I’m super-stoked for today’s Small Space Squad home tour, you guys. I’ve not-so-secretly obsessed over this beautifully renovated home of Sarah Jacobson, aka The Grand Apartment, for a loooong time. The thing is that I am really fascinated by her home because it was a total gut job… and all in New York City. The idea of renovating anything in such a large city gives me a bit of agita, but when you see the results… holy cow. Sarah’s home is truly gorgeous and I cannot wait to show you more of it!

How to Decorate with Large Indoor Plants in a Small Space

How to Decorate with Large Indoor Plants in a Small Space. #plants #houseplants #lowlightplants #indoorgardening #smallspaces #tipsandtricks #tinyhome #decoratingwithplants

Houseplants of any size are definitely a decorating must-have in my book. Not only do they help circulate and clean the air, but it’s always nice to have something alive in your home. There are tons of options for small space-friendly houseplants, but it seems like size is always an issue. We have quite a few large indoor plants in our tiny bungalow, which means I’m often asked for tips on incorporating them into homes. I know it can feel daunting to bring a giant tree into your space, but these styling hacks will help you hoard plants with confidence!

8 Storage Tools I Can’t Live Without

8 Must-Have Storage Tools, No Matter the Size of Your Home #smallspaces #organization #homerefresh #storage #storageideas #organizationideas #tidyingup #mariekondo #konmari

I think what’s especially funny about this whole ‘living small’ thing is that I haven’t always been the most organized. It wasn’t until I moved into my loft and actually felt like I had more of a home (even as a renter), that I realized I had to get organized. Now that my actual home is even smaller than the loft I rented, we have to stay tidy and organized. There are a few storage tools that I’ve come to rely on… in fact, I’d probably be a hot mess without these!
