Milo Makes a Bold Move, Probably. (Help!)

Okay, here’s the thing with our funny little nook. The only thing that has really stuck in that room is the paint color. Well, the Vittsjo, too. But what has changed is the rotating cast of chairs and rugs, and for the longest time, that room has sat mostly empty.

The Workshop Plans

We have a lot of questions, like, how does a standard size in the most popular modelKEEP READING >
