Writing Update: Rainbow Bookshelves, Audio Books, and More

I’ve needed to do something about my book shelf situation at home for about two years Problem was, I really liked the bookshelf I had, really liked my living room set up, and didn’t want to just get rid of a perfectly good bookshelf (or perfectly good books). So I kept piling all the new books on the floor near the book shelf, telling … Read More Writing Update: Rainbow Bookshelves, Audio Books, and More

Reading Spaces: Reading Corner

I think for most of us, our reading space looks more like a comfy chair in a quiet corner. Or just a quiet corner somewhere. Anywhere. The comfy chair would be a bonus. All images via Houzz

Reading Spaces: Window Seat With Storage

The only thing better than a window seat is a window seat with storage. Because if you’re anything like me, you’re probably sneaking books into the house while your significant other is away and playing dumb when he asks why the pile on the floor is getting bigger.

Reading Spaces: Hammock Lounging

Hammocks are one of those things that sound better in theory than they really are. I used to always wish for a hammock to lounge around in and then when we finally got one, I discovered I didn’t like it all that much. For one thing, you keep it outside usually so the bugs and spiders get all over it. For another thing, it’s … Read More Reading Spaces: Hammock Lounging

Reading Spaces: Hallway Book Storage

This week’s Reading Spaces isn’t so much about a reading space as it is about ideas for book storage. Put your hallways to use and squeeze in some built-ins! Several years ago I worked for a psychologist who had tons of books in his home. Books on books on books!

Reading Spaces: Modern Home Library

Bonus rooms and lofts are super popular features in San Diego homes. It seems that a lot of home buyers (and owners) like the idea of having a flexible space. Is it another a bedroom? An office? A game room? A theatre room? A library? Obviously, we know what I would use my bonus room for. If I had one. Which I don’t. Anyway. … Read More Reading Spaces: Modern Home Library

Reading Spaces: Coastal Window Seats

My mom and I have always harbored a not-so-secret desire to come into possession of a house with a window seat. So it’s only fitting that I begin my new series, Reading Spaces, with a round-up of amazing window seats! When I’m not reading or writing, I’m busy with my day job – working in real estate! I see tons of beautiful spaces (and … Read More Reading Spaces: Coastal Window Seats
