Guess what day it is!!!? No its not Hump Day, but I was thinking...why isn't there a super awesome commercial for Friday? I mean, isn't that the whole hype about Wednesday? That its the segway into the last leg of the week before we reach the weekend? I say Friday gets its own talking animal commercial and I say the mascot be a giraffe. Sound good?!
Happy Friday loves. By now you all know of my torrid love affair with small space living. I get out right giddy over well designed humble homes and cleverly executed storage solutions, but when is "small" a little too small? Is there such a thing?
For a while now I've been captivated by the concept of the "Tiny House Movement". Its fascinating what can be done with next to no space at all. When we first started discussing the idea of downsizing I thought of all the tiny house dwellers and I just imagined, My gah, a family of 5 living comfortably in 600 sqft? I don't know, guys...how could this possibly be? Somehow people are doing it everyday and its just plain incredible. There's one lovely lady and her family, in particular, who absolutely blow my mind.
If you guys aren't aware of who Carmella is, she's nothing short of amazing. I discovered her blog long ago and have been pretty much obsessed since. Her family's story of how they came to live in their tiny cabin is inspiring and so is her beautiful home. Guys, she has 3 boys and a dog, and they make life happen in a mere 665 sqft!! She's my hero.
Amazing. That is all. I almost died when I learned her black counter tops is just chalkboard painted plywood sealed with a couple coats of wax. Freakin genius! They look like soapstone to me. And don't even get me started on the boys bedroom loft...again, genius.
How can you not imagine the possibilities with inspiration like this? This just solidifies my belief of Less House, More Home. Though I'm about 99.99% sure Naomi would never approve of a home quite this small, it's really great to see.
So tell me...could you live in a tiny house? Do you think its just plain crazy? I think I might be somewhere in the middle. Until next time loves....
