What I Love About My Small Home:

I really love how charming our building is — it has elements of a storybook cottage with its scalloped white trim, trailing vines, and bay windows. Also, we’re extremely spoiled to live in the city where we can walk to cafes and shops, but also have a private enclosed yard. With two dogs and two kids, that last one seems really necessary. Outdoor space and great weather do a lot for making a home seem bigger! (далее…)

What I Love About My Small Home:

I love the warm light, coziness, and tiny sliver of ocean that you can see from our beach bungalow. The house feels spacious despite its size, and it forces me to rein in my «collecting» tendencies and be thoughtful and selective about the objects/clothing/art that fill the space. We bought very few new things when we moved in — most of the items are thrift store finds or hand-me-downs from family.

We gut renovated the kitchen and bathroom and knocked down a wall — it makes it feel so much more spacious and bright. We did a lot of the work ourselves, and I love that all of the idiosyncrasies and imperfections are «ours.» The house was a labor of love, and it’s become a haven for us in the city. (далее…)

Not so mellow yellow

An easy way to add some drama to your home is with colour. Yellow is the happiest colour of all so why not paint your kitchen chairs/stairs/buffet yellow, or tile your bathroom yellow, or have your entire staircase fabricated in yellow…

10 Beautifully Mismatched Kitchens, in Order of Increasing Moxie

Matching is all well and good, until it becomes repetitive, overdone and monotonous. Then it’s good to mix things up to make things interesting, combining styles, finishes, materials and shapes that are different but harmonious. It’s easier said than done, especially with kitchen renovations, your home’s highest-risk investment. All those choices and purchases are enough to freak out even the most stalwart of designers, let alone everyday humans on a tight budget with a small margin for error. Think you have the guts?

Katy & Todd’s Musical Mash-Up — House Tour

Name: Katy Goodman and Todd Wisenbaker
Location: Silver Lake, Los Angeles, California
Size: 700 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years; rented

So having 15 guitars may not sound minimal, but I’m convinced indie rockers Katy Goodman and Todd Wisenbaker of the band La Sera are nailing efficient living. With minimalist sensibilities (Katy owns one pair of pants), the two have incorporated their impressive instrument collection into a charming design scheme that is perfect for their 700 square foot apartment. It’s a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, and nowhere near as cheesy as this sentence. (далее…)

What I Love About My Small Home:

My favorite part about my apartment is that one of the walls is made up entirely of windows. It makes it feel open, airy, and twice as big. Every once in awhile I wish I had a bigger space, and then I remember that it takes less than 10 minutes to vacuum the whole place and about 1 minute to wipe down the kitchen countertops. Small space=less to clean. (далее…)
