- What I Love About My Small Home:
- The light is outstanding for a ground floor rental. I have big windows facing both east and west so I get lots of sun throughout the day. Plus, for its size, this place has a ton of storage, so finding a home for things has never been a problem. Also, it was just a real pleasure to decorate an apartment exactly to my tastes for the first time in my life. The combination of industrial and vintage items just makes me feel good.
- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
- Finding ways to deflect or minimize the less-than-ideal elements of my very outdated rental. The ‘70s kitchen linoleum, the wall-to-wall carpet, and the drab pinch-pleat curtains are all things I would not have chosen on my own, so troubleshooting solutions on my very meager budget has been a constantly-evolving process. But truth be told, it’s kind of fun too.
