Love the idea of using sofa seating in a dining area. It’s pleasantly unexpected and helps create a comfortable casual feel:

Love this idea from Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere. She used a frame, hooks, and wire to create a sunglass holder:
See how she did it here.
p.s. Along similar lines, another idea.
My hubby and I will be heading out to the movies tonight to watch The Vow -have you seen it yet? Something similar actually happened to us a little over a year ago – my husband had a head injury causing him to lose a few years of memory and didn’t remember the time we dated, got married, etc., – so I’m prepared for it to be a tearjerker!
Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day filled with love!

How sweet are these two bathrooms? Beautifully mismatched his and hers mirrors over side by side sinks…

Busts are such a great way to creatively store and display necklaces. I’m absolutely loving this DIY one made out of wood:

My nightstand is small, meaning that I have to keep it really streamlined. I do most of my reading and note-taking in my bed, so for me its important to keep pens, highlighters and sticky notes on hand. Since I always sleep with my hair tied back, my nightstand also has hair ties or a clip. There is nothing worse than being on the verge of sleep, only to realize that you have to get up to get a hair elastic! I also apply hand moisturizer and chapstick right before I go to sleep, so having those two things within arms reach is a must.
I like to keep a cup of water next to my bed as well. For a long time this meant that I would end up with a collection of cups on my nightstand and none in the kitchen. I finally solved that problem by purchasing a special cup meant only for my bedside. I don’t bring cups from the kitchen upstairs because I know that cup is there, and I since I only use it for water (and it’s only me using it) I feel fine about simply washing it in the bathroom sink with soap and water.
I keep a small stack of books by my bedside, but make sure that they are only the ones I am currently reading. If it’s completed or neglected, then back to the shelf it goes!
