210 Square Feet!

Who knew that 210 square feet could pack so much into it?! The Box (designed by Ralph Erskine) lives in Sweden and fits a full size bed, kitchen area, bathroom, living room and fireplace all in it’s 210 square foot frame. Ralph originally built The Box back in 1941 and he and his family lived in it for 4 years. In 1989, the home was reconstructed and donated to an Architecture Museum in Sweden. We can all take some cues from this old design and Ralph Erskine and make the most of smaller spaces.

Loft Beds!!

Loft beds are GREAT space saver/creators so they work well in small spaces. Don’t confuse loft beds with bunk beds. Loft beds do not have beds below them like bunk beds do. For me, there is just something so private and “my own secret haven” about loft beds. They are definitely not just for kids. Love ’em.

 See it over there in the corner? LOVE it!
