Do you feel like you don’t have enough space in your home anymore? Do you feel like you have to move? Pay a bigger mortage?
It really won’t have to come down to that. We promise.
Let Nina from A Beautiful Room work her magic and help you see what she can see. It’s a simple raising of a ceiling or taking down a wall and adding smart and stylish storage to help give you the space you need . . . and deserve. Nina believe that one her strong sides as a designer is being able to see things that home owners can’t quite envision without her help: “I can look at something and create a whole new look by just tweaking it a bit.”
Her latest project shows us just that — take an old, stuffed closet; a useless wall; and a tiny mudroom. Can you even believe the results?
“With three young daughters it was important to give the family the space they needed,” shared Nina. “I took down the wall where the closet was to open up the space, lifted the ceiling — there was an unused crawlspace upstairs — and added the mudroom shelving and cubbies for the girls.”

Despite living and loving New England with all our hearts, sometimes we just have to say enough is enough! Instead of all this white, we’re looking forward to all the beautiful sounds, smells, and colors of the Spring!
Meant for rebirth and renewable, the Spring is the perfect season to refresh your cozy home. So, open the windows, let the breeze flow through, and pack away all those warm, Winter sweaters . . .
Okay, that might be wishful thinking for now, but we can start with some indoor paint projects by injecting a little Spring onto our walls, furniture, and fabrics!
What are your favorite Spring color combinations?
Whether you’re a freelancer working from home or simply like an extra space to organize your things, you’ll love some of these inspirations we’ve found floating around the web!
1. Keep it fresh + open!
Keeping your workspace filled with natural light and bright colors will help give you that extra motivation to get to the office every day. Natural light will leave you feeling more awake and focused as opposed to a dark and unnatural lit setting.
2. Use those nooks!
Even if you don’t have an extra room to convert into an office, try making use of those small spaces and get organized. Convert an under the stairway area to a great place to work and organize your books, papers, etc. for an out of the way office space.
3. Decorate the walls
Making your office feel creative can help inspire those juices to flow every day. Decorating your office will give that space your unique touch and make your workspace more comfortable on even your most stressful days.

What holiday projects are you planning this year?
It’s that time of year where things may become hectic with the holidays rolling around the corner, but with all this time off from work – why not take advantage of the time and finally redo that basement or extra room!
As Better Homes and Gardens writes in their “Holiday Home Projects” article:
Whether your region brings ice and snow or clouds and rain during winter, chances are your outdoor living space will spend a good portion of the season out of commission. If your time indoors leaves you feeling a little crowded, look to your basement for room to roam. Finishing a basement offers a great way to extend your living space and also gives a higher return on investment than many other home projects. Whether you’re planning on selling your home come spring or you just need more space to live, consider finishing your basement.
So why not hire an Interior designer and leave the work up to them this holiday season! What better present to give yourself or your family than a new place to be without evening leaving your home!

We’re jumping ahead of ourselves, but when this time of season rolls around, it’s hard not to think of our holiday plans! And with those holiday plans usually comes decorating!!!!
