To me an attic can be a very enchanting place, its quiet, away from the bustle of everyday and almost has a eerie/magical quality about it. I'm reminded of the movie 'A Little Princess" where the girl was locked away in a school attic to live above all the other girls who's parents where still alive. But how beautiful it was! A place to be herself with no rules and it didn't hurt that it was high above the streets of Paris :)
But for the more practical people that we are these days....Ladies, we all need the extra room for our fashion don't we (and an opportunity to make your friends jealous)? How about an official dressing room, Hollywood style?
Or an obvious choice for people with lots of out-of-town visitors, a guest suite. The great thing about this is, it doesn't have to match the rest of your house, it's a great opportunity to experiment with something a little more bold or subdued.
Have kiddos? How about a tree house inside the house or a teen getaway? C'mon who didn't want their own space when they were in the adolescent years?
Need a quiet office and a space to be inspired? These are brills.
