I know EXACTLY how you feel. My last apartment (which was my first after college) was a 1000 sqft loft in San Francisco and I had more space than I knew what to do with! I had all of the same problems - because the clutter and mess isn't right on top of you inhibiting your ability to walk from one side of the room to the other you don't notice it as much as you do when you're in a smaller space!

I would read AT or see other tiny little apartments on the internets and envy them! They were so much more awesome and neat than my space. I was jealous of 200 sqft apartments!

When I made the decision to move back to NY, I knew exactly what I had to do: find a place that was JUST big enough for me to not feel claustrophobic. My place is now a nice little 1BR in a brownstone that forced me to downsize a lot of my furniture but I LOVE it! Not to mention it's gotten me out of my "put the laundry on the stairs instead of bringing it up to the loft" or "can't see the dishes so they don't bother me" rut!

I wouldn't mind living in/renovating a chouse though!
