Ingenious Small Spaces

The Genteel Cottage October 2015 Southern Living

The Genteel Cottage
October 2015 Southern Living

This month’s issue of Traditional home’s cover promised Ingenious Small Spaces and did they deliver!

So many pictures of small houses either look completely impractical, like living in a fussy doll house or a “she shed.” Or they go to the other extreme and look like semi-glorified campers.

In the feature Southern Home – The South’s Best Design & Style Ideas titled The Art of Living Small demonstrates two designers’ ideas on how to live large in a small space.

The Genteel Cottage October 2015 Southern Living

The Genteel Cottage
October 2015 Southern Living

This is the front of the house. Very charming! The kitchen is to the left. The whole house is only 1200 square feet of floor space. This isn’t as tiny as most Tiny Houses, but is a practical size. (Actually, it’s bigger than the log cabin I live in.)

“It was very important to the owners that it was a comfortable, cozy place to be. It was hard not to make it charming too.”
Sam Blount, from Decatur, Mississippi, based in New York City

The dining area, at the top of this page uses two traditional brass wall bracket sconces instead of a chandelier. The banquette gives additional storage. It’s practical and adorable!

This is the kitchen. Enough work surfaces, storage and style! I love the small crystal lantern pendant over the sink.

The ideas that Blount recommends are:

  • Symmetry
  • Two rugs instead of one big one or a lot of little ones
  • Limited color palette
  • “Cunning” storage

Don’t you just love this kitchen?

This is from Elle Décor’s July/August 2014 issue.

Past Master

“He may be a furniture restorer to the stars, but in his own Brooklyn townhouse, Karl Kipfmueller opts for the worn and the faded

“The kitchen cabinetry and stainless steel countertops are by Galesi Design, the pendant lights are by Progress Lighting, the under counter freezer and refrigerator drawers are by Summit, and the Wolf stove is vintage; the walls are painted in Benjamin Moore Dulamel in White and the flooring is cork.”
