Happy Friday

I loved everyone's take on the most important room in the home! For me, the most important room is the Family Room. It's where my husband and I relax together and catch up, where we entertain and guests can make themselves comfortable, and it's the place we spend the most of our time. Here's how all of your answers panned out...

The # 1 favorite space, hands down, was the kitchen / dining area. The kitchen is a significant place to many of you simply because it's a place to gather together with loved ones, prepare and eat wonderful food and enjoy good conversation. As Callie describes it, it's where "your heart & soul is fed with love, laughter and food." The kitchen is always the place people congregate during a party, no matter how small or crowded it is!
The bedroom is also very important to many of you. As Eve puts it, "it's my place to rest, for refuge, to dream." And Lindsey said, " I surround myself with cherished items that bring me joy. It needs to be both soothing at the end of a long day, as well as invigorating when you wake up. That is a very difficult balance to achieve. It is my sanctuary, my haven, my own private island."

The living room was another place many of you love to gather with family and friends, talk, relax and play bored games. "It's the room where I clock in many hours watching Lost and Sex in the City re-runs, read, welcome and entertain friends...it is also the first impression visitors get of your home." (Quote via the sale rack).
The bathroom is a special place to Georgia, because, "it can be a spa or retreat, and the possibilities for design are endless..." That's for sure! There are so many incredible things you can do to transform a bathroom...by adding a fancy tub, crystal chandelier, lovely wall paper, glass mosaic tiles - the sky's the limit.
The home office is one incredibly important space, especially for those of us who work from home. Jennifer Ramos described her home office as a place "where I can create and connect with the outside world via my laptop! The decor in my office brightens my day and inspires me."


Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I'll be expanding on each of these very important rooms in future posts. Meet you all back here next week :) Au revoir!
