Location: Reno, Nevada
Size: 800 sq. ft. apartment
What is the advantage of SMALL? Small apartments are great. The limited space keeps boyfriends from moving in and running up my water bill. It also feels safer because if a stalker sneaks through my window I only have to run 10 feet to get to the closest door. Also- less space equals less vacuuming. And finally, I am addicted to buying furniture so its easier to make my apartment cozy without over spending. Yay!
What's your favorite resource for your home?
I am a poor graduate student, therefore, I like being thrifty. Someday I will be able to splurge but not at this time in my life. My style is sensible but sassy. I am addicted to TJ Maxx, The Dollar Store *yes- imagine that!*, Target, and local thrift stores. I am still hoping that someday we will get an IKEA- until then I purchase my wall art from Urban Outfitters.
What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?
I love the pink picture frames draped over the front window in my living room. This reminds me of something I would see in a kindergarten classroom. I am addicted to pictures so I always have to find new ways to display pictures when I run out of space on my side tables.
