Tiny crush

I'm absolutely adoring this tiny home. It's Beth's home in Sausalito and won the Teeny-Tiny division of the Apartment Therapy Small, Cool 2010 contest. Did you see it? Thee where some really pretty homes. I must admit that there isn't one thing I don't like of this home. It's warm, cozy, decorated with spotless taste and style. The exterior is incredibly charming, don't you think? I love all the flowers and plants, the patio is an oasis of relaxation and the perfect place to enjoy an ice tea in the summer. Black and turquoise walls (which doesn't make the space feel smaller), pops of great colors, a red Eames chair, ikat green cushions. Perfection. 
My lovely Ashlina also posted about it a couple of days ago, so I know it's a fave among many of us :) BTW, vote for Ashlina's patio here
it's number 9!!!

  26. I have the Kartell Bourgie Lamp like Beth does. Let me tell you, I highly recommend it! It's one of my favorite pieces. It seems to go perfectly here!

    Also, I love this blog. I am about to move from the states to Oxford- so I especially am excited about keeping up.

    And finally, I am doing a giveaway with a necklace from Beth of Hello, Splendor. You have to enter. It's gorgeous!! www.aspiringkennedy.com

  30. I just love a teensy tiny space. Reminds me of my slumber party tent making days of yore. So COZY! Though this is much chic-er than anything I concocted as a child!

  36. Such a darling, darling home. It goes to show that you can do so much with a small space & it really forces you to edit & display what's important to you. I especially love the little yard- so sweet.
