By default, I like my houses to be “soft.”
When I live in a city, I usually have one bedroom and one bathroom.
I don’t have a lot of space to move around in.
My house is very compact and has a lot to offer, but I’m also really conscious of making sure it’s not too much of a home away from work.
When I’m in Sydney, I often have my house at the end of the street and can easily walk or bike to the office.
I love being able to walk to the beach and have a coffee in the backyard.
But the best way to live is not at the edge of town, where I have to navigate my way around town and back.
So I think it’s important to think of your own home as a soft, comfortable space.
I find it’s easier to just put in the extra space that I need to have a good space for my family.
I think the more I can do that, the more comfortable I feel in my home.
