The birds are starting to move back to town, and they are gathering just about anything they can find to build their nests.
They don't seem to be very picky about color, or even material...not like us...
We know what we like, and we know what we don't like.
So why is it so hard to decide how to decorate our own nests?
Try this quiz, and please let us know if inspiration hits and you need a little help...

You would think that the smaller the space, the easier it would be to create an effective design. But in practice, the opposite is true.
Small spaces, especially those with strict requirements (like a half bath--it must contain a toilet and a sink!), can be especially troublesome. They also happen to be the most crucial to get right the first time.
Over the years, we've employed a number of different strategies for these tiny, essential rooms. Sometimes a clever design is key, and while this one to the right is not one of ours, we certainly appreciate the amazing tile work and the echo of the design in the window.
The picture to the left is from our parade home last year. Notice how the cabinet hovers over the floor? The under cabinet lighting is installed below the base cabinet. The soft glow provided by this unexpected light source serves as a much elevated version of the standard nightlight, while adding interest and a sense that there is additional floor space.
It is also pretty nice to be able to get the dust mop all the way under the cabinet! No dust bunnies here!
Do you have a favorite small bath feature? Have you done something innovative? Creative?
