It's been too long since I've hosted a book giveaway? So I wanted to make this one super good. Just by commenting on this post - you'll be put in the drawing to win the book Downtown Chic by Robert and Cortney Novogratz of Sixx Design
I've been flipping through this book on and off all day - they give some really good advice for making your home yours, and flea market shopping tips!
This is just a little nibble of the content:
How to Flea by Robert and Cortney Novogratz
• The great stuff sells before 6 AM; get there early, before the dealers snatch up the best things • Get a large cup of coffee - it's too early to be up on a weekend • Negotiate. You can always walk away and go back later • Be sure to bring the measurements of the spaces you are furnishing and a tape measure when shopping.

So not all of these kitchens are tiny cottage nooks, but they aren't the glossy granite and marble monstrosities you'd see in the high-end home decor mags either. Most are modest and give me hope that no matter how small the kitchen in my future rental, I can give it some charm and make it work for me...
Some vintage stools add coziness and floor to ceiling cabinets and creative storage solutions makes this small kitchen clever
Look at enough home and decor mags, and you'll be able to draw up a template for a pretty "designer" bedroom, but to come up with something that's beautiful and truly "yours" is a bigger challenge. These bedrooms really give you a taste of the owner's personality...
