my favorite room is actually more of a ‘spot’ – it’s this little space under our staircase that i carved out for my desk. for years i went back and forth over what to do with this funky little spot, and one day i had a lightbulb moment, and scooted my parson desk over, and voila! it was just what the space needed – it’s a cozy little nook for all of my kooky finds, pretty books, mail, sketchbooks, plants and magazines. it also gives a ton of character to our attached living room – now we have something to look at instead of an empty corner! i’ll turn the monkey lamp on at night, and the space makes the whole room feel warm and lived in. i love it!
