When we moved in together, I brought two dogs and two cats and he brought bikes, surfboards, and so many plants. It is a small space filled with a lot of life, but through the use of color and light, we've transformed it into a real home. The house has an awkward floor plan (bathroom off the kitchen?) and was plain, white and boxy but our kind landlords let us paint to add a little character. With a bit of creative storage, a growing capacity for editing, and our shared imaginations, our home now feels like a real nest.
Your favorite element:
Lighting - there is absolutely nothing that can affect the mood and quality of your space more - best place to spend your design money.
