What is the advantage of SMALL? For the price that I could afford I can live within walking distance to downtown and in the cool LOHI neighborhood. Less impact on the environment! I don't really need/want more stuff. I like to have things neat and organized and they have to be in a small space.


What's your favorite resource for your home?

Apartment Therapy, Kris's color stripes blog, Pantone colors, Sunset magazine, and IKEA.

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?

First, let me say that I started my project in September with a complete demolition. I was hoping to be finished sooner. Included are some photos of what I have done so far.

One that you cannot see - Soundproofing. I used GreenGlue on an additional sheet of drywall between myself and my noisy neighbor. I also hung a full wall of double thick curtains on the street side wall. Much improved!

One that you can see - the massize French doors that go from the kitchen to the backyard. Use your imagination to see the deck just outside the back door where I will be spending the entire spring and summer!
