Entries in decorating (118)
I've been on the search for small space solutions. We decided on a studio sublease for our transition to New York and now begins the task of downsizing our household. Though living in a teeny-tiny space will not be forever, the idea of "living with less" has sparked an interest. From time to time it catches up with me the amount of things we live with and find necessary to keep around. The hub and I both come from families with homes with basements packed to brim with things, closets that become overflowing, and the constant need to clean out and reorganize. I'm not saying it's in any way wrong to live that way, but we've got to figure out a way to break the mold if the two us are going to remain sane in our studio apartment with a pup.
Last night I stumbled across this home on AT. Laura Cattano is a professional organizer and as I was wandering around her website, this stuck out to me, she writes "I help my clients to move from consuming unconsciously to consciously; to break the cycle of over-consumption and unhappiness; to living for and with what you truly love and need. This approach is not only better for your space and for you spiritually, it's better for your wallet and even the planet."
Simple right? I'm curious if any if you have thoughts on the topic or even resources for living in teeny tiny apartments :)
Although this isn't exactly my decorating style (and the hub would never go for pink walls), I love the idea of having furniture lifted by casters. Not just for the ease of cleaning but for the ease of rearranging...so many possibilities without heavy lifting.
