My need to fill empty space is a trait I cannot shake. Whether I'm scrapbooking & attempting to cover every inch of 12x12 cardstock or I'm filling our home with artwork, knick knacks and furniture to ensure there is no unclaimed space left to deal with.
I'm trying to overcome this need and tell myself it is OK to have some white space. I will never be a minimalist although there are times I'd like to venture down that path.
One example of filling empty space is our master bath. We have ample floor space. Rather than fill this floor space with just a rug, I decided an ottoman would complete the look.
My daily internet browsing found it's way to JCPenney's online outlet and a fabulous deal on a round ottoman designed by one of my favorite interior designers, Chris Madden. It includes some of my favorite design features such as tufting, tassles and quilted fabric.
The ottoman provides a place for us to rest our tuckus while getting dressed and slipping into our shoes. I try very hard to keep it from becoming a resting place for clothing. It certainly has been a welcome piece in this room for some time now.
We can now shower, bathe, brush our teeth as well as rest in one of our most-used rooms.
