What I Love About My Small Home:
I love the ever changing look of my home! When I want to change my color scheme, I start with reupholstering my dining room chairs. Things snowball from there. I love antiques, but I also like the beach cottage look. I have tried very hard to incorporate both into my home. It has not been an easy feat, and it is an ongoing project. My style did not come from one trip to a furniture store. I enjoy the process and the evolution, as much as I enjoy the result.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
As most people who live in small spaces will tell you, the number one challenge is finding creative storage solutions. I have tried just about everything I can think of. I have bins stuffed under my beds and all my nooks and crannies are being utilized. I also found that in the laundry room, hanging things on the walls was a good way to store unused artwork. Another good solution was for me to simply declutter my home....it works wonders.
