Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: Our condo is only 588 square feet, so I wanted to pack a lot of personality into a small space. I painted the kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanity, and walls to make it more us.

I fell in love with the star tile and chose the dark blue/gray cabinet color to complement it. Our shelves in our living room are filled mostly with photos that my fiancé took, which really make the space feel like home.

Above our bed are paint by numbers that we found antiquing. I based the design off these paintings and our love for where we live, Maine.
