Living in a Small Space with a Family
CityBaby Living isn’t just a theory in my life, I am living it. While we live on the edge of Boston, not the heart of it, we have four people living in 1,200 square feet. While for some this is a luxury, it is certainly a far cry from spacious and demands creative solutions and design choices.
Living in a small space with a family is something that my husband and I have consciously chosen. Are there days that we look at each other and wish we had a bit more room? Yes. Do I wish for a big back yard for my kids to run freely in? Yes. Do I feel jealous of friends who have converted basements and attics called Kid Land? Yes. But I wouldn’t choose to change my lifestyle. We have everything we need, and nothing that we don’t.
My CityBabies section is about my life – my family, my everyday choices, my design solutions and even, my struggles. So welcome!
