  1. I love this house! So stylish, and warm, and cozy. As you said, “a cottage, boho and farmhouse vibe,.” She has done the mix really well.

  2. Thank you
    Brenda you are always present the best for us. Anxiously wait each day to spend time with you your mesmerizing words and the wonderful way you share as if we were together outside enjoying
    Your Beautiful flowers talking and enjoying tea.
    Little CharlieBoy and Ivy Would be spoiled by me before I had to leave our pleasant visit.
    You always make a special time for me to enjoy my time reading your blog. You spend many hours working to make me and all your followers enjoy a wonderful day. You make a gloomy day a sunny day. You make the world a better place and you shine bright?????. ????

  3. I love this series on small homes, too, Brenda. This post, though, left me feeling like I wanted to see more of the actual rooms instead of mostly the smaller shots of vignettes and small areas. I feel llike I don’t have a real sense of how the homes furnishings are arranged. That said, I still enjoyed seeing Emily’s style and her choice of objects for decorating.

    Thanks for posting another chapter on Living Large in Small Spaces.

    Hope your back and foot are better today. Also, I forgot to mention yesterday what a cutie Charlie was in his “sunglasses”. A charming, dapper fellow. Pats for him and Ivy, too.

  4. Brenda, I am really enjoying this topic. Each home is so cute it’s hard to pick a favorite. I am taking ideas from each home. I like the idea of adding square footage as a question. I’m in a 700 sq ft apartment. I also always wonder if they did all the decorating themselves or if they had a decorator help them. I have no creativity when it comes to decorating, but would love to have a home as beautiful as these. Sandra

  5. This home has a “grown-up” feel about it. Casual but classy. I like it a lot. The plants and baskets along with some blue and green touches are all nice ways to add a bit of nature to the mostly white and black decor. It seems like a home where the men of the family would feel comfortable. I love that fountain. I’ve been thinking of getting a little fountain because one of our cats would be fascinated with it. But, he’d probably get water everywhere. So, maybe not. Thanks for another great small home.

  6. What a wonderful cottage! The exterior of the cottage is so pretty and quaint and the landscaping looks beautiful. Love Emily’s decor and sense of styling. The shutters in the bedroom are such a neat idea. And her kitchen although small (like mine) looks to have so much storage and useful space (unlike mine). Love that she has a double oven in that small kitchen. I will be using some of Emily’s ideas in my own home. I will also be visiting her blog.

    Thank you Brenda for this series. I have told you before but I’ll tell you once more — I am really enjoying this series.

    Have a wonderful Friday afternoon.

  7. I think posting the square footage of these small houses would help. I think someone else mentioned this last week.

  8. The outside of the home is picture perfect cottage. One does not need a ton of space in order to live large 🙂
