My workspace has been very unsettled ever since last September. I opted to move out of my studio space in order to save money, a decision for which I am so grateful today. After that, I tried to work out of our tiny bungalow, but it proved to be unhealthy in terms of stopping working at the end of the day. We had also just finished making over the living room and just… didn’t want my small space home office to be here! So we moved it 3 blocks north to Sean’s dad’s house. Now that there’s a freaking pandemic, I made the decision again to move my desk back into our 640 sqft home so that both Andy and I can avoid potentially infecting each other. I’ve shared a bit about this on Instagram, but have gotten lots of questions over the past week. So I wanted to share a mini tour of my current home office in case you’re also suddenly working out of your small space!Continue reading “My (Temporary) Small Space Home Office”
It feels like I blinked and suddenly it’s March and springtime… which means my birthday is next week! To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to style a spring tablescape that could work for so many different spring events (like Easter or Mother’s Day). The inspiration was all of the tiny, happy flowers that are popping up more and more these days. Isn’t spring just the best??Continue reading “How to Style a Simple Spring Tablescape”
It was a tough transition to move from my old loft to my tiny bungalow for a few reasons. One of the most outstanding was going from having tons and tons of wall space to hang art… to barely any wall space at all! Our bungalow has a good number of windows, which I’m not mad at by any means. Let in that light! But it does make hanging art more of a challenge. In case you’re in the same situation, I wanted to share some tips today about how to display art in a small space. Hopefully these tips help you to make a home gallery with confidence!Continue reading “4 Ways to Display Art in a Small Space”

I am SO excited to share our bedroom refresh today! Ever since we did a full renovation on our tiny bedroom, I’ve known that we needed a storage bed. But at the time, I didn’t love any of the options. We are also very limited with the amount of space around the bed, so anything with drawers was not a viable option. It felt like we’d never be able to find a storage bed… until I discovered the Lid Storage Bed from Blu Dot. Now all of my storage dreams have come true!Continue reading “A Bedroom Refresh + Our New Storage Bed”
You know those homes that simply stop you in your tracks? That’s how I feel about the home of Kristina Rasmussen, aka Scandinavian Stylist. I pretty much adore everything about this small space: from the clean and crisp color palette to the natural touches sprinkled throughout. I mean, have you ever seen such sexy branches?? And don’t even get me started on the soaking tub… Kristina’s home is the ultimate in well-styled minimalism that’s also oh-so-cozy.Continue reading “Small Space Squad Home Tour: Kristina Rasmussen”
I cannot believe it, but I am still under the weather from this nasty cold! Because I’ve spent so much time cooped up in our tiny bungalow, I felt like it was a good opportunity to share more details of how we live. Today is really specific: it’s all about how our small kitchen is organized. I took a quick video showing what’s inside each cabinet, how we use our storage, and a few of the storage tools I can’t live without!Continue reading “Tour Our Kitchen + 5 Small Kitchen Organization Tips (video)”
A few months ago (!!!), my good friend Claire Gould, aka GetClairefied, came over to teach us how to organize a small closet. Thanks to the rush of the holidays, I didn’t get a chance to edit the photos and video until now… and I am so excited for you to see this! In case you missed my post about the closet from a few years ago, my house didn’t have a SINGLE closet in it when I bought it. While renovating the bedroom, we used the Elfa system from The Container Store (which is 30% off currently!) to turn an entire wall into a closet for Sean and I to share. We’ve lived with the closest for about 3 years now and it’s been amazing. Ever on the quest to live with less, Sean and I worked with Claire to pull everything out, prioritize, and re-assess our storage habits! Here’s what happened:Continue reading “Closet Tour + How to Organize a Small Closet with GetClairefied (video)”
