During the design process, I was really overwhelmed by the array of appliances out there. I definitely knew I wanted KitchenAid appliances in the black stainless finish for a polished, sleek look, but beyond that… I had no idea. I was also really concerned about what we could actually fit into our tiny kitchen. Now that I’m on the other side of the renovation, I’ve written up a few suggestions and tips for anyone in a similar situation. These 3 tips should help you choose appliances with ease and confidence!
Sometimes my job is really cool and I get to interview people who are incredible and inspiring… like Arielle Vey! I’ve been a long-time fan of her photography and Instagram for so long. Her blend of juicy, saturated color with warm neutrals is so dreamy! Plus, she’s a PNW girl. Instant bonus points for that. Arielle is also a small space dweller and works out of her home. When she was interested in being part of the Small Space Squad, I jumped at the chance to share her home! Let’s take a peek into Arielle’s tiny home, shall we?
I always find home tours fascinating. It’s basically like low-level voyeurism because you can peek at how people live and enjoy other decor styles without committing. While I’m always a brat about boho and how it’s not really my jam anymore, I still appreciate the aesthetic — especially when it’s well done. For example, today’s Small Space Squad feature, Sara Toufali, aka Black & Blooms! Not only is Sara just such a kind, lovely person, but her home is airy, breezy, and so cozy. It’s one bohemian space that I definitely love. Let’s take a peek into her new home, shall we?
Whenever I’m anxious and overwhelmed, I engage in a stress-cleaning spree. To me, nothing feels better than a good ole declutter sesh. It is sooo cathartic. But with the influx of Marie Kondo, no shopping challenges, and minimalism, getting organized can feel really daunting — no matter the size of your home. I wanted to share some of my best organizing tips that are approachable and actually realistic in the hopes of inspiring you. So often it can be a lot to tackle, but with these tips, I find that getting organized is a lot easier.
Typically, when I find new small space dwellers to interview for Small Space Squad, I get really, really excited. It’s not every day that you meet someone (even virtually) with the same lifestyle ethos as you! I was especially stoked when I ‘met’ Jenn Freeman from Eleven Houses. Jenn is an amazing DIY-er who is lovingly renovating a 1920s home on a budget. Oh, and she has Rebecca Atwood wallpaper in her bedroom, too! Can you see why I’d be drawn to her yet?? Let’s tour this historic, stylish small space.
One question I am often asked when I talk about small spaces is how a family can achieve it. I agree, it can be a challenge. There are so many incredible families doing it now though! Not only are they making it seem like a wonderful option, but they are doing it with style. Meet Alison of 600 Sqft and a Baby, an incredible example and our newest Small Space Squad home tour!
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!
