My husband is in the AF, and we will be moving this summer.  In my research into the housing we
have access to.... they are considerably bigger than what we have now.  I have plenty of furniture,
and a lot of it is big and bulky anyways... here is our place now--- > http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=395712.0
I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas for going from a smallish duplex like we have now... to
a possible 2 story, 3 bedroom HOUSE!

I told DH I may want to get more stuff to make things balanced... but I might enjoy the open space
we may have as well.  Any ideas on balancing in a bigger home with out adding a bunch of bulk to my
already eclectic home?

I would wait until you get settled in before making any decisions. We recently moved from a 950sq.ft. 2bed 1bath apartment to a 1250sq.ft. 3 bed 2 bath house and our stuff has filled it tremendously. We even have stuff at our apartment that we're donating because it wouldn't fit here! How we fit all this stuff into our apartment is beyond me.

A few ways of making "sparse" rooms feel fuller: rugs tend to ground a room and give it warmth without taking away much space. Potted plants can be a great way of brightening up a room and you could always give them away when/if you move. Big wall displays of pictures or art would make the room feel livelier.
