So, lately I've been getting pretty excited about Spencer's (soon our) condo as a new project. I've scoured craigslist on a daily basis, memorized the Ikea catalog, and become familiar with Target's vast furniture line (who knew, right?). As per usual, I've also found inspiration from sources that are a little bit out of the budget for now (i.e. Pottery Barn) and the blogs and magazines that I try to keep up on regularly like Apartment Therapy and ReadyMade Magazine.
As I see it, our new abode's most important purpose is to feel like home. But then there's also an element of function that somehow needs to permeate what I now dream of as our tranquil and serene escape from the world. With one bedroom, this is somewhat of a challenge. Combining our sanctuary of a bedroom with a workspace, and somehow finding a place to store a bicycle while maintaining it in an easily accessible place (so as not to discourage riding it) with no garage is another challenge. Any ideas about either of these would be much appreciated.
There maybe hope for the workspace in the bedroom idea though. I can't quite remember how the closet situation is configured, but I think that there are two. Which means, that something like this just might work.
Wouldn't that be fab? Just take off the closet doors, hang a curtain and some shelves and voila! This not only saves space, but it puts the workspace out of sight whenever it needs to be. We could even put a filing cabinet on the floor. I guess the only question is, where do we put our clothes?
