This post has been 10 months in the making and I’m SO EXCITED that it’s finally here… it’s reveal day for our kitchen renovation!! As you may remember, our kitchen used to be dark, dingy, and very, very sad. But now? It is bright, fresh, and oh-so-inviting. Sarah from Room For Tuesday designed the most perfect space ever for us — seriously, I am totally wow-ed. I’m beyond obsessed with our kitchen remodel, so let’s dig into all of the details. Get a coffee and a snack… this is a long post!
One of the most striking, stop-me-in-my-tracks tiny homes I’ve seen during my Instagram searches is that of Bela Fishbeyn. I originally discovered her through the Domino Design Awards a couple years ago and now she’s one of my favorite small space accounts to follow! Bela and her beautiful family share a gorgeously crafted tiny home that is big on style — plus, she’s one of the wisest, most thoughtful people I’ve come across online. I hope you enjoy this home tour as much as I do!
Our patio that we made over for One Room Challenge last year is still such an awesome space. We literally use it every day in the spring, summer, and fall. Here’s the thing though: our tiny bungalow is on a corner and one of the streets is a main thoroughfare. Because of this, we get a lottt of street noise. We added a fountain to help drown it out, but lately I’ve been thinking of adding something else: a set of modern wind chimes! As usual, I did my deep dive online and found tons of great sources that I wanted to share with you in case you’re on the search, too.
Today’s small space tour is an exciting one because Alexandra Collins (aka Alexandra Studios) is practically a neighbor of mine! I think she just might be my first Seattle feature for this series… anyways, I’m always drawn to Alexandra’s home and style. It’s clear to me that she spent time growing up abroad because her home has a curated, European vibe. Everything in it is carefully considered and thoughtful — and amazing small space inspiration!

Let’s be real here for a sec: selecting a shade of white paint for our house is one of the most stressful decisions I’ve made! We have white upper cabinets in the kitchen, so I wanted to get it right. In my opinion, nothing is worse than shades of a color that don’t match. I’m totally the person who will wear all black, but be grumpy that my shades of black aren’t the same. I know, I know… so delicate. Anyways, let’s dig into some tips I’ve learned from Sherwin-Williams about how to choose white paint!
Honestly, one of my favorite features on Instagram is the question box. Not only does it help me know what type of content you’re interested in seeing here on the blog (and about my social media school), it also helps me to share even more about my day to day life! And, you know me, I’m an open book. Recently, I asked you to submit questions about decor, social media, and our relationship… so here are the answers!
Thanks to the magic of Instagram, I’ve been able to connect with more and more amazing people who have chosen to live small. One of my personal faves is Melanie Gnau of A Small Life. Not only is Melanie such a genuine, lovely person, but her charming home is vibrant and full of color! Win win. I’m also totally blown away by the number of years she spent living small in an Airstream. Let’s step inside her charming home and take a peek around…
