loving eating small
go vertical and horizontal

I am sure many of you small space dwellers have reinvented the "dining room" by way of your coffee table. In my apartment, I actually have a dining room (I know, right?! A small space dweller's dream) That being said, I personally knew that I wouldn't use my dining room as, well, a dining room. I am not super formal and, at this point in my life, I need a dedicated home office so the 120 square feet of  became just that.

I prefer to entertain in my main room when I have friends over. We sit around the coffee table and enjoy. Since the surface is a bit small, I have to be creative by either going vertical with a tiered stand or horizontal by sharing plates or trays. I use my cutting boards for all different types of food and the rack to stack plates as well. How do you make space in your small space?

Same here! And putting everything on one plate means less washing up afterwords too :)

Okay, first off I have to say I LOVE your home office! I desperately am in need of one and I totally adore yours, it is so inspiring. I paint (and blog) quite a bit as and I am in desperate need of a work space. Currently, I have a tiny woodfloored flat in Venice Beach, I have a large low table with rattan floor cushions... we gather on the floor at my place, I like to think of it as free spirited bohemian living, but really I just havent been able to spring for a sofa since the move. Here's to living well in tiny places. I love your blog.
