Have you heard of the tiny house phenomenon? This lil pad was featured in Life magazine in the late 60's--but of course that decor aesthetic appeals to a lot of people at the moment (myself included). Tiny houses have seen a resurgence as they are touted as environmentally friendly and, of course, a lot cheaper than your standard house. Could you live in such small digs? I am not sure the whole minimalism thing is for me, unfortunately. But it is interesting to think about.
