After, sun shining in made it hard to get a good picture from this angle…

Livingroom sun shining in

The difference that did not cost a thing was to take down the over drapery and just leave the sheers… made all the difference.

just floored by these…

My favourite part of design is the space planning, working the furniture into a room in a unexpected way. I love it when a clients says “I would have never put that there, but wow I love it there!”

These are a few of the best known floor plans on television, if you are a fan of any of these shows, it will be such fun for you, we all know these rooms so well…

Isn't it cool to look at their homes this way… I love it !!!
