Living large in small spaces


My stylish and fabulous friends at Apartment Therapy (who have yet to meet me and decide to let me do their PR in the Netherlands but will, one day) areon their annual quest for the coolest small homes around the globe. Pretty much an American party but the contest does allow international submissions. 

If your house is 1200 square feet or less. You can submit 5 pictures and a floor plan. There are 5 categories: teeny-tiny, tiny, little, small and international.  You can bring out your votes too.

1200 square meters is a whopping 111 m2 by the way, which is another great example of the fact that everything is bigger in the US, even small apartments… 111m2 is considered pretty big for an Amsterdam pad. Mineis 140m2 and makes quite a few people green with envy.

Below a few examples of current entries.
