Tips for Living in Smaller Spaces

Living in a studio or small apartment can feel cramped, but let these tips help!

I had to throw away a lot of my belongings when moving across the country–and then on top of that–I downsized from a two bedroom to a studio apartment. I have loved living with less (trying to be a minimalist instead of a hoarder ;)) but I sometimes feel limited in creativity when working with such a small space. I found these articles inspiring and encouraging. I want to tackle our new loft/studio with a new determination to make the space look bigger, feel homier, and show our creativity.

From my studio to yours,
