It is a known fact that I am obsessed with Rejuvenation lighting. During our bedroom makeover, I had the opportunity to meet with the team in Portland and tour the factory where they hand-make and finish many of the gorgeous pieces you see in their stores. As I become a more conscious shopper, I love adding pieces to my home that are made in America and feature heirloom-level quality and materials. Rejuvenation checks off those boxes for me, while also bringing a classic, yet modern design aesthetic to any space — even a small space! After perusing Rejuvenation’s Online Lighting Guide, I felt inspired and wanted to share which lighting would work best for a small space with you.
I remember this moment so well: I had officially closed on #mytinybungalow and, with keys in hand, went to check out my new home again. I walked through the front door and it hit me just how tiny the house was! Even as a renter, my loft had more square footage than my ‘new’ house. In that moment, it felt so daunting. Now that I’ve been in the space for over 2 years, I feel like I have this whole small space thing on lock! Throughout my small space journey, I’ve learned loads of tricks to make the space feel bigger and I wanted to share them with you.
I’m the type of hostess who always keeps many bottles of wine on hand. I hate to be caught unprepared, so instead I tend to go a bit overboard with the wine hoarding. You all know our bungalow is pretty tiny, so I’ve had to get creative with how we store the extra wine — especially because it’s best for wine bottles to lay on their sides. And, until we can renovate the kitchen, we’ve had to rely on some store-bought storage pieces to help keep the bottles tidy. I know I can’t possibly be the only one out there who’s wanted wine storage that is both chic and functional, so I wanted to share some of what I found while researching options for our space!
Living in #mytinybungalow, I get asked A LOT about how on Earth we ever have guests stay with us. And you know we have them because my bestest friends live in totally different cities! We tend to get lots of house guests because people love to visit Seattle (ahem, only in the summer)… and because I always insist that people stay with us. What can I say, I’m proud of owning my own house! But anyways, everyone is always curious about how to make it work space-wise, so today I’m here to answer this question.
There are a few key things you want to make sure you do to host guests in a small space:
It is so good to be home!!! After being in Italy for the past few weeks, I am happy to be home and reunited with our tiny zoo. I absolutely love to travel, but I am always ready to come home now that I own a house. There’s something about it that just feels so… right. I miss the tiny bungalow while we’re away! I never thought I’d ever feel that. After landing yesterday, I felt so inspired to snap some photos of my home and share my favorite corners of our home.
Recently I went on a purging and tidying rampage and at the core of my frustration was our lack of shoe storage. For some reason, I find shoes incredibly annoying to store. I could count of the reasons why for hours, but I’ll spare you. Mostly, I just hate how much space they take up and how shoes can get smashed and misshapen if they are stored incorrectly. After my rampage, I fell down the rabbit hole of shoe storage and found some really good options that are worth sharing with you guys. And, of course, I only want stylish shoe storage, so the aesthetic of each has been taken into consideration! Let’s get started, shall we?
