Square Feet:
What I Love About My Small Home:
After a couple of temporary places, this is the first apartment my boyfriend and I can really call home together. A smaller footprint means we can afford my favorite part of Boston with parking for both of our cars. Even though the rooms are small, we've been told our place is great for hanging out and watching sports or movies, or relaxing over drinks in the kitchen. The second bedroom means my boyfriend's young son gets his own room when he comes over on weekends.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space:
As renters, we cannot change ANYTHING! No painting, no holes in the walls, we couldn't even attach a toilet paper holder in the bathroom. Plus we each wanted to incorporate the furniture we already owned. So each room ended up with its own vibe. The bedroom feels cozy and warm and romantic. The bathroom has white marble floors, and I bought bamboo accessories to give a spa-like feel. I added colorful accessories in the hallway and living room to brighten up all the black and grey. And in nice weather there's nowhere I'd rather be than relaxing on the porch with something hot from the grill and a cold beverage.
