When I was in Atlanta I looked at a couple of apartments for people age 62 and older. One woman who showed me around refused to believe that I was over 62, but I am, and as I have chronic pain I want to live in a small space and not have worries. I also want to live near my daughters and grandchildren because that is where I am happiest.
The apartment that I like has a waiting list and it will be a year before I can get in, but I plan to use that year to plan my move. I will be saving and downsizing as much as possible. The apartment is 550 square feet. Pretty small, but large enough for my needs, and it will be mine, so I can decorate it the way that I want.
With that in mind I will be doing a series on small spaces. Today's apartment is half the size of the one I am looking at. I don't think I could go this small, but it has some great ideas. This was found on redbook.com. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
So many beautiful ideas. The one thing this apartment has that I won't have is a gorgeous outdoor space.
Maybe I can find a neighborhood garden to join. That sounds like fun.
