Having a small space doesn’t mean you have to skimp on style and the 176 square foot office designed by Amy Mitchell is a perfect example of that.

When it comes to living large in a small space I must admit that New Yorker’s do it best. The home of interior designer Meagan Camp, located in New York’s Upper West Side, is proof of that. What she lacks in space she makes up for in style. Her apartment may be a mere 300 […]

An Enchanting Creekside Estate in Montecito

I’ve had a major case of wanderlust lately and my daydreams have been all over the map. From a weekend staycation to an extended European holiday, I can’t get the thought of vacation off my mind. I’ve never used Airbnb, VBRO or any other online home rental service (have you?) but my curiosity got the best […]
