Sneaky storage stacked up atop each other in the 17 by Torsten Ottesjö and Lars Isestig slaps us with the cheesiest grin we have ever had! It’s the most fun you could imagine hopping through the narrow staircases, crooked bookcases, silly spiral floor plan. Peekaboo drawers say “hi there” beneath each step; a delightful corner kitchen leads a twirly ballet move from the sink to the island. The peaceful nest to rest down in the bedroom covers the ceiling and walls with a textured wallpaper. There is something special about everything everywhere as the designer’s goal was to “lets the environment take care of people and not the other way around” where they strive to “build apartments that hug you”. Mission accomplished, well done guys!

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
