Living Large In Little Houses: Debbie’s Condo

Debbie, who blogs at Debbiedoos, has agreed to show us their condo this week.

This was how it looked when she and her husband first saw it.

They’ve been doing a lot of thrifting and have given this condo a bohemian look.

The kitchen is small, the typical condo kitchen.

I love the big window above the sink.

The master bedroom has a total boho vibe.

As does the guest bedroom. And the colorful rug is very pretty.

Now let’s see what Debbie says about her condo:

1. How long have you lived in your small space home?

Almost one year

2. Did you actively seek small space living and why? Price? Downsizing?

Yes, when we became empty nester’s. We don’t need the extra space and bedrooms. At least for now until grands come along. The condo is 1100 sq. feet, two bedrooms, two baths.

3. Which room has proven to be most problematic for you?

The master bathroom

4. Do you have a pantry and/or linen closet?

We do have a small pantry, and linen closet in the master bedroom

5. Where do you store small appliances and things like ironing boards, etc?

When we upgraded the kitchen, we made one big extra cabinet to store our kitchen appliances. I don’t own an ironing board, downy wrinkle release it is

6. Where do you store seasonal/holiday decor?

I have small totes I can stack in the guest room closet

7. What do you like best about living in a small space?

Everything! It is easy to clean, it’s cozy and we simply enjoy it

8. What do you find most challenging about living in a small home?

My husband is a big guy, I do see time to time us bumping into each other.

9. What projects are you wanting to start but haven’t tackled yet?

We would like to redo the bathrooms

10. What made you fall in love with this house?

The location and proximity to the city of Charleston. It was all about location for us.



  1. When I get back to Mn. this summer I am going to show you pics of my great small space. A bit over 900 sq. ft and very cute! Love this series.

  2. I love this series. Debbie’s condo seems filled with light and love. What a pleasant way to decorate an empty nest.

  3. It’s a very pleasant and refreshing home. The decor seems both whimsical and sophisticated, somehow! My favorite decor item is the artwork over the sofa in the living room, of the row houses. It looks like a fun salute to Charleston architecture. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you Lynx. If you can believe it, that piece we found at a local thrift shop in a totally different city. I though hmmm, that looks like Charleston to me. For 10.00 in the cart it went. Thanks for your kind comments.

  4. Oh Brenda I use to follow Debbie’s blog and then I think she stopped blogging and went to IG. At least that is what I thought. I loved her decor and following her when she lived in her home. What a great way to downsize being empty nester’s. I agree with her it is location too that makes tiny living the best. I love her BoHo design. Love this Friday series.

    1. Thanks Kris, I’ve been around but not on IG. I went to the cooking side. Slowly come into back around as I miss all my fun thrifty decorating and crafting friends.

  5. Love the condo. Looks like the rooms in this condo receive plenty of light and that is always a plus for me. I love spending time alone in my home but do love the idea of being able to open the blinds and let the light flood in. Love the pantry door and the color of her kitchen cabinets (and the sink hardware). The gold hardware looks really nice on these cabinets — adds a bit of glamour!

    The new flooring looks fantastic and the trim color on the crown molding in the living area is a great color.

    I smiled when I saw the rug in the guest bedroom; I have one just like it in my dining area. Looks like Debbie likes lots of color, textures and layering (so do I) and she has done such a good job with it.

    Love this post; this series is one of my favorites! Thanks to you and to Debbie for allowing us to visit.

    1. Thank you so much. Always need some color in my life. It just makes me happy. Thanks for your kind comment.

  6. Thanks for having us over Brenda! As I sit here at the condo this morning sipping coffee and looking at a palm tree! The little things. Xo

    1. I knew I recognized that condo and then saw it was you…DebbieDoo…I love the style you’ve done on the condo…actually, I love your blog & following you on Facebook…..and your Foodi group❤️
