small space inspiration {going vertical}

This Cape Town loft is only 59 square meters, which I can't convert to feet off the top of my head (at least not on a Friday) but none the less it is small! They really used the space well by adding a mezzanine level for the bedroom and a sitting area.

The use of open shelves and the ladders eliminates the space that closed cabinets and sraures would take up.

Lastly, the bathroom is quite brilliant as does not have a traditional shower or bath but rather just a showerhead coming from the ceiling and a floor and wall of tile to make the entire room waterproof.

The floors! they're bricks of wood. I can just imagine the floor after 100 years of traffic - softly curved and worn.

If I converted correctly, that's about 630sq.ft., which isn't all that small!! In NY that would be a palace!! My apartment is 480sq.ft. and it has plenty of room without going vertical. Nonetheless, this is a lovely apartment.

That is absolutely beautiful and ridiculously amazing. But I think it would take an adjustment to strip down and shower in the room like that. I know you'd be alone, but I'd still feel so.. revealed. Still, awesome!

I lived in Greece for a few years and many bathrooms are done with the showerhead like that. I Love it!

It's beautiful! Great use of space. That's how most showers are done in S Africa and commonwealth countries.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

My brother lived in Cape Town for two years. Gorgeous city. He ran into his surgeon (completed an emergency appendectomy)and this place looks like a palace in comparison to his.

Love this! There's something that satisfies my kid self about living in a loft... maybe somehow relates to my love of fort building and the thrilling idea of owning a bunk bed?
