What do you get when you put one adult, three kids and five pets in a 100-year-old Craftsman bungalow?
Our next real home in California.
I love seeing how people lay out their spaces, especially when they have close quarters. This home looks nothing but cozy to me. What do you think?
I live in a 100-year-old Craftsman-style bungalow. Correction… I live in a 100-year-old Craftsman bungalow that is far too small for the four people and five pets that inhabit it. (Yes, that’s right, I said five pets.)
My living room and my bedroom are the two rooms I *try* to keep relatively uncluttered and kid-mess free. And this is what it USUALLY looks like… shoes on the floor and unmade bed and all…
The living room is extremely tiny and awkwardly laid out, so seating is always an issue. I found this little white bench on CL (of course) and it doubles as extra storage (as does the ottoman). No joke… my 3-year-old loves to sleep on it.
I am recently divorced and I wanted to set up my bedroom to be very girly and very “me.” However, my bedroom in this house is actually just a long, narrow room that is not technically a bedroom because it has no closet. As you can see, my king bed takes up the entire end of the room. So I have to make do with what I have. The wood paneling looks rather ghetto, I know, but I grew up in a mobile home… I’m used to it.
