The only one I liked was the simple, sexy one with the black chandeliers on either side of the bed. Strictly a glam girl's room. But I don't know if a guy would want to wake up in that everyday. Maybe even a guest room. That's the room you can go wild in.

These rooms although very attractive seem cold and sterile. And what happened to color? Everything you see is white or beige or neutral pastels. I so enjoy color, textures and pattern, but everywhere you look now are white sofa's, beige rugs and neutral colors. I don't think pets or kids would work well in these rooms. Not realistic.

For anyone interested there is a great piece of software for mac that I use to catalogue a large proportion of my possessions (my books in particular) but it covers other items too, like electronics or tools. Its called delicious library and the beauty of it is that purchases can be scanned in using both the barcode or manually. The program will also provide a full description such as year of manufacturer, value etc and can be published to the web for online access. Unfortunately it is a mac only program but for those apple users out there I recommend it. It took a while to scan my 1000 or so books in but now its a quick matter to input any new items as I get them. The items are displayed as an image on a visual shelf so that its easy to identify them at a glance.
For those of us who don't always trust the cloud based services the other device I recently purchased is called a "transporter" which is a personalized cloud storage device. You would need 2, one at your house and one somewhere else such as a relatives place. With it you can back up any files straight to the second device and if any catastrophe befalls your property you can instantly access the same files on the second device remotely.

Great article, although I did not have the hassle of settling with the insurance like you did after our house fire, you do bring up some great points. I was very fortunate to have a friend/agent who had been looking out for us for 17 years and he had an adjuster, to what was left of the house, two days after the fire and a check another two days later. My story may be the exception to the rule, but definitely getting the house rebuilt was WAY more difficult than dealing with the insurance company.

Any ideas is appreciated. And thank you, have a great week.

Cathymia, All these great ideas work for a free standing bookcase. Accent the back wall with paint, fabric, or paper. Just have fun with them, you can always go back to what they were.
