How and Why Your Home Should Be More Rustic

Though the use of rustic furnishings and decor came to fruition at the turn of the century, mainly by pioneers who were forced to …

However, learning to live in a small space is nothing new. Apartments, RVs, studios, trailers, just simply having too many folks in the family have been inspiring the tiny home lifestyle for generations.

When your husband needs the sink to shave, your daughter needs the toilet, and you haven't even brushed your teeth yet, a small bathroom can turn into a disaster. But with a bit of clever design, a tiny bathroom can be practical and lovely.

15 Creative Canopy Beds

15 Creative Canopy Beds: The private, royal ambiance created by the canopy bed was not simply the product of my overactive five year old imagination.
