What I Love About My Small Home:
Nate and I were hesitant to move into a tiny apartment. He was leaving a roomy loft in North Carolina for my home base in NYC, and I had my heart set on a Lab rescue named George, whose food bin outsized the fridge. But my gut told me the 1911 townhouse with a fireplace and original floors could squeeze us in.

We fit the world in our petite retreat. Carefully curated pieces collected on our journeys pepper our apartment with memories, like the antique Berber door we lugged back from Morocco that anchors the living room.

Family keepsakes balance our far-flung finds. Nathan’s beloved grandma’s lucky horseshoe props up our drafty window. My dad’s bronze andirons add glamour to the rustic fireplace. A trunk salvaged from an estate sale acts as our coffee table and linen storage. Its shipping tags are from 1935—Elvis’s birth year!
