- What I Love About My Small Home:
- I love all the natural light and windows throughout my place. It always seems sunny, cheerful, and uplifting. I also love the hardwood floors and the large living room. It feels airy yet cozy at the same time. The location is great, too...I'm walking distance from the Santa Monica farmer's market so I treat myself to fresh flowers every weekend. And lastly, I love that most of my furniture and decorations came from local flea markets and thrift stores. It is really satisfying to find an amazing deal on a great vintage piece. It's addicting!
- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
- My biggest challenge is having a closet the size of a pea! I've made it work by filling practically an entire wall with an Ikea wardrobe. The other challenge is fitting all my stuff into a tiny space. I love antiques, tchochkes, art, fabrics, and furniture! I've only got so much floor and wall space, so I ask myself if I absolutely love something. If the answer is yes, I'll find a special place for it. Sometimes that means something else has to go. I try to surround myself with meaningful pieces but not let it get too cluttered.
