Kristen recently shared the room her four sons share and it sent many readers down memory lane as they fondly recalled sharing bedrooms with one or more siblings growing up. Reader KathinCO described a time when she shared a room with four other siblings and the genius twist her parents put on the experience:
I love that it is so light and that it looks so much bigger than it really is. The two rooms really make me feel like I own a bigger place. I also love the view of the Paris roofs, and my tiny balcony for breakfasts on Sunday mornings. The best thing, though, is that it is my first place. I decorated every piece of it and chose every object - it reflects my personality so well!
I love the gray color of my walls and the vaulted ceiling --it gives off a light and airy feeling in my studio. One of my favorite nooks is a seating area in front of my bay windows, giving a spectacular view of the city. As my design is "modern chic," it was a fun challenge for me to achieve it in my 1913 building.
I love that there are seven windows in the living room! I have a a beautiful view of my beloved prairie skies and can also see the downtown skyline in the distance. Clutter makes me feel antsy so I aim for calm by having a minimum of objects in my home (whether visible or tucked away in storage).
We love the light of our small home and the direct view on the park (Battersea Park in Central London) -- We love the fact that our home has no doors but tall grey panels that create a fluide space and geometric spaces across the flat -- We love that this small flat evolved and it is now the house of our 2 small kids (Carlo Domenico and Tancredi)
I love its charm, its classic elements and the layout. The house has original shoe molding, crystal door handles and has been refinished with black and white tile, giving it a retro flair. Despite its 'studio' label, the layout has the kitchen and living areas separated by a hallway, giving the illusion of completely different rooms.
It feels like we are living in a tree house tucked into the hill - our living room is surrounded by ficus trees and palms, and I have started gardens on the front balcony and rear patio. I love the archway into the kitchen, the well worn wood floors, and how the space is divided - the living room is very separate feeling from the bedroom area.
The patio adjacent to our bedroom is cut into a very steep hill which is covered in ivy and jade. Even though we are only a few minutes away from downtown Hollywood it is so peaceful and quiet. The table and grill out back are perfect for barbecuing with friends or drinking coffee and reading on a Saturday morning.
