In our many years of marriage, we have owned 9 houses... but this is our first condo! We own a big house on Cape Cod which we consider our home but we bought this condo in the Boston suburbs for our off-Cape life, with easy access to my job, friends, family, airport, shopping etc! Having fun decorating it and appreciating the ease of maintaining a small space!

Powder Room.  Had a small pedestal sink when we bought the condo, but soon realized when decorating "small spaces" you need storage space wherever you can get it!  Had vanity installed within the first month!  Vanity and mirror from Lowes.  Paint:  Benjamin Moore, HC 165 Boothbay Gray.
