coffee + cre8tive {aug 23 '06}

I'm so excited that readers are sending in photos of their space. Thanks, guys! When I mentioned that I'd like to start showing off reader spaces as well as posting space issues (with the goal of obtaining YOUR advice, along with offering some of mine), I didn't realize how many of you would be interested! I'm very pleased that readers are stepping up, so as long as emails are arriving, I guess I'll have to start posting reader spaces! I actually think that this feature will sharpen all of us and create a more interactive blog, a space we can all share ideas, especially since I know that so many of you are loaded with talent.

So to recap, from time to time, I'll post photos of reader spaces for those that A) are proud of their space and simply want to tour us of a room (or entire house!) OR B) photos of problem areas from readers that are seeking tactful constructive advice with hopes of helping them out of a design jam. Many of us love to decorate, and spend so much time finding solutions in our own homes, so why not pool this wisdom, sharing your passion with others?

First up today, we'll tour a reader space in the Netherlands, it's a serene city oasis, you're going to love it. I also have a space challenge to post, along with a bunch of fresh finds, so stay tuned, I'll be back soon!
