I’m sure that big ass harp is in Deertick’s office because it was too big for the living room and whoever moved it stuck it in the first available room. The office is right off the living room. I also agree the office should be in the smallest bedroom. Izzy and Sam should be sharing the “guest” room, and the guest room could be where the office is. I guess I’m old school because ai don’t see the need for a separate play room. I grew up playing with my toys in my room, and it didn’t damage me. It also kept my parents from buying more toys than we had space for, or allow us kids to take over the house. Toys were for your room, not the living or dining room. Then again we went outside since my grandpa built us an entire park (Grandpa was awesome like that!) I don’t hold the same neurotic, aggressive attitude towards children that the Dillards do, but I think it’s ridiculous when I look at houses on HGTV and the kids have taken over with their toys.
So here are my ideas to redo Jill’s home. First, the house needs some color other than brown, tan or gray. Nice colorful throw pillows on the sofa.
Obviously clean and declutter.
Colorful placemats in the dining area.
Rearrange the bedroom configuration as stated above, get the boys some bunk beds, and a small table and chairs set.
A swing set for the backyard.
Jill really should ask Kendra for advice.
