    What an unusual shape! Perhaps you could google/pinterest some inspiration.

    Afbeeldingsresultaat voor octagon roomUsing this image I found on google I would suggest decorating it as symmetrical as possible, as symmetry complements the room and doesn’t make it too busy with all the corners. You could put the bed on the wall side in front of the door, two bedside tables each side. And on the top half of the room you could put your dresser/wardrobe and on the bottom side a desk with a nice chair. But this all depends where you have your windows offcourse. So my essential tip would be keeping it symmetrical and in balance.

    I know I’m not MrKate but I hope I was of some sort of help.

    With kind regards ,

    Hi Jiya,

    I know I’m not MrKate but maybe I can help.

    Afbeeldingsresultaat voor dark wood furniture bedroom

    I googled Dark Wood Furniture Bedroom in google and this is one of the images I found. It shows that a soft light colour as this very light purpleish shade really works. White also works and even very soft blues and greens. Maybe if you google it, you’ll find some inspiration!

    And for the floorplan, maybe you can attach a little drawing of your floorplan. If it is a big space I would suggest putting an ottoman or a little soft bench there, So you can sit on it and use it when trying on shoes. But Maybe you don’t need any more furniture, as not everything has to be pushed against the wall!

    I hope I was of some help.

    Hi! I know I am not mr Kate but maybe I can help. I have a little studio myself.

    Some suggestions:

    – Invest in a big cozy area rug, for your conversation area or/and for your bedroom-part. Rugs are awesome for designating area’s and make them feel their own instead of everything being in one big room (as is the problem with a studio).

    – Hanging some art really brightens up a room, and makes it feel personal. The same goes for plants.

    – Invest in light that is not hanging from the sealing, but offers soft warm light at eye height. This really cozy’s up a room.

    – Candles!

    – You can colour part of your wall in a deep/rich colour. For example the part of the wall where your bed is or the wall in your kitchen.

    I hope my tips were of some sort of help!

    (as I have watched all of mr Kates videos on Youtube allready, another great youtube channel is House&Home, with lots of decoration inspo)

    Lots of love!

    Hi Diana!

    First I would suggest to go for a rescue dog, my family had enjoyed rescue dogs for some generations and they have never disappointed us. There are a lot of dog in the shelter who have been trained and are waiting for a new home to love.

    Puppy’s are very cute but need a lot of care and training in their first year. Even dogs go through a teen period, which is not always easy. And they have a lot, and i mean a lot, of energy.

    I don’t know how you guys live, but If you have a garden, and not a lot of stairs you can go for a bigger breed. If you live smaller and maybe also higher with a lot of stairs, a more small breed will be great. However, this is a guideline; Ive got a niece with a 64 kg dog living on the 7th floor of an appartment building, the dog just casually takes the elevator everyday ;).

    Bigger breeds that have the reputation of being easy and sweet are Golden Retrievers and Labs. Myself i love Spaniëls and Setters. They are very kind, soft and easy medium breed dogs. As for small dogs, terriërs have a lot of character and energy. Every mix breed is great when it comes to small breeds, but I would be carefull with Pugs, Cavelier King Charles Spaniels, French Buldogs and every other Fashion Dog breed. Those dogs are prone to having a lot of diseases and most of them have serious difficulty breathing :(.

    I hope I could  be of any help!

    Love from the Netherlands
