Happy Monday, darlings! This doesn’t happen very often, but I am so glad the weekend is over. It was filled with so much cake. Eleven layers in all. Luckily, my job is done and it’s on its way to Cork to be iced!

So back down to business. While I was baking away this weekend, I spent a little time planning our new dream house.Β 

My new, imaginary dream house will desperately need a landing strip. You know that space where you can drop bags and keys and take off muddy shoes and hang coats? We need that.

At the moment, we’ve been using our entire front room. It’s like we have a whole runway, overrun with size 14 sneakers (his, not mine), my bike and helmet, bills, papers, mail. I am losing the battle.

Since we finally got rid of our futon over the weekend, the newly painted sideboard is moving in. I think we have a chance at creating a mudroom landing strip of sorts.

If we weren’t limited by space and budget and this being a rental, here’s some inspiration I think we’d take.

What do you think? Do you have a landing strip or a whole runway?

    You know, I like both landing strip and full runway. I think the key is choosing which one is right for your home. But either way, having a little space like this makes all the difference (and helps you get organized too).
