Seeing Double

I have always had a desire to design a guest room, child's room, any room really...that I could put two twin beds in. Normally I'm not real big on symmetry but there is just something about two identical beds side by side with a night stand in between that I just can't resist. As I don't have a guest room large enough, and don't have any children (yet), it looks like there is only one room left - The Master!!!

What?!?!? If it was good enough for couples like Ricky and Lucy (I Love Lucy) and Samantha and Darren (Bewitched) then what complaints could my husband have right? (Yes I know those are fictional characters from the 50's) Okay, I'm not serious. I would never put twin beds in the master bed room...So for now I will just have to be patient and wait for a day when I have a guest room big enough to create my dream. Until then take a look at these amazing spaces with double the design pleasure - double the design fun.

I'm a little bit modern office...and I'm a little bit french chateau

Have I told you I am an interior designer? Yup, I work at a commercial architecture and design firm creating super modern, sleek, and techy corporate headquarters for some of Silicon Valley's giants like this...

When I am not at work (and sometimes while I am at work) my design passion switches to residential architecture and I day dream about "the perfect house". I could get lost in a good set of floor plans, elevations and details for hours. In the hopes that my talents will one day pay off big and I will be rolling in money, I have started to design my ultimate dream home. I won't show you what I have just yet but I will show you some great eye candy that is currently inspiring my plans.

and now for the oh so important interior...I love referencing these floor plans from Gordon's Castle LLC

So that's the dream...let's just hope that one day I can make it a reality!!!
