I’ve mentioned in the past that I have a red folder that has magazine clippings and sketches and scribbles of all of the things that I would want in a “dream home” (picture on the right isn’t it…that is just a visual for your viewing pleasure…). Here’s a “sneak peek” into the folder…
- One story
- large kitchen with an island and a roomy pantry
- lots of storage space and closets
- all hard floors with a few strategically placed cozy rugs
- detached garage with plumbing/sink and plenty of room
- wrap-around porch or another spacious porch
- indoor courtyard or great natural lighting (for taking photos)
- a nice guest room/area (or family room that easily converts into one)
We want our house to be inviting, welcoming, warm, lived in. We want it to be a place where people feel comfortable and where our kids want to be. We want our house to be the cool house – a place where people meet, a place where our family thrives, a place where laughter resounds and authenticity resides.
We don’t have that cozy guest room yet so we make do by converting our little office into one whenever anyone comes to visit. For example, our friends MJ & Shawna and their two little ones came for a visit and stayed with us for the past two nights. I was SO happy that we had a Coleman Queen Double High Air Bed ($79.99) to offer them…instead of the not-so-soft carpet. The air bed is easy to pump up and actually quite comfortable to lay on.
Air Beds are perfect for parents who like entertaining, but don’t have room for an extra bed in any of their rooms. When not in use, they can be stored in a little box. Then, they can be pulled out and set up in minutes!
Air Beds also are a great thing to have on-hand for camping trips, vacations, and overnight stays at friends’ homes. Coleman offers a wide selection of Air Beds at fantastic prices – ranging from $21.99 to $299.99, depending on what you’re looking for. You can find Coleman air beds at a variety of retailers throughout the U.S. and around the world.
