Shona B's office/playroom after! Amazing job and lovely room. I want to work there.

Already 50 comments for week 6 at East Village Amy's Week 6 thread (thanks Amy!).

Hey, that's amazing. A surprising number of you do a considerable amount of work from home - see survey. Perhaps that's why your taking so much care of it now. Good for you.

Meanwhile, you are in the home stretch now and you should watch out for slipped (like me). It's easy for life to intrude and I know how bad it can be. This is a good time of year to WANT to fix up your home, but with the holidays coming, there's a lot to do. I say work hard and rest after. This is your moment to do this work and it will pass. Go for it.

This Week's Assignment:

In the deep treatment the overall theme is peacefulness. As you clean out your bathroom(s), I want you to get to a point where you are able to put some calming luxury back into them. If you don't have them already, there are some purchases to be made here that can change your bathroom experience.

In the One Room Remedy take a good look at the lighting in your home. I find that most homes are underlit and that most that seem drab or uninspired could be turned around simply by addressing the lighting alone. Get adventurous! Lighting can be very affordable and different kinds of lights will really make your home leap to life. Oh, and there's some painting to do this week for some. Enjoy our small tutorial on how to paint a room. It's basic, but we find that it always helps to remember it when we're painting a room.
