Clever Decorating and Storage Ideas for the Bedroom

July 29, 2015 4:02 pm

Between trying on clothes every morning to tossing and turning in the covers every night, the place that should be your sleep sanctuary can start to look a bit more lived-in than you’d like. Here are some smart tips for decorating and storing your essentials in your bedroom.

  • Add a wall-mounted nightstand. Maximize the square footage in your bedroom by installing a wall-mounted nightstand. You could even use a shelf with an attached drawer.
  • Mount a cabinet above the bed. To really free up floor space, consider forgoing a traditional headboard in favor of a flat, hanging cabinet mounted just above the bed.
  • Add light curtains. While many people prefer light-blocking curtains in the bedroom, these can make a room feel smaller. Choose light, gauzy options in a neutral color to bring more openness to the room — and help you spring out of bed in the morning!
  • Add an under-bed “dresser.” Buy a bed with built-in storage, or slide lidded storage containers under your bed. Either is a good option for storing out-of-season clothing, blankets, and other bulky items.
  • Add a desk at the foot of the bed. Create a bedroom workspace by investing in a skinny desk facing the end of the bed. It can also double as a vanity.

The Habit Burger Grill: Not Your Typical Fast Food

July 22, 2015 4:39 pm

When the first Habit Burger Grill debuted in 1969, it wasn't quite the same as the chain that now spans California today. That original Habit Burger in Santa Barbara sold burgers for 24 cents apiece, for one thing, and its owners weren't super concerned with the quality of the food. The employees were, though. One of its staff members saw an opportunity in the business and, along with his brother, took out a loan from his mother so that he could purchase Habit Burger Grill and take over.

New ownership made all the difference at Habit Burger Grill. As a result of the brothers' hard work, today the location in Dublin (and every sister eatery) uses locally baked buns, fresh beef, and California-grown produce for each and every charburger. Order the classic with mayo, tomato, lettuce, pickle, and caramelized onions, all stuffed inside of a toasted bun. Or opt for the Santa-Barbara-style double charburger with avocado and cheese on grilled sourdough bread. For the full Habit Burger experience, add a malt or a milkshake to the mix.
