I’ve always considered myself something of an expert in small living spaces. After all, I lived in Manhattan for five years. But the members of the small house movement have put me to shame with their 100-square foot havens.

Tough economic times are putting them in the news lately. I saw a post on Strollerderby today, and it references a recent CNN profile of two different home owners. If you check them out you’ll read a lot about how these people give up space in order to save money or even to make a political statement. The element I think they both miss is that these homes are beautiful. The architecture, both the modern and the traditional, is lovely and on such a small scale every single detail shines.

Check out this sweet bungalow. It’s a mere 250 square feet.

I love the cozy space, the rigorous organization, the elegant efficiency. Some day, admittedly after my son is grown, I could see myself happily ensconced in my own perfect 250 square feet.

If you decide to downsize, Small Space, Big Style has what you need to make it work.

    I'm not a decorator, but I think I'd use white or off-white on big furniture (sofa, chairs, bed linens) and pops of bright colors. I'd want light colors in the kitchen, too. You'd need good lighting, and some fun colorful art would be great.
