In light of last week’s news (more on that here), I have some work to do in the house before Sean can officially move in. Our top priority is making sure there’s enough room for both of us to live in #mytinybungalow with all of our stuff until we’re able to do a full-on bedroom renovation (like adding a closet). The first step is a good old-fashioned closet clean-out, so I partnered with Glad to share my best tips and tricks for staying organized in a closet-less home!
I don’t know if I’ve ever divulged just how small #mytinybungalow is… it’s 640 sqft total! Yup, pretty darn small — and without a single closet to boot. I’ve had to get really clever with finding ways to sneak in extra storage, but I’ve noticed more and more that lots of furniture pieces are doing double-duty. It seems like the world is slowing coming around to the tiny house revolution! With so many amazing options out there, I wanted to share 20 of my favorite pieces with you,
I have a confession to make: despite how lovely things look on the blog and on Instagram, I sort of a hot mess behind the scenes. A good example of this (not so) dirty little secret is the fact that I have never owned matching dinnerware. Nope, not even once. I’ve always cobbled together plates and bowls that sort of… go, but aren’t part of a matching set. Then, with all of the photoshoots I do, I have lots of one-offs, plates that don’t match anything. After meeting the lovely folks at Fortessa over wine a few months ago, I reached out to them with this dilemma of mine. Thankfully, they were more than happy to send over the dinnerware of my dreams — crisp, clean whiteware in sophisticated, un-fussy silhouettes that are equally perfect for both everyday and occasion use.
It’s a BIG DAY, you guys… it’s the official unveiling of my living room + dining room makeover by the super talented Jessica McCarthy of Decorist! Throughout this entire process, I was always able to rely on Jessica to steer me in the right direction — from picking paint colors to sourcing new front door hardware to hanging art at the right height, her one-on-one design insight was exactly what I needed. I don’t even have the words to explain how absolutely blown away I am that I can call this space my home. I feel so very, very lucky.
Without further do, let’s look at the amazing photos!
For some reason, I’m really struggling with having a design plan for my bedroom. It’s a room that needs a lot of work: all new drywall, figuring out why the ceiling is a different height than the rest of the house, moving light fixtures, and installing a closet… and that’s not even my entire list! I’m hoping to tackle this room during the winter months, but in the meantime I need the space to feel way more livable and restful. The chaos of my nightstand situation is one easily identifiable reason that I feel grumpy every time I enter this room. Thankfully, Bellacor sent over these two gorgeous side tables from Uttermost that offer lots of storage and help the space feel wayyyy better. They also want to hook you up with an amazing giveaway, so keep reading…
In the grand scheme of things when doing a makeover in your home, today is the second biggest day of the entire thing! It’s Design Reveal Day — aka when I finally share with you guys the selected look for my living room + tiny, tiny dining room for the Decorist DesignOff with House of Hipsters. Keep reading to see which design plan readers like you chose and why I’m so in love with it…
I’m not sure if I’ve shared just how tiny my house is… it’s a one bedroom and measures just over 640 sqft in total! While it’s not the traditional tiny house you see on HGTV, it is pretty damn small, something that I’ve had to take into account as I make decor decisions. Going from a way bigger loft (catch the full tour of my old loft apartment here) to this small space without a single closet has been challenging. But, if there’s anything I’m truly good at, it’s finding great resources. Today I’m sharing 3 shopping resources for small space living!
