One of the challenges most people face is creating multi-functioning spaces in their home. Real estate is gold, and implementing space efficiently is crucial to creating a home with good flow. A family with two young daughters in nearby Cypress, California approached me with a unique request: to create a beautiful and functional space that would serve as a work space for the girls, as well as in-home ballet studio space, and TV den that could also convert to sleeping space for guests. All in about 350 square feet. Challenge accepted!
1. A saturated palette of forest green and magenta is kept playful with a backdrop of bright white walls and trim, with the exception of an accent wall which displays an eclectic gallery wall and camouflages the wall-mounted television.
2. Layered textiles add dimension, and rugs anchor the various "zones."
3. Light wood tones and brass accents create warmth and modern vibe.

3. A wall mounted mirror and barre, framed by blush curtains creates the perfect practice corner for the aspiring ballerinas.
4. Two facing settees that convert to full size sleepers create a cozy conversation area or guest sleeping quarters.

5. A long and narrow desk along the wall provides ample space for both sisters, and a wall mounted picture ledge or shelf adds storage or display space. Closed storage under the desk stores paperwork and supplies.
