I have always been fascinated by castles and secret trap doors or secret entrances in a building that lead you into a room no one would have imagined was there!
I have yet to install some of those into my own home (and trust me, I will!), but until then, I try to find creative outlets of those “secret” spaces.
I was looking in my living room today and smiled to myself thinking back to Christmas- when it is slightly cold in our AZ heat. I remember that we were getting ready to go out in the backyard for a boat ride when someone asked for an additional blanket to keep them warm. Side note: now I would have grabbed the Snuggie, either a pink, a zebra, or a college one. BUT even still, this thought made me smile because when I opened one of the decorative baskets in our fishing theme room to hand out blankets, no one expected it.
Might not be as fancy as the mission impossible bookcase that rotates when you pull on the right book, but it’s the same concept.
So, for my friends out there who want to get a kick out of how to share space and store everything you will need with flair, don’t forget about an ottoman!
I swear, people completely forget when they are putting their feet up on the leather ottomans that match my couch, there is space inside and no limitation to what they can hold!
Make sure when it comes to being organized and sharing space, you look at all of your areas and think of a creative way to make it all work.
We never forget to go to the auto man when our cars need something, so let’s not forget to go to our ottoman when our guests need something. It’s a no-brainer! :+)
Thought of the day: Ottomans are the triple threat: decorative, functional and unexpected!
