We never wear shoes in our home, and I politely ask guests to remove their shoes. I provide ladies with slippers or slipper socks that are freshly laundered. We don't have pets. We have very light colored carpeting in some rooms, but even if it were dark colored, I expect guests to be respectful of my wishes and take off their shoes. I always take slippers when visiting friends, as I, too, have had injuries to my feet and need the extra cushioning that slippers provide. If you insist on keeping your shoes on in others homes, then you should at least use shoe covers like the ones delivery people wear. They are available at Lowes.

I love the tiny home solutions. You always can make a giant house with a big budget look great. But making a liveable space with a tiny budget and a tiny space is amazing.

I love my kitchen! When we bought the house I told my husband that I will make him best pierogies ever on that lovely counter top and I've kept my word! My pierogies making adventure is turning into a real business, check out my FB page under " Bon Appètit

Here is a photo of our recently gut-renovated kitchen designed by me (and a photo of my freshly baked bread). Our house was built in the late 1880's and I wanted to pay homage to its history while adding a bit of an edge (kitchen faucet, range hood). It gives me great pleasure working and playing in it every day :) If I can dig up the before pics I will post them as well. Houzz was hugely inspirational in the design process!

Such a lovely and charming cottage. I always like blue so this is a winner for me. I especially love the paisley fabric used in the master's bedroom. I have a similar set of that blue paisley for bed linens in my daughter's bedroom. Her room looks so cool and tranquil every time she puts it on. I always regretted not buying another set for the master's bed.

The only thing I would change would be that humongous thing on top of the dining table... too distracting.... it draws the eyes away from the lovely view outside the windows. Everything else is just perfect. That kitchen - WOW.

@MommyD, it's funny, you are not alone in that opinion. Barbara told me that the driftwood chandelier is the most polarizing thing in the house - a real "love it or hate it" moment, which we agree is usually the sign of a strong design move. She said some of her clients look through her portfolio and say they love absolutely everything about the house except the chandy, which of course helps give her direction for their projects and anticipate their preferences. She loves it as a focal point and I do too, but it's definitely a love it or hate it - not many other opinions in between!

In my old NYC apartment I had full wall dressers in the bedroom and storage/ shelves in the living room -- under all the windows ... I loved having storage and the large counter. In the room is wide enough it does not change the typical layout

Such a good idea to utilize the space below windows. Built-in storage like bookcases would be my preference because of the flexibility. They could be used for books, collectibles, baskets, canvas storage boxes, etc. and could be changed out with ease. Enjoyed the article and the examples!
