I consider myself to be incredibly lucky right now because Sean is still considered an essential worker and therefore going to work every day. That means I generally have the house all to myself… all 640 square feet of it! One question I’m asked a lot though is how each of us gets alone time in a small space. I’m guessing this gets asked a lot for a few reasons: our bedroom door is a barn door, so it doesn’t close all the way like a traditional door. Or maybe because I don’t have an office where I can hideaway. Even though we live in such a small home, we’ve been able to put into practice a few things that helps each of us prioritize alone time.Continue reading “How We Prioritize Alone Time In a Small Space”
Wow, it has been a hot minute since I shared a Small Space Squad home tour. But today’s is a real beauty. This charmingly minimal studio is home to Lori Dail, aka lady.dail on Instagram. I absolutely love it! I can almost feel the salty sea air coming through the big windows. Plus, wait until you see more of that bed nook — I love how it feels like a separate space, even without a full wall. Let’s take a tour!Continue reading “Small Space Squad Home Tour: Lori Dail”
We have a lot of animals in our 640 square foot home… 2 dogs, 1 cats, and 6 baby chickens (currently). At any given time, I will be dog sitting or have a chicken inside the house after a bath. It can be mayhem! But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I read recently that people are adopting pets more and more these days and it really made me happy. But in case you’re staying home and struggling to have a pet in a small space, I wanted to share a few tips that have helped us across the years!Continue reading “5 Tips for Having Pets in a Small Space”
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”
