A 495 Square Foot Studio Loft Reveal

KATE DWELL IN STYLE PORTFOLIO 495 STUDIO LOFT 01

You know what, I would love to live in a loft! But it can cost a fortune to buy AND decorate a loft. I don’t care there isn’t a ton of space (gimme that double height windows!). We can’t create more space here so it’s only right that we focus on making it awesome. I designed this 495 sq. ft. urban studio loft for a couple who wants the loft style living.

Igloo Cat Litter Box Review

IGLOO CAT LITTER BOX REVIEW KATE DWELL IN STYLE

Our (little) furball has been using this Igloo Cat Litter Box for weeks now, sure I mean he is the one using it but I think a review from the human who scoops his litter thrice a day might be more fitting. My kitten has a funny relationship with his litter box (more on this soon).

Our Kitchen Reno Before & After

OUR KITCHEN RENO BEFORE AND AFTER KATE DWELL IN STYLE

You guys already know I would have done a lot more with our semi-open galley kitchen if we actually plan to stay longer but we always knew we’re gonna up-size later. Having a cut-out L-shaped wall means I don’t have to decide the finishing for the back of the cabinets—are they gonna be glossy white like the doors? Waterfall edge countertop (more costly)? Open shelving? Cabinets on legs for an even airier look? These options are enough to drive me crazy.

An Awful Case Of Buyer’s Remorse

an-awful-case-of-buyers-remorse-kate-dwell-in-style

The first question is—have you ever experienced a buyer’s remorse? Then the second question is—have you ever felt disgusted or dirty from buying something?? Now before you think I’m exaggerating things, nope I’m not. It’s hard to admit at first, I struggled to acknowledge it (to say it out; to put it in words). It’s that feeling when you are disappointed with yourself…
