It's actually quite amazing how effectively she used such a tight space. There isn't much room for traditional entertaining or a TV, but I love the warm and welcoming feel of the kitchen and making the most of the counter/island space.

- What I Love About My Small Home
- My home is everything I love: a fluffy bed, a bathtub, many windows, even more books, and a bar. I tore down two walls to fit everything in. I love coming home and seeing all of my books up on my built in bookcase, my olive green closet doors, all of the natural light pouring in my windows, and a sleek wooden bar inviting me to sit and draw (preferably with a glass of whiskey within arm’s reach). I’m a middle school teacher here in DC, as well as a local artist. I read in bed, create lesson plans in my study nook, and draw botanical prints on my bar. From academics to the arts, every space serves a purpose, and I love every inch of my teeny-tiny home.
- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
- My biggest challenge is having a pet. Winston, my fat cat, takes up 2 constantly moving square feet of my floor plan. I love him, but find myself rearranging my aesthetics to accommodate his sheer mass. I’m learning to be more flexible while he’s not learning to be more graceful.
