What I Love About My Small Home:
Since the space is so small we don't have room for things we don't need. We're very selective about what comes into our home and because of this we finally have a space that we feel defines us.

Some of the pieces in the room were my grandfather's, and I am honored that I get to use the same pieces that he used for over fifty years. We've personalized the space with our own photography and maps we've collected of places that are special to us.

It's a space that we can relax in and not feel closed in, despite the apartment's small size.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
Our apartment is very cookie cutter, and is identical to the other seven units in our building. We used the big area rug to cover up the floor tiles we weren't crazy about and used personal pieces to make the space feel our own. We've given our apartment a personality, and it now looks nothing like the other units in the building!
