Ever since I purchased my home last summer I've been relentless searching for just the right faux taxidermy-like pair of wall hangings for either side of a big antique mirror that sits atop my fireplace mantle. I really want something quirky and unusual, and I need a pair. I'm still kicking myself for losing an ebay auction months ago for two vintage white ceramic rhino heads. In a perfect world, I would just commission artist Shauna Richardson to create a wonderful set of her crochetdermy creatures. Yep, that's right-crochet.

Hey you city-dwellers, you'll surely appreciate the design blog loving. living. small.
The idea is to encourage living with style in small spaces under 1,000 sf. As the proud owner of a petite bungalow in a city, I know first hand how valuable space is. Sometimes I wish there was just a few hundred more square feet or an extra room, but for the most part, I truly do love living small. The things you acquire cannot just be things any longer. They have to be functional, important, or really, really cool.
I also believe (commence preaching) that living with less is better for everyone. What if we all moved into existing homes instead of building bigger, newer ones? What if we needed less to furnish and fill these houses? What if we used less to heat and light them? Less blight, less stuff, less waste of precious energy.
Ok, I'm done. Pretty Pictures.

Street style blogs are a-plenty in the webiverse. I like Au coin de ma rue's spin on things. Each subject displays objects they carry on themselves or feel represent them at this point in their lives and explain why. In an uber-hip and interesting way, of course.
