I will always beat you!


If Mother had her way, I'm sure we four would have grown up in a room like this. "It's practical!"

Being the youngest, I'd probably be the only one who wouldn't complain.

oh, i want that now! i'm facing the prospect of moving to a studio and i've started plotting a creative sleeping-space/storage solution.

i dreamed of this, often, when the four were all still at home

but we never would've gambled on the white...heavenly as it is...a little more navy, some good sturdy canvas (there's cream, at least), something to withstand a pack of happy ruffians...

i love the lights for reading, and imagine a small stacks of books at the end of each rumpled comforter...

Sarah- I can see you turning this into something amazing!

Victoria- I don't think the 'rents would've made the white gamble either. As it is we had free-to-beat-up pine panelling in all its 1970's glory!

If I ever become wealthy enough to have a ski or beach house I'm going to create a dorm rooms for boys and girls so that lots of family members and friends can visit, and there will be room for the kids. Besides, in a vacation home it's kind of like going to summer camp.

Every night it's like you're on the Orient Express.

BDV...you're right! Smelly towels, underwear in the most unfortunate of locations, sand EVERYWHERE.

Michus...But which of us would survive?

LA...the two oldest boys get those, my sister an I are rewarded the downwind bunk.

Micah summed uo my thoughts completely. Too perfect. I always wonder why hostels aren't popular stateside -- would be worth whipping up something like this and trying it. I stayed in something somewhat similar in Stockholm.

Nick, it does have a very Swedish look to it doesn't it? I wouldn't be surprised if it's where it is from. They are such great thinkers/planners!
