I really love articles featuring home owners who have made a personal stamp on their interiors by mixing the lowest end flea market finds with the highest end "to the trade" items. A glimpse into these interiors and you get a feeling you know who these people are. Now if that interior happens to be a small space, as mine is, the article will be poured over again and again for inspiration.
So I was quite excited to see this section in the March issue of a magazine:
When exactly did 2,500 square feet become a small space? Nearly 4 of my condo could fit in a space that, dare I say, large. I must say the space was beautifully decorated and filled with the homeowners' character which I loved. I can also appreciate the need to downsize. However, I find the shifting definition of what is small a bit alarming.
Editors, please bring back the small spaces in your features. I'm even willing to compromise and call it anything less than 1,500 square feet. I have a love for all interior design work as evidenced by my insatiable magazine appetite. However, what I miss are the occasional articles featuring these small space design masters. They are truly inspirational.
