Cabin in the City

My work husband Garnet and his real life husband Brett built the most beautiful coach house mini cabin in the city and have agreed to share it with us!

When Garnet first told me he lived in 270 square feet I didn't believe him. Our first condo was 515 square feet and to me that was absolutely the smallest space two humans could functionally possibly live! I guess it helps a lot that they are the same size and share a closet! Seriously though clearly this is true love to live in these tight quarters!

When I first was invited over their space completely blew me away. They have made use of every single square millimetre, it is absolutely stunning and inspiring. They built everything from the garden, installing a kitchen, bathroom staircase and making their own pergola!! Their home absolutely has Matt and I re-examining our current and potential future space and realizing that often times less - beautifully done right - can be super special. 

:: A secret garden entrance ::

:: Cabin comes complete with vintage motorcycle ::

:: All in the details - love the horseshoe charm ::

:: Arial view - LOVE the wood burning fire place ::

:: Kitchen fit for kings - they installed this amazing staircase (found on kijii!!) to the bedroom loft ::

:: Behind the sliding barn doors is their closet and a stacked washer dryer set ::

:: Brilliant use of space - the bedroom loft ::

:: Miss Schnickers and Dandy - the other Queens of the residence ::

:: Simply perfect ::

This cabin in the city really is a true reflection of it's wonderful owners. Very warm and inviting with elegant touches everywhere you look. If you think this house is sexy check out their bodies!! Garnet teaches one of my favourite classes in the entire world - Body Art. It is a heart pumping, sweat pouring mix of yoga, Pilates, plyometrics and Brazilian dance. All wrapped up into one awesome hour. His music is amazing, the hour always flies by.

Right now Garnet teaches at Totum Tuesdays at 7 pm and Fridays at 6:15 pm. He's also started a brand new class in Leslieville at Chi Junky Mondays at 7. Follow Garnet on instagram here to stay up with his latest class offerings! See you in his class soon!
