i’ve always loved the idea of a room with multiple personalities — say, a dining table that also serves as a desk — like this one above from lotta jansdotter’s old san francisco apartment (i’ve coveted this table forever!). not a table that just piles up with bills, or your purse and car keys when you fly in the door, but one with a multitude of real purposes. some of us tend to live in smaller spaces these days, so the idea of using a room for more than just a place to eat, or a place to work, relax, or play becomes a functional reality. by day it serves one purpose, by night another entirely. here’s some spaces that share what i mean.
i love the cozy window seat in this room, via design*sponge. and a sofa and bench, combined with the dining table and chairs (elle decor, via bright.bazaar), becomes one big happy space to hang out, dine and entertain.
some brilliant live-work-play spaces from design inspirationsk.
