The butcher block and shelves are both from Ikea. The shelf in white was a back order item for a long time and we lucked out and found it during one Chicago trip!

Thank you! It's actually the original iron tub from when the house was built in the 1940's, we've just had it reglazed. I think the arch over the tub and the curved curtain rod just give the illusion that it's smaller.

Thank you! We worked with a local store here in St. Louis called Philips Furniture to design a custom couch to fit our small space.

The only paint color I can remember is the very light grey blue in the living room which is called Pensive Sky which is by either Valspar or Bher. I will update you if I find out the others! :)

Thank you! We love living here and having a small space is worth it for such a great area.

Thanks for the nice comments!! Our place has been such a labor of love. The bedroom rug was actually found on Zulily, but the brand is Loloi Rugs and it was actually from their kids line and the style is Blue Sky Piper. The rug in our son's room was found on Gilt.com and is by Nuloom.

I will be donating 90% of the profits on my etsy shop (cristinrae.etsy.com) to www.growinghopeforhaiti.org.

The crafting community is doing such a great job!

Those darn mice! We had one the other night that climmed a broomstick up to the top shelf of our "open pantry"and knocked over a bottle of syrup loudly onto the floor. My husband darted out of bed and proceed to yell "who's there?" only to turn on the light in the kitchen and see the mouse sitting on the broom handle staring him straight in the face!

The idea of living in a community is not an old one, it's been going on for centuries and just makes sense! If you want to live a sustainable lifestyle while helping others, it's perfect as well! A great community in Philadelphia called "The Simple Way" is the perfect example of this!
