Working with a queen or king size mattress, consider the width measurement when selecting an option for foot of the bed placement.
A queen mattress measures 60 inches wide and 80 inches long, and a standard king bed measures 76 inches wide and 80 inches long.
Standard measurements for a loveseat range between 52-71 inches wide, and the width measurements of a settee tend to be comparable.
Another option to consider is a twin sleeper.
This option may be a better fit for the space and a more practical version of a chaise lounge.
The Tate twin sleeper with storage ottoman from Ballard Designs measures 58 inches wide.
A loveseat, settee, storage and decorative benches, stools, twin sleeper, or a pair of chairs remain wonderful considerations that will introduce form and function at the foot of the bed in a handsome manner.
A desk or vanity paired with a stylish desk, slipper or vanity chair has all the makings of a stunning focal point.
Utilize the area at the foot of the bed to enhance not only the function aspect but also the overall flow of a bedroom.

Palpable style, trends, energy and excitement come together to marvel the interior design, home furnishings, and home decor industry.

“A house that does not have one worn, comfy chair in it is soulless.”
Ah yes, a worn, comfy chair- an excellent metaphor. In this case, worn stands for warmth, inviting, and comfortable- the qualities that make a house a home. Home furnishings, accessories, and accents play a role in laying the foundation of a warm and inviting home. One of the nicest compliments I ever received was from an overnight guest visiting our home. What made the biggest impression on him was not how clean the house was or how well the meals tasted, but how comfortable the overall vibe of our home made him feel. Score one for the “home” team!
Dave the Builder and I go back a long way with Havertys. I distinctly remember selecting Highland House sofas, Lane occasional tables, and a Hooker Pine armoire for our first house. I knew exactly the look I was going for and Havertys had the quality pieces, the customer service, and the styles I wanted. Many pieces down the home furnishings road later, Havertys continues to be an excellent source for home furnishings. Havertys has a 97% satisfaction rating for the entire experience (from buying to delivery) and 100 locations across 17 states.
Personal style tends to evolve over the years as tastes and trends change. Traditional foundation pieces remain a go-to choice for me because the lines and finishes remain timeless.
Football, pizza and poker, and after holiday dinner family game night has got stylish fun written on it in the party-ready room.
Leather with nailhead trim highlights the Brunswick Cocktail Ottoman. Twisted legs evoke classic English style. How very pub perfect!
Havertys offers a vast array of styles and excellent value so that your goal can easily become a reality. Find a Havertys location near you using the store locator: http://www.havertys.com/Locate
The standard designed clawfoot bathtub continues to be a highly sought after and favored choice.
The vintage traditional style beautifully accents the almost any decor.
Perfectly positioned for comfort, and optimally placed under the window for the homeowners to enjoy beautiful views, the accents, color palette and vintage inspired fixtures put the pieces of the eased and elegant puzzle together.
Vintage inspiration coupled with modern freestanding design is the aesthetic feature of the clawfoot bathtub.
Beauty and function work together in relaxing harmony.
Influenced by marine woods and perfected by innovative design, the Laguna Spa Wood bathtub is a modern and glamorous fixture.
The Laguna Spa wood bathtub offers extraordinary design elements such as a soft sculptural form, glossy wood veneer finish available in Wenge, Walnut, Mahogany, Pearl, Iroko or Oak wood, and a dramatic pebble ring with elaborate overflow prevention technology at the edge of the tub.
Designer bathtubs make a statement while providing a luxury spa experience in the privacy and tranquility of your home.
Beautifully designed and crafted, a designer tub introduces luxury and style to the at home spa experience.
The look as well as the function serves well as an essential feature in both the design and the ability to transform a standard bathroom into a relaxing retreat.
The color foundation is laid and now comes the fun part, home furnishings and home décor accessorizing.
The home décor marketplace is on its game with stylish options at every price point.
Manufacturers and retailers have done a great job of offering beautiful furnishings that can be easily found, regardless if the interior design and decorating budget is on a shoestring or the sky’s the limit.
Our existing furniture archives will fill out the spots.
Dave’s favorite piece of furniture we own is an antique Walnut Scottish chest, and it will stand out against the wall color.
I have an 18″ X 30″ oil painting of a Victorian lady in storage that I can’t wait to retrieve and display.
The painting will complement the color scheme and furnishings beautifully.
There will be plenty of time and room to fill in when this part of the remodel comes to pass.

The cows have come home in a grand and stylish way in regards to cowhide home decor accessories. The look created by introducing one regal piece of home on the range chic can leave a design impression on even the biggest skeptic.
A trip to Dallas, Texas proved my theory correct. I think it’s safe to say this style may not be for every space and taste, but as long as there is farmhouse chic and home on the range style it is not going to roll the way of the tumbling tumbleweed.
When the architectural vision of near perfection captures the viewers attention and commands top billing it doesn’t necessarily speak to the weakness of the movie, but to the strength of the chosen piece of real estate.
Nineteen sixty seven is dear to my heart.
It’s the year I turned five, the year The Beatles introduced the world to Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and the year one of my favorite movies, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner was released.
I hit the Turner Classic Movies jackpot when I noticed it was on the afternoon viewing schedule.
Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner holds my attention on three points:
A relevant and positive message.
Three Academy Award winning actors showing why they deserved Academy Awards.
It’s the perfect, lovely, sexy, and inviting setting for the lady of the manor to discover that in fact her mojo hasn’t left the building, and for the viewer to glean a few ideas of their own in both the love and decor departments.
