My little eScape

October 8, 2017

Welcome to my new home in London in the new academic year. It may sound to you crazy, but I actually enjoy living in a small space. Yes, there are both challenges and restrictions with it, but I always look at small places with embrace. Maybe that is because I grew up in a fairly small bedroom and I always enjoyed organizing and arranging my objects and things, not just so they can fit but to also look aesthetic.

So when I saw the studio that Scape offered me, I knew it was the perfect place for me. Here are a couple of reasons why I like small places and I hope with this reason I will change the mind of those who always complain they don’t have enough room.

Добредојдовте во мојот нов дом во Лондон во новата академска година. Можеби ќе ви звучи лудо, но јас во суштина уживам да живеам во мал простор. Да, со тоа доаѓаат и предизвици и ограничувања, но јас секогаш на малите простори гледам со ентузијазам. Можеби тоа доаѓа од фактот што израснав во релативно мала детска соба и секогаш уживав во организирање и уредување на моите предмети и нешта, не само да ги собере во мал простор туку и да изгледа се со висока естетика.

Затоа кога го погледнав студиото кое ми го понуди Scape знаев дека ова е совршено место за мене. Еве неколку причини зошто ги обожувам малите простори и се надевам дека со овие објаснувања ќе фрлам ново светло за оние кои постојано се жалат дека им е тесно.

  1. Yes it is a challenge, it is truly a challenge to fit everything you need in a miniature space, everything to have its own place, nothing to be overloaded and still to make sure that the functionality and aesthetics of the space are followed. Small living spaces make you innovative and makes you think of functional solutions so that everything looks tidy and practical.

    Предизвик е Да, навистина е предизвик да сместите се што ви треба во минијатурен простор, се да има свое место, ништо да не е претрупано и да биде запазена функционалната и естетската страна на просторот. Малиот простор за живеење ве прави иновативен и размислувате за функционални решенија кои ја конципираат сложувалката се да изгледа уредно и практично.

  2. Good habits are born. You realize you can live with less things, you make A list of all the important and necessary things and B list of all the unnecessary and you basically keep all the necessary things at home. This is a habit that many dream of.

    Се раѓаат добро навики. Вие заклучувате дека можете да живеете со малку нешта, правите А листа на неопходни и Б листа на непотребни работи и практично ги задржување дамо нештата што навистина се потреба. Тоа е навика за која многумина сонуваат.

  3. You become realistic. You stop buying unnecessary things and give away all that you don’t need. You simply realize you are happier with less.

    Станувате реалистични. Престанувате да купувате непотребни нешта и подарувате се што не ви треба неопходно . Едноставно сфаќате дека сте среќни со малку.

  4. You become minimalistic. It is hard to be minimalistic today in a materialistic world, where people are obsessed with shopping. That is why I am happy that small space teaches you of this habit. You become selective and you control what you buy.

    Станувате минималист. Тоа е тешко да се биде во денешниот материјален свет кога луѓето буквално се зависни од шопинг. Затоа сум среќна што малиот простор ве учи на оваа навика. Стануваш селективен и многу контролирано купуваш нешта.

  5. You become a creative person. Creative with little, aesthetic with refined sense for quality instead of quantity. You only put a few details, the rest you can save, and put them up later so you can give a refreshed look.

    Стануваш креативна личност. Креативен со малку, естета со рафинирано чувство за квалитет наместо квантитет. Поставуваш само неколку детали, другите може да ги зачуваш, па да ги извадиш по одредено време и замениш и веќе имаш нов свеж изглед .

  6. You are perfectly organized. If you make a mess, it only takes you a couple of minutes to tidy up. But in reality in a small space is hard to make a mess.

    Совршено си организиран. Ако направиш неред, ти требаат многу малку минути за да средиш. Но, реално во мал простор тешко се создава неред.

  7. It is easy to clean. There is no need for a lot of explaining about this one, in just a couple of minutes this studio is perfectly clean. Which means you have more time for yourself and your interests including all the facilities this building offers for it’s residence such as gym, cinema, common room and all the other things you need for a complete student life.

    Лесно се чисти. И тука нема потреба од многу објаснување, во само неколку минути ова мало студио е совршено чисто. Сето тоа значи дека имам многу повеќе време за себе и своите интереси вклучително и комплетната понуда која овој комплекс ја има за своите станари, а тоа е фитнес, кино, соба за игри и дружење и други детали кои го прават цело она што е потребно за современ живот на еден студент

    You have set up your little corner in your world beautifully ! I agree with all the facts you state in living in a smaller space. Most important would be not to collect junk, which we all have a habit of doing. May you continue being a minimalist in this materialistic world

    Oh my gosh it is so super cute! I especially love the tiles over your sink. You certainly have the knack for decorating as well and I’m with you: a smaller space is much easier to clean! 🙂

    This is an awesome place! I agree that having less is having more! I need to work on minimizing the amount of stuff we have in our house. A family of 4 collects a LOT of stuff over time!

      It’s hard to minimize the amount of stuff when you live in a bigger household xx

    What a great post! I agree about everything except that its more organized! No matter how small or big I am alwas disorganized! But less place you have less stuff you will need for sure!

    Space and London is not something that usually appears in the same sentence! However, you’ve managed to create a pretty cozy place, even if it’s not very big!

    Hey you have done a superb job with your space. I agree that when you have limited space you don’t end up buying too many unnecessary stuff.

  • Beola Lawal October 10, 2017 at 9:26 pm

    Wow, so cute and beautiful. I love small spaces too, and I agree with all your points. Less is better and its easier to clean too.

    That’s cool that you found a great place you can use the space to your advantage. I could definitely use some more minimalistic ideas in my life and have less. I need that. I think that would help my daughter as well.

  • Shreya October 12, 2017 at 11:59 am

    That is one cool studio, I would love a place for myself kind of a DEN. Less is always better plus the building itself has so many amenities, overall looks like a great package.
