Good news friends!! In the midst of making a space functional for your family, you do not have to sacrifice design!!
Sometimes I tend to slap a band-aid on the problem areas just so I come move on – because I feel stuck and I can’t seem to find a solution. I’ll go back to my running example – our entryway. If you notice in the pictures, I had hung hooks on the walls inside the door for the kids to use…
But the space where I hung them were small and the hooks were too close together for large items like backpacks and coats. Band aid did not work.
Sometimes I tend to leave things as they are in their non-functioning state because I can’t have all I want. You know, I can’t afford to knock out that wall, so why bother… Anyone else relate??
But, you can make a space function for YOUR family and make it pleasing at the same time.
My go-to place for inspiration these days is Pinterest. Maybe you love design magazines, or the latest Pottery Barn catalog. Whatever gets your creative juices going.
Check out spaces that are similar to yours and gather ideas and inspiration. Find things that might work in your space and things that you like to look at. Here is my Pinterest inspiration board for the entryway.
Step 4 : Collect some pretty inspiration
Form and function wrapped into one – it is possible.
