Coolest Small House Contest

The 7th Annual Coolest Small House Contest is happening over at Apartment Therapy.  There are four finalist, and all of them have clever clever small living features.  I had a hard time choosing my favorite.  

Julie's A Frame
For me this home has amazing curb appeal.  Doesn't it look like something out of a fairy tale?  Love the color of the door and those great house numbers.

Nicole's Old World Style Home
My favorite feature here - an "eat in" area which is most often missing in a small space.  I love how it's placed in an area to serve double duty for eating or playing games/cards in the main living space.  And yes, that IS a wagon wheel coffee table - very hard to make something like this look good - but she pulled it off.

Jordan's Light, Location Vibe
Favorite feature in Jordan's home is the dedicated office space.  
This is a rare thing in a home of 460 square feet. 

Michael's Mini Manhattan Home
Love the main living space of this home.  The focal wall of brick adds tons of character.  He took the brick wall and made it feel like he has a fireplace.  Such a great idea for apartments created in older buildings with a shared brick wall.

Also, the gallery wall creates a chic casual feel.  Notice how he has hung the artwork all the way to the ceiling, really accenting the high ceiling in this space. 

I wish I could take the best of all three and create one amazing small space.  If you would like to see all the details and vote for your favorite, go to: 
Have a most wonderful end of the week! M.

  1. I know Apartment Therapy is having The Coolest Small House Contest but I didn't have time to check out all the entries. It is down to the finalists already? Julie's home sure have an amazing curb appeal, from the architectural shape of that roof, the large windows, the color combinations and the inviting outdoor dining area all nestled in the woods? I don't mind moving there in a heartbeat!

    Have a lovely weekend, Mandi!
