What I Love About My Small Home:
It is absolutely a reflection of things that I love: curated goods, decadence, comfort, elegance, notes of France, the cool of New York, the intrigue of travel, personality, character and a nod to history.

For me, my goal was to be able to walk to work, have friends in for cocktails, live in an invigorating neighborhood with interest within steps of my door and minimize expenses.

I'm an advocate for living small! I have found that it predominately supplies all of my needs. And the Schnoodle? Well, he loves it most of all. It's just his size.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
The first challenge is being a renter for the first time in a decade. I try to make affordable (and reversible) changes that allow me to live with an environment of which I am proud to call home. In this space, the low ceilings at 7' were a big challenge. But rather than feel the "shortcomings" of a shallow space, I embraced the heights. Sconces vs Chandelier. Artwork at a variety of heights. Elongated horizontals to offset the obvious verticals. Abundance vs Minimalism.
