of year again! The season where I search the internet for beautiful holiday homes and daydream the day away. There's something about the onset of the holidays that makes a modern winter cabin sound even more luxurious — and this Swiss masterpiece fits the pipe dream to perfection!

Q: How do I arrange my furniture in a living room with only two usable walls?? My kitchen takes up an entire wall, and another is floor to ceiling windows. I don't want to completely block out the daylight with curtains, but I need ideas for arranging furniture in a stylish way with minimal glare on my TV and computer. I have a TV stand, computer desk, and a love seat to work with.
Square or Round: My mother has had a set of these square wood plates in her cupboard for years, but I only just noticed how unusual and lovely they are... especially as they age.

Name:Lauren Spencer Kingand Ava Location: Silver Lake, Los Angeles, California Size: 800 square feet Years lived in: 6 years; Rented
Lauren was living in Paris when a dear friend from Los Angeles told her about the apartments right across the street from hers and how she dreamed of Lauren living there. Lauren didn't think too much of it at the time. However, a few months later an apartment opened up at the building and Lauren's friend went to check out the place for her and sent her photos. Lauren fell in love with it right away, signed the lease, left Paris and moved back to LA. It was meant to be.
