Hello everyone! I’m looking forward to writing my blog and
answering decorating and home staging questions from readers! Here are two questions I received last week:
I have a great project. My son's room is tiny and oddly shaped and we

try to squeeze everything into a room that your son needs, especially if the
room is oddly shaped. When you have a small room, it is desirable to furnish
the room with furniture that may have a duel function, to save space. For instance you may want to consider buying
a captain’s bed that has drawers underneath the bed which may eliminate the
need for a dresser. I also love hanging shelves or storage units on the walls,
it saves floor space and looks great!
Besides traditional night stands what else would you use?

You can “float” a shelf by attaching it to the wall next to his bed. Another
suggestion to use a trunk or storage ottoman as a nightstand; or a small desk
with a lamp on the side next to the bed, which can have a duel function; or use
a side chair; or consider a storage headboard which can eliminate the need for
I hope my suggestions will help you in
finding solutions to your decorating challenges. If you would like to give me a call or email me to talk about this further, please feel free to contact me! Otherwise, send me your questions and I’ll
see you next week!
