Stylish living in 700 square feet
A design-savvy couple figures out how to live (happily!) in a tiny San Diego bungalow
But the prospect of tight living quarters didn’t keep Lauren and Eric Wendlandt from buying this 1911 bungalow in San Diego. Nor did the never-updated kitchen and bathroom, which both needed major work; Lauren, an architect, and Eric, a designer, were game.
“It was like a bride and a wedding dress,” Lauren says. “We knew we wanted it.”
This dining room table can extend (into the living room) to seat 10 people. The pendant light can be lowered for meals.
In the living room, the window seat stores extra blankets, and the subwoofer (at the far end of the couch) doubles as a side table.
Make your bed: The room will instantly look less cluttered.
