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!
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!
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…
To me, the best part of sharing Small Space Squad home tours is celebrating different, non-traditional ways of living. The meaning of ‘home’ varies so widely from person to person. It can mean living on the go in a van, rehabbing a Skoolie, or pouring love into a 110 year old tiny bungalow. Even when you remove the aesthetic of the home from the equation, the type of space a person calls ‘home’ can be so telling about their priorities and goals. I’ve long been enamored with the idea of living in an RV on a plot of land, just like Ashley Carpenter of Joyfully Growing. To me, it feels like the ultimate dream because there is just so much room for possibility.
Honestly, I cannot get enough of these Small Space Squad home tours! Not only does it scratch my voyeurism itch (does anyone else love seeing how other people live??), but it’s provided so much inspiration for our own home. Case in point, the super-stylish 1 bedroom apartment of Crystal Ann Interiors. Also, if you’re looking for some Murphy bed inspiration, this home tour is perfect for you!
When I first thought about buying My Tiny Bungalow, I immediately thought of Katrina Blair and her charming rancher. I followed her small space living adventures for a while and was so inspired by how she’d made her home work for her family — especially with some incredible DIY hacks! So today, I am really excited to share a peek inside the home of Katrina Blair. It’s packed with saturated color, tons of storage ideas, and so many ideas.
