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!
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.
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!
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:
Happy Monday! I always love kicking off a fresh week with a Small Space Squad tour because it’s the perfect real life inspiration to jumpstart my week. Today I’m happy to feature the curated home of Karst Rauhé, an urban planner based in Amsterdam. I love that every inch of this space is carefully considered and designed to maximize livability… while also being super-cool. Plus, I am always excited to share more international homes! Let’s take a peek inside Karst’s studio.
Here on the blog, I have shared tons of small space tips, home tours, and inspiration for choosing to live small. Each time I post something, I am asked what my definition of ‘small space living’ actually is… especially after I received pushback for featuring homes measuring over 1000 sqft for my Small Space Squad series. Every time I am asked, I struggle to share a truly defined description. I thought it was time to kick off the conversation around this topic and share the results of an Instagram poll I conducted this week. Let’s open up the dialog and see if we can find a definition that works for all of us! Grab your coffee and maybe a snack cuz this is a long one…
When I first found Sarah Wissinger on Instagram, I was immediately excited to see her home because it’s in Pittsburgh! I have a deep attachment to that city because I went to college there. The architecture and homes are so unique (keep reading and you’ll see why), so I knew Sarah’s house would be a wonderful small space squad tour!
