This Home's Cheery Decor and Wallpaper Will Make You Smile — House Tour

Name: Jennifer Biswas, husband, son (2 years), daughter (8 months), dog
Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Size: 3,600 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

Years lived in: 6 years, renting

Emily’s south Minneapolis space may be teeny, but it packs a one-of-a-kind punch, the likes of which you may have never seen. All small space dwellers are faced with the reality of their situation — some conquer and others fail. Throughout Emily’s six years in this space she has clearly conquered the common challenges by mastering the art of storage, organization, and the daily task of bed making. And she keeps things fun and fresh by rearranging her furniture and large art collection regularly.
