Smooooth



"A dinette set in the bedroom?" writes dw. "Isn't that a little... forward? If I were on a date, I'd be thinking I'd want something between dinner and bed."

"Isn't this the height of nonchalance?
Furnishing a bed in restaurants?"

at least an end table as a buffer...

but if this doesn't say wine, dine, 69 then i don't know what would make the message clearer!

i know i'd feel really classy doing it in a bedroom with office ceiling panels and fluorescent lights! just like at the office (though i wouldn't know anything about that).

It actually looks like a studio guesthouse, where abed and a table thrown together make more sense. If it is a bedroom in an actual house, for shame!

Those polystyrene ceiling tiles don't do it for you? Think of the gentle hum of the strip light...

oh gosh, mike b. beat me to it. first thing i thought was nick arnstein.

I can't decide if it's a table in a bedroom, a bed in a dining room, or the local Motel 6... I think that considering some of the horror we usually see on this blog we should just be grateful that the bed is made and there's nobody in it!

Perhaps an ill, elderly parent had moved in with a child and wanted their privacy. We had a similar set up for awhile when my Dad was terminally ill.

He could relax and read the paper, and have snacks, do puzzles, etc. in the middle of the night without waking up other family members.

LOL some people are just all about "quick and easy"

From the description: "4th bdrm (office) w/ French doors to pvt patio in lower lvl."

I'm guessing an addition or garage conversion. It looks more like a private room in a retirement home.

Maybe it's for games or crafts. I having a dining table in my craftroom.

Hello? Haven't any of you heard of a "Bed and Breakfast" before? *wink*

t- the first thing I thought of was the basement of the Catholic church where I spent many a dull Sunday morning in my youth, eating donuts with the other kids while my parents gossiped with their neighbors.

Not a pleasant association, really. Who puts fluorescents and ceiling panels in their home, anyway?!

The photo looks like it was taken at one of the rooms in a Homewood Suites.

It has four bedrooms. I'm guessing this one is the guest / craft / extra stuff lands here room.

This just gets worse.

Look at the front of the house. See the double doors under the front deck? That's the room in question. So, on top of the usual problems with a hotel style bedroom we have these added features:
1) The door near the table is the door to the garage. "Garage Access To Bedroom" is never a good thing.
2) The actual front door is up the stairs. However, who goes up stairs when there's a perfectly fine door on ground level?

Miserable humming from hideous ceiling is complimented by knocks on the front door from your parent's guests/delivery men, and Dad is always tracking his oily shoes through your room on his way up from the garage.

I think Junior is going to be found on the roof of a nearby office building with a deer rifle and a "manifesto" written in crayon.

'"Garage Access To Bedroom" is never a good thing.'

Unless you're Senior, not Junior, and you don't want to put up with Junior poking fun at you after you pull into the garage in your Buick.

Dropped ceilings in bedrooms are always a plus, right?!

green-minded person said...

Can't they make it a bit shinier??

with all the lights and the colors of the wall, ceiling and floor??

sheesh..

It does look a little strange, but one of my friends is a devoted scrapper and she has this same kind of set-up. It's the only place she could work on her scrapbooks without her (very young) kids messing with them. :)

Mama T said...

Um, does anyone else think the bed is really really loooooonnnnngggg?

Ruth said...

The dinette set is particularly interesting given that this house is rather large and spacious. I mean, little apartments furnished solely with Ikea folding chairs: put the dinette in the bedroom. But big huge house that already has a formal dining room with large mahogany-ish furniture? I question this.

The bed is for one whiole the table is at least for four - there is no logic in this room.
