One Of The Coolest Tiny Apartment I’ve Ever Seen

So Typically I find apartments that have a neat design sense to them or have one neat trick to them; Then I found this apartment.  The design is elegant, simplistic, functional and no other way of putting it…. EPIC.

So what’s so great about this apartment?  Try a 400 square foot apartment that has a master bedroom AND a guest bedroom for two, can seat 12 at a dining table and so much more. Here are some photos and then a video at the end.

Cube Home For 3

So just a little bit ago I spoke about how many people are turning to having everything put into a central cube of sorts, with the bed on top.  Here is another one that does just that.  The really awesome thing I like about this is the underfloor storage that doesn’t have handles but instead uses a suction cup handle to lift it open.  This leaves a much cleaner look without the need for handles.

Clever Space Saving Ideas For Small Spaces

The great thing about Pinterest is all the really neat things you find on there, the not so great is you emerge several hours later feeling like only a few minutes have passed.  I found these during my browsing and thought I’d share with you all.  I have created a Pinterest Board here.  Show me your awesome Tiny House and Small Space Pinterest Boards by sharing a link in the comments section!

Tony and Hilary’s Tiny Loft Apartment

I have been seeing quite a few of these pod style designs in small spaces, today we have Tony and Hilary’s Tiny Loft featuring this central cube that houses most of their storage and then has the bed on top.  This seems to be a great approach for places that have tall ceilings, but small foot prints.  I really like the curtain that can be drawn around the bed for added privacy or for those days you just don’t want to make your bed, AKA everyday for me.  This apartment is 460 square feet and houses two people and one four legged friend.

Embracing Symbols Of Happiness

When I attend Jay’s workshop a few weeks ago I gained an interesting insight from one of many discussions.  It was the concept of how many of us embrace symbols of happiness and that often we do not realize that the things we have actually represent happiness, but don’t bring it.

Take for example a photo of a white sands beach, an island paradise.  We see many people have these types of photos pinned inside dreary cubical or as our computer desktop.  What is this really?  Why are we compelled to hang such a photo in our homes, work, etc?  Subconsciously these are symbols of happiness, but they, themselves don’t bring happiness.  If anything they are reminders of something that is lacking in our lives.

It is an interesting perspective when we evaluate our personal belongings aka stuff, often which we have way too much of.  Here is a video where Jay talks a little about it.
