For me one such area that seems to be a constantly changing display is the nook underneath the stairs. Though small, it's an important place for two reasons. One, it's actually in direct eye line from the front door, so it's one of the first places you see when entering. Two, in a home as small as mine with so little built in storage, no area can be overlooked as a place to stash my crap.
Originally, when the stair room was my office, a buffet was tucked into the space underneath the stairs.
|You can see the buffet through the open door to the right.|
At the same time, I had the other matching brown chair slipcovered and used in the dining room to create another seating nook with a 50's console tucked beside the fire place.
After the addition of a thrifted orange wing chair and moving the console table:
This shows how a little more pattern really livens ups the space, as well as how the nook slides underneath the stair case.
|The BoHo look I love.|
