This TED talk started everything for us.  After watching it we decided to look at our small apartment in a new way. Suddenly our apartment seemed huge, or at least totally livable. We decided 600sqft was enough for us and that if we used it even more effectively i.e. multiple uses for one space, then we could stay here much longer than we initially thought.  We could actually live in the city with a baby.  

I love what Life Edited is doing and find their message of living with less stuff but not compromising on quality, design or happiness so inspiring.
