I love this concept of living intentionally, literally within your means. True quality over quantity. Exactly what you need, everything with a purpose & function. What I especially love is how mindful & connected its creators are to the process & the space. That really embodies the concept of home to me.

"Early in their marriage, Lily Copenagle and Jamie Kennel began crafting a plan for living, scribbling house designs and lists of must-haves on notepads and paper napkins.
The idea was simple. They would create a home that was big enough for the two of them, but small enough so that it would be easy to maintain, environmentally responsible and inexpensive to operate. And that would allow them to free up their time and funds for intellectual and recreational pursuits. Own less, live more.”
