They have my stove (I know that sounds odd but swear it is the same one), and…. my vintage (was mine) Fisher Price schoolhouse… the hallway and doors look like the house I was brought home to as a baby in the 70s. I feel at home already :).

Sometimes I toggle back and forth between photos trying to figure out how the house fits together. In this tour, it was refreshingly obvious!

I’m so envious of the clutter-free environment. Clutter creates stress for me, which isn’t great when my two housemates are clutterbugs! That said, it’s relatively easy for me to straighten up the “public” living spaces. My challenge is my 6th grade daughter’s room.

Gabrielle, any good tips on helping a pre-teen/teen organize his/her space? How to balance her desire to see everything (“so I don’t forget it”) with having a room that’s actually manageable? Maybe there’s a post here?

Your space sounds like a lot of fun (ps–we hide the extra clutter in the unfinished basement :) )

Plus we have the same sofa! Sweet! We share a lot of the same philosophy. I have a 1 year old and we play with one thing at a time. We also live in a small home and decorate it mid-century vintage. So, it lends itself to an uncluttered feel. Although, she definitely has me beat on the lack of clutter!! Now, I feel like purging some stuff!! Thanks for the inspiration! : )

It turned out to be a brilliant move in our small space. I love seeing other people who’ve done the open cabinets!

Oh, and your wood floors are beautiful.

Its easier to clean this way and the kids have more room to lay out their train tracks :)
