LOCATION: Long Beach, CA

WHY MY SMALL KITCHEN IS COOL: It's bright and happy, and everything I need is within reach. It's also good for portion control because if I gain weight I will no longer be able to fit into my "one fanny" kitchen.

Weekend Meditation: On Counting What is Precious

2011_07_24-beans.jpgIn famine, the number of dried beans in the cupboard; in abundance, piles of chicken bones and empty wine bottles.

Anisa’s Warm, Welcoming Kitchen Small Cool Kitchens 2011

2011_07_04-Small-Cool-V5_100x100.gifNAME: Anisa
LOCATION: Madison, WI
SIZE: 103 square feet
WHY MY SMALL KITCHEN IS COOL: This may sound nutty, but it feels like this is the kitchen this house was always supposed to have. We tried hard not to over-modernize, but to instead stay true to the rest of the space. It's warm and welcoming and looks much bigger than it is.

Jenniffer’s Small Yet Luxurious Kitchen Small Cool Kitchens 2011

2011_07_04-Small-Cool-V5_100x100.gifNAME: Jenniffer
LOCATION: New York, NY
SIZE: 100 square feet
WHY MY SMALL KITCHEN IS COOL: What makes our kitchen so cool is that we were able to install all the luxuries we needed in our small space (one wall to be exact). For example, we were able to install a space maker dishwasher underneath the sink and also a 22 inch microwave (specifically made for RV's) over our 24 inch stove. We love the clean lines and simplicity of our kitchen while still looking very hip and modern.
