Today kicks off a little series I'd like to call Studio Living. You, see... I've also been drawn to the idea of living in a teeny-tiny studio apartment. Now hold in your gasp of horror at the thought of dwelling in such a small face. And let me proceed to tell you why:
First, I reeeeally want to live alone. I've had my batches of not-so-good roomies. And actually, the roommates I'm living with right now are the best I've ever had. But I really want my own place. The independent spirit and private artist in me simply desire carving out a special little corner in the world all to myself. A kitchen, bath, and living space to call my own. And while I'd move into a well-priced one-bedroom in a heartbeat... efficiency apartments are easier on this college budget.
Second, I don't require that much space. Well, my furniture might. (But that's a whole 'nother blog post!) Blame it on Apartment Therapy's annual Small Cool Contest or whatever, but I find the challenge of decorating and organizing a small space oh-so-appealing. It sounds like fun. I like to get crafty and creative. Decorating a separate living and bedroom would just be too easy. ;)
So here's where the Studio Living series comes in. I'm actively searching for my next apartment and really hoping to find myself in an efficiency this fall. So I'm going to be scouring the internet for nifty small space ideas and real, inspiring studios to share with you. Cheers to tiny living!
