|Function with Flair|
|Stylish Seating Solution|
I've had a love affair with small spaces my whole life. Whether it was family meals at our kitchen table in the tiny farmhouse I lived in as a child or snuggling up with cousins around the fireplace at the cozy cabin my grandparents owned, I have such fond memories of small spaces. Looking back I marvel at how the women in my family actually managed to create harmony and sweet memories with so many children underfoot! As a designer I can now see the ingenuity of my mother and grandmother's wisely selected furnishings that fit the spaces but expanded as needed for special occasions and extra guests. To this day I love casual entertaining where all are welcome...no such thing as too many guests...there's always room for more! I hope you enjoy the Designer Tricks for Small Spaces in this summer issue of Coastal Living magazine. I think I've used every single trick at one time or another. Happy July 4th Everyone!
