Ace Your Space

Marion - I know extra cushions look pretty and add a bit of colour, but I restricted myself to just 2 small ones - any more would get really annoying. I love some of the styling but I really couldn't cope with little bowls of flowers sitting on top of my books. I want ready access to my books so I can read them. I do have a little wooden box that can take all the stuff like my watch, rings, glasses, etc.

I love the 'two in one ' room with the ladder storage unit - the white walls, natural wood, blue cushions - all so well thought out, makes for great style.

I try to keep my bedside table tidy but fail miserably. My husband is a neat person (I used to be before kids) and is besides himself every time he looks at it! Dare I say that the youngest child is 22! My husband does encourage me to keep it clean. From reading the article I do get an idea that I'll put my "junk" in the drawers and move the stuff in the drawers to the dresser. It seems to be a logistical nightmare!
