See these gates? Use them to keep your dogs in or out of a room -- looks so much better than a baby gate! Lowes has them in different widths and heights :) Umm, great idea! The baby gates in my house are ridiculous and I'm sick of climbing over them.
love this staircase. Obviously most homes wouldn't need multiple levels of stairs, but the circle and the circular stair case are kind of cool. Hard to get furniture up and down though. - My-House-My-Home
I love the built-in banquette attached to the island. I want a banquette in my next house. I love this idea, although I think I would do an l-shaped island with an rectangular/square table instead of a round one.
