I love my window seat nook on the second floor. I designed it in to my second floor addition project for charm, but it is also SO practical! The extra depth makes it easier to move furniture upstairs. The oval window floods the second floor hallway and stairwell with light. The bench seat is a favorite spot for the cats and the top flips up for extra storage. The bookcases on either side also swing open to provide easy access to attic space. - Monica Miller, CKD, CBD, CR - J.S. Brown & Co.

I am proud to say that even the smallest of cottages can have good taste and style, have some room for entertaining, and be the comfiest livable space!

I built this fireplace after getting inspired by some old silos down the road. Repurposed steel roofing washed in muriatic acid to rust, and some poured concrete slabs.

My "mole hole" - part of lower level redo, previously off-white walls, beige berber carpeting, traditional red brick fireplace (painted charcoal to match bench).

My sunroom with french doors and white wicker chairs. Whatever seasons we are in, it feels like summer. I love my prairie style windows in my renovated 1950's ranch home.

I did not want what the architect designed so I came up with this. Most commented and liked detail in our new home.

When I inherited my parents' custom-made 10' table, china cabinet and buffet, we took out the back wall of our great room, enclosed our back porch and added a bar at the far end. The floor is the original porch brick floor. It is a great space for accommodating our large family dinners and for entertaining.

My fireplace. The brick had been painted and a slick white caulking was in the grout lines. It was awful. I removed the bench and brass frame with chain links from the opening and had it covered in cement. I painted it with a coastal color with two shades of peach. Since I live in Southeast Texas...it rarely gets cold enough for a real fire. so much of the time it houses candles.

Most proud of subduing a dreary window overlooking the cement entry to a parking garage: a 3' screen reveals only the upper brick, hides the chipped/crooked radiator, peeling pipes, and ubiquitous snarl of surge protectors/wires, and brightens the corner with softer diffused light. Recently added: a tropical pillow; an inexpensive fair trade table befitting my African mask collection; and a miscellany of thrift store glass and ceramics to replace darker items on my "grand circle". Above are two favorite thrift store finds, the too-tall-but-I-love-it alabaster shaded lamp and my Indonesian duck, flapping lazily in the rising thermals.

We removed a wall to add the old dining room into the family room/kitchen space and added french doors to what was the living room, turning it into a formal dining room. Could not afford to re-do the kitchen with this renovation but removed the raised bar and matched the existing counter tops and added a back splash. Love the great room space and the way my 'new' kitchen is open and inviting.

Our 1929 Cotswold Cottage Tudor home was flooded with almost 5 feet of water in the Mouse River flood of 2011 in North Dakota. We re-built, as we love our home, and tried to keep everything as it was before. The only room I really wanted to update was the kitchen. My favorite part of the home, that sold us, is the windows in the living room and I love my new kitchen. Our home is listed on the National Registry of Historical Homes and we are proud to live in our organized neighborhood in Minot, ND.

We used to have a brick fireplace wall all the way to the ceiling. We replaced it with shelves and a library ladder to celebrate our love of books! The two tones of wood and creative re-use of the old mantle as supports are two of our favorite things. Besides the ladder, of course!

My Kitchen - but specifically, my island top. Solid cherry and absolutely exquisite, but most important, hand-crafted by my dad! Receives a comment from every single visitor. This photo was taken before we moved in 8 months ago, and it is still just as beautiful!

Shutt- They are pallet boards we recycled. We simply stained them various colors....(after cleaning them well).
