    love it, so true, people have a crazy insatiable need for more and more stuff and space to put their stuff. I think it's all about creating the most out of the space we have, making it reflect who we are and what we like to do a home. Taking care of all that stuff takes time away from doing what we love to do.

    My biggest personal observation is that no matter how big or small someone’s house is has little to do with their ability to create a home. There is a distinct energy in a home well loved, honored, appreciated and cared for. A sacredness of attention to details that money can’t buy but heart and imagination create.

    I agree there is a lot of useless wasted space. After superstorm Sandy, when we had to rebuild 8 feet up, the kitchen, dining area, living room/den was one large room-900 sq.ft. And that included small side areas of pantry, 1/2 bath, washer and dryer! Everything you need to live luxuriously!

    This is very much an opinion piece. And I very much share the opinion.

    I like to think that we’re on the verge of a major paradigm shift where waste and extravagance are ostracized and thrifty efficiency (think: tiny homes!) are celebrated. Ostentatious homes make people uncomfortable. Smaller spaces bring down guards and bring people together.
