I love working green into everything I do, both as a color and as a lifestyle. Living in our small home puts limits on our things, motivates our green endeavors, encourages minimalism and exercises our creativity.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space:
Challenge #1: Carving out space for family living (work, play, entertaining) for a family of four in a 2-bedroom space. We overcame that by getting fresh perspective on layout, storing clothes in closets instead of dressers to make room for workspace, hanging a shelf behind the sofa to eliminate the need for a coffee or end tables, mounting the TV on the wall with shelf and storage ottomans underneath to make room for seating and hide toys away when not being plaid with. Challenge #2: being content with what we have. We do that by decluttering. We are forever editing our belongings, learning the art of refusing and remembering how much we have to be grateful for.
