When I chose to live in a small space, part of my decision was inspired by my desire to reduce my impact on the environment. There are so many ways to reduce waste in your home, but my most recent area of focus has been the bathroom. From my skincare routine to storage, these 5 tips have minimized the amount of waste I generate, while also making decisions that are better for the environment.

In the tiny bungalow, we’ve worked really hard over the past year to minimize our waste and our impact on the environment. That means no more plastic and certainly nothing that is disposable… so I’ve searched high and low for stylish, but functional dry goods storage containers. There are tons of options out there and I figured we’re not alone in trying to green-up our home. Even if you’re just trying to avoid using plastic in your kitchen, these storage containers are a great place to start.

If there is one element of our living room that I absolutely love, it is our arc lamp. The bungalow doesn’t have any overhead lighting in the living room, so this was the best solution to help illuminate from above. I also love how streamlined it is. With their minimal footprint, floor lamps can really work wonders in a small space. Here are some really great options in case you’re looking for one!

Is there anything more lovely than a freshly made bed? I don’t think so. Now that spring is almost here, Joanna and I have both been on major cleaning kicks — which includes refreshing things around the house. It’s time to dust those hard-to-reach corners, replace those threadbare towels and, most importantly, make sure your bed is extra chic and cozy.
For me, that means swapping out my everyday bedding with the most perfectly rumpled linen bedding. Seriously, the texture is so lightweight and dreamy. But Joanna and I are always looking to add a bit of special detail to the things we fill our homes with, so when Brother sent over one of their super-handy P-touch Embellish machines and spools of satin ribbon, we decided to add some ties to the bedding. Not only is the result super pretty, it’s also practical since we printed it with instructions for restless sleepers: your side, my side and the dogs’ side (because we can’t forget about Noodle and Lucy).

I have some really exciting news to share with you guys today: I am heading to North Carolina next month participate in the High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour! I am one of ten super-talented designers and influencers chosen to be on this trip and I can barely contain my excitement. If you’re unfamiliar with High Point Market, essentially it is the place to scope out new home decor trends. Think of it as Fashion Week, but for the home decor industry. I’m especially excited because while I was designing product for Anthro (all those years ago), I always wanted to accompany the buyers to High Point, but never got the opportunity… until now!
In celebration of her new book, Your Home Your Style: How to Find Your Look & Create Rooms You Love, I teamed up with the inimitable Donna Garlough for a really fun post today.

Lucky for us though, Donna has shared her top 5 tips for small space living today! Trust me, you guys are gonna want these tips (and they are amazing even if you don’t live in a tiny house!).
