Multifunctional MessSix months ago, Chicago residents Georgia and Nolan Burke purchased a condo to make room for their new baby. They love their new home, with its high ceilings, spacious layout and elegant hardwood floors, but they have a spare bedroom that is lacking style. The Design on a Dime team comes up with some funky ideas to clean up the clutter, cover the windows and create a cool, relaxing space.
This spare bedroom serves as a guest room, an office and a pass-through to the deck. Cheap, white paper blinds cover part of the sliding glass door to block the sun; they're functional but not very stylish. Cluttered bookcases are a catchall for everything from books to grilling tongs. Several pieces of colorful Mexican artwork — the one indication of style in the room — are lost in the clutter.
