“Small rooms and dwellings set the mind on the right path, large ones cause it to go astray,” so said Leonardo da Vinci. The smallest apartment allowable by law in San Francisco is 160 square feet. Take a tour. Frankly, the design seems like it’s still got a ways to go, and I’ve seen more impressive tiny apartments in Taipei. But it’s still worthwhile keeping an eye on the trend.

DIY Succulent Wreath
One thing I noticed since starting to live in the Bay Area is how lovely and full of variety succulents are, from the ubiquitous jade plants and prickly agaves to more exotic, interesting, downy-textured things.

This is very clever: a bookmark that automatically marks your place in the book due to it’s structure. Must see to appreciate.
