What Houzz contributors are saying:
Set your top three priorities. What do you most crave, need or want in your living space? Really think about this and be honest. It's not often you will get everything you want in a new place, but if you stick with your top three priorities (I suggest you actually list five but ultimately don't settle for fewer than three), you can get what is most important to you. For instance, is it really important to you to have a private outdoor space? An entrance that is not in an enclosed hallway? Lots of light or an open floor plan? These will point you quickly toward the spaces that may be a good fit and allow you to move past others that would not suit your needs.Start an inspiration/motivation file. It wouldn't hurt to also start saving images of small spaces you find inspiring (like perhaps the rooftop patio shown here), as well as organizing and decluttering ideas. When you are feeling discouraged, you can flip through your Houzz ideabooks and clippings for a boost.
A small bistro table seats four at the other end of the terrace. The teak table, stools and lounge chairs are all relatively lightweight and easy to move from sunny to shady spots. Lounge chairs, dining table, stools: Hauser
