  1. Um hi, I'm going to comment like, 5 mins after you post. Creepy? NO!

    So, 300 sq feet makes me want to throw up b/c that's so tiny. I'm so sorry.

    But you're doing amazing things and it makes me want to purge my house of all clutter.

    And may I correct you on the label "drawer" you use in the kitchen? THAT'S NOT EVEN A FULL-SIZED DRAWER!! It's like, a mini-drawer. A baby drawer. A drawer-that-has-not-yet-reached-puberty.

    I'm so sorry for the size of that drawer.

  2. But you have a dishwasher!!! I'd trade 300 of my square feet for that!

  3. that little coat, i die!

    i also realize how i jaded i am in that i saw your kitchen and went "wow - that's kind of nice!" sad, very sad. and i have the same utensil drawer - i went to BB&B to get a holder for forks/knives/spoons that sits on my counter. so i feel ya on that one.

  4. You are doing fabulous things with your 300 feet! That drawer in your kitchen is so eensy its more of a draw...doesn't even qualify for the "er" at the end. Seriously though, it looks really great and you're right, having a backyard like that and a chewy baby totally makes up for having a small apartment :)

  6. I will no longer complain about my 1200 square foot bungalow of love that houses me, my husband, and two children, and a bunch of crap.

    And that stove reminds me of the stove I had when I was a newlywed in Provo. Couldn't even fit a dang frozen pizza in that thing.

  7. I have that same diaper bag! Petunia Pickle Bottom rocks!

  8. Love it. My opinion, if you want it, is to move the dresser and tv into the bedroom and get the kitchen table. Little Huck will be eating real food kinda soon, and you can get one of those space saving high chairs that strap onto one of the table's chairs,(because high chairs suck, they're huge). That will be really nice to have the table to eat together as a family.=)

  9. Oh, I am aching for you on the inside. I need space. We recently moved into our brand spanking new 2700+ square foot home and I wish so badly I could send you some of my extra space! On the plus side, I really do believe you could have a career in decorating! :)

  10. I would move the drawers into the bedroom and go for a table too!

  11. I Love the green-tiled bathroom!
    That little baby tongue sticking out and the arms so wide make a wonderful picture.
    Move the stuff, get the table, Huck can play underneath it.

    You wanna laugh my kitchen is even smaller than yours. Eight inches of counter space. And the one six-inch-wide drawer

    I have 400 square feet, though.

  15. Wow. I'm stumped. 300sq ft. Since you moved to NY, I've often found myself sitting in my living room trying to imagine how small your apartment is. (Our house is 1000sq ft.) I've even discussed it with my husband. But seeing these pictures puts it in a new perspective for me. And all I can say now is... look on the bright side. When you finally move, a house as small as mine (considering it's a whole house rather than an apartment) will seem GINORMOUS! :)

  16. How cool is that green bathroom? Seriously, that totally rocks. In regards to the size of your apartment - be thankful, the apartment could have been only 275 square feet!

  17. Loving the Bijou Market Tote sighting on the coat wall.

  18. Congrats on being featured on ohdeedoh! That's really cool. And thank you for making me feel a bit better about my 400 sq ft palace in the Bronx. My wife and I painted our door frames. It adds a nice pop of color to new york's famous white walled apartments.

  19. About the space underneath you coat hooks---I read this on a local blog. A piece of furniture like this would fit nicely...

  20. Love that teensy little coat hanging up there! Something that might work for your coat nook might be this: http://www.westelm.com/products/rustic-acacia-console-f997/?pkey=ccoffee-side-tables .... Just 10" deep!

    When we were looking for something similarly narrow for our also tiny living room/front door/hallway when we saw this. Ended up going with a luxuriously deep 13" West Elm unit instead (my house is a mansion at 900sq. ft!), but I still think this one is pretty.

    By the way - first time poster here, and I must tell you how much I enjoy your blog! Hilarious posts and super cute baby - what else does one need in a blog!

  21. I have that zebra! And holy eff I miss that backyard. Miss it everyday. Be careful what you wish for. We have an adorable house in the suburbs and some days I miss the city so much I want to cry!!

    P.S. Those cheeks... I can't!

  22. I see that you have the Bloom Alma crib. How old is your little one and do you think you will be able to use the crib for a while? I'm contemplating getting this crib so that it will fit in our closet but I want a crib that our son wont grow out of too fast.

  23. as i was reading this my 3 year old came up and said, "mom, what's that? a kitchen? like our kitchen?" yep, yep it is:) so don't push a sofa in front of it. it might confuse the 3 year olds, lol.

  24. You post the BEST pictures of Huck!

  25. your sweet baby huck is so fat and adorable, it is seriously killing me.

  26. Ahhh, small houses. Our second married apartment (first was at Wymount--we don't speak of those months) was around 300 square feet, and our "kitchen" was in the hallway between our living room and bedroom. There was no dining area, and our bathroom was so tiny you couldn't open the door if someone was peeing unless they sat sideways on the potty. I truly could NOT imagine raising a baby in that apartment!!! But, honestly, our lives were so much simpler then. I'm totally a minimalist--I love NOTHING more than a big fat trip to DI with my trunk packed with giveaways. Sadly, my husband is a just-in-caser who keeps everything for that mystical day when we might need it. He doesn't know that during my last trip to DI, I smuggled out several text books of his he'll never crack open again, as well as sundry other items he'll never miss. Bwa ha ha.

  27. there are only two things that i can think about while i read this...
    1) i will NEVER again complain about the loss of my craft space to house a small body while she sleeps so she will not play with her younger sister instead of sleep.
    2) if we lived there, where would my dear husband go to fart so i can't smell it?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Holy moly, that is small. But fabulous! You go girl.

  29. I own the same sofa for the same reason and it sits in the middle of my 500 sq foot bedroom/living-room/office/dining-room.

  30. bijou shout out! love it.

    Just FYI -- the Utby works great with an infant. Mine crawls and plays a lot under there! Takes a couple days for them to learn how to climb over the foot rest, but its no biggie now.

  33. i'd make it work for that backyard too!

  34. A cheapy suggestion for your 11" deep wall - billy bookcases from Ikea. They are 11" deep. You can get them just as bookshelves or with doors. We have a one bedroom in NYC and did a whole wall of them - they give you a ton of space!

  35. Congrats! :-) I love your backyard.

  36. i hear ya'. my in-laws come to visit us and they are appalled at our tiny space. i'm basically like.... "suck it, we live in nyc, and central park is my backyard."

  37. Hey! We have the same couch! And we have round ottomans instead of a coffee table as well. Grey couch makes lots of appearances on my blog because it's where we are a lot of the time. Haha. Here is one grey couch heavy post if you are interested in seeing your couches twin.
