They say kids room with the bunk beds. I don't think "kids" need microwave and coffee pot access as seen through the door way.

However, I probably won't be displaying photos in a bundt pan. One must draw the Houzz line somewhere.

Sadly, I've found that my homes have looked most awesome when preparing to sell. I think it's a combination of two factors: 1) finally finishing all those little things that you've been meaning to get around to and 2) staging the house for sale (with or without a professional stager). Other things that make sense include:

Decluttering with an eye towards what you need to store v. what you need to let go (give away, sell, toss)

Like a previous poster noted, it's really good to bring all your favorite accent pieces together---to dust, clean, and think about how to re-position/purpose them. I do this every Christmas holiday season and love that the things that I love can be used in creative ways

Deep, deep, deep cleaning--best done by professionals

Window cleaning--depending on your windows, again best done by professionals

Great post! One common misconception about wine storage is you need a huge space or huge budget.

We've worked with clients who have huge homes and we've worked with people who have converted a small closet into a cellar or just want a small rack for their counter top. We're definitely more than happy to help out with small spaces!

Love a lot of them - especially the design with the desk, and the imaginative creation of a "faux bay" in the flat wall - I would guess you could use the built out wall sections for storage, and have the nice little nook

Bonnie when I was a little girl a friend of my grandmother's gave me an old wicker dolls pram, even as a little girl I loved it and felt honoured it was given to me but it had to live at my grandmother's home (for various practical reasons) but I knew even then it was mainly so I'd have some thing to play with at my grandma's and even then I think I knew if it came home to live at my house I'd lose interest in it straight away and not make use of it? (pretty sure I would have been told this too).
I tend to think the dictionary and stand is best left in your home for now for the reasons you initially presented, that you gain great joy see your grand children rushing to use it, its an actively for them at your home - its a win win for all.
I still have the pram and can't say my daughter when young appreciated that much, again maybe because she had access to it all the time by then? Or maybe I've been too precious about it because I was raised to be that way? - which leads us back to the whole de-cluttering of emotional items. . . . . Its one of those items its hard to know what to do with now?
It is very good to be able to discuss this topic in an open forum.

houscom -- thank you for your advice about the dictionary and stand. Thinking about it after reading your experience with the doll's pram puts it into perfect focus.
