My boyfriend turned me on to the insightful and resourceful author, Sarah Susanka, who has penned the series, The Not So Big House. Her inspiration came from "a growing awareness that new houses were getting bigger and bigger but with little redeeming design merit. The problem is that comfort has almost nothing to do with how big a space is. It is attained, rather, by tailoring our houses to fit the way we really live, and to the scale and proportions of our human form."

I love her perspective - living healthy for you is what makes sense! Make your house your home and enjoy!

I completely agree. I've always thought that I'm not a "big house" person. I actually prefer small spaces that provide design challenges so I can make it my own.

If I wanted a big house, I'd have to move to the suburbs and buy a cookie cutter house. No thanks! I'll stick with my 550 sq ft condo in the city.
