Everyone has a wish list for their dream home filled with “must-have” items. In this series, I’ll fill you in on my own “must-have” items – and hopefully show you that in some cases they’re more attainable than you think! - Gabrielle, Savvy Home

This is going to sound a little absurd, but people are often at a loss when it comes to decorating large sized bedrooms. This often results in lots of empty space. Not all bedrooms are large enough to accommodate two full-sized chest of drawers as bedside tables, so if you’re among a few of the lucky ones that can indulge in this luxury, I urge you to try it.

First of all, think of all the storage possibilities. It also looks very chic and holds its weight: much better than a dresser lost on a wall too big for it. It leaves space in the room for other things: a bench at the foot of the bed or even better a small sitting area or chaise lounge. Are you convinced?

Hang a Lantern

I love a good lantern. For an entrance hall, a large bathroom, a dressing room or a small office, the elongated shape of the classic lantern is ideal. Perfectly suited to hang above a circular pedestal table or to stand on its own in a narrow space, this timeless lighting option can really pack a punch and finish off a room. Just like any lighting, the lantern is the jewelry of a room. Make it shine!
