What I Love About My Home

It faces the street - our last apartment was dark, this one gets lots of light.

Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home

What is still the biggest challenge - the kitchen and bathroom are impossible.

Baby must be tiny. In a month or two you'll have to clear off that room divider.

I like the wall hung Lack and might just use that idea myself!

I really like to see people with kid(s) in small apartments. I wish AT would show more of these types of homes.

Love this. The shelving in the bedroom works so well, for such a tiny space, you've pulled it all together in a way that does not seem cluttered although you've got lots in there, but still has a serene feeling to it.

The living room is wonderful! Just gels so well...kudo's to you for great decor and layout!!

The place has a great feel and calming energy. (I'd love to see a pic of your kitchen!)

You are a master at hanging art. I love every grouping, and each is so different from the others. Great space!

I'll have to pass this on to my roommates, who share a bedroom with their toddler.
Also - love that you put a bird on the door. I was wondering what the "put a bird on it!" post would be today.

Am I really the only one thinking that it looks very dark inside, even though it supposedly gets a lot of light? Were the pictures taken in the evening? Otherwise it looks very nice.

Very beautiful place.
Nice to see a family in a small space, I hope some others will follow (I'm living in a appartment of 90m2 with 2 kids myself).
I like the way you divided your room. I hope you can fix the shelves, so that you can keep it when the little one starts climbing.

I like it, but would've enjoyed seeing photos of the "impossible" bathroom and kitchen, too.

Love the color you painted the living room-mind sharing what shade you used?

Thank you for your comments! The wall color is white water from benjamin moore. The coffee table is the Eames Elliptical and the dining table is the tulip.
