What I Love About My Small Home:
I love the warm, inviting feeling when I walk through the front door. Although it is a basement flat, it still feels bright, open and airy.

Most of the time it is dreary outside, but my place feels like a perfect cosy London flat. My favourite thing is to snuggle on the couch and look out at the garden, or when we get a rare bit of sunshine, open the doors and enjoy the sunlight and warm breeze.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
I share my home with my husband, our two dogs and two cats, so the biggest challenge was creating a harmonious space where all the inhabitants can co-exist happily. Because it is a lower-ground flat we are really fortunate to have the most charming little garden, which acts as an extra room (especially for the furry family members!).

My husband works from home, so another challenge was making sure he had a workspace. I had to forgo my dreams of a dining table, and instead we eat most of our meals in the kitchen. When friends come round we pull out a table that we keep stored under our couch.
