Small Home 💕

Recently, I made the mistake of telling my Dad I wanted to build a small home, say 1000-1400 sq. ft. 
I intended a thoughtful reimagining of the modern home. One that was energy efficient, with no wasted square footage. A site specific design without the requisite three bedrooms, two and half baths. Tailored for one or two people with a centrally located (and well-appointed) kitchen, an open, breezy feel, easy access to outdoor space and a lush, private courtyard. Oh, and an outdoor shower 🚿
What my Father heard was that I wanted to get rid of all the things I have spent a lifetime collecting (I have an Eames chair for god’s sake) and live in a box, sardine-style. So, I get periodically get articles like the one below warding me off a hair-brained idea I never had.  
I currently live in a gorgeous, old row house. Vintage real estate is my bad boyfriend. I am so charmed by his good looks I momentarily forget how unreliable and expensive he is (but look at those cheekbones! 🙄 ).
Below are some inspirations for the next iteration of ‘the dream house’.
