5 Ways to Create Your Summer House

Summer Decorating Ideas - The Inspired Room Entry

Do you have a summer house? This is the time of year when we might be scrolling through Facebook and notice that so many people seem to be heading off to their vacation homes or are traveling to exotic destinations for their summer vacation. That’s so fun! But even if you aren’t heading off to either place, take heart. The home you’re in is one of the best destinations of all.

Brilliant Solution for Hiding A Flat Screen TV

Roll Up Map to Cover Flat Screen

Years ago I featured a room with a pulldown vintage map installed to hide a flat screen TV. I was smitten and vowed I too would one day try that brilliant idea in my own home. So far, I haven’t had the opportunity since we don’t have a TV hanging on the wall. MUST remedy that. But the other day I found someone who did try it and WOW, does it look amazing!

Karen shared her room and this TV/map project over at Home Love Stories. Go see more photos of her lovely room and get the details on the pull down map. And check out her blog at Perfecting the Homefront!
