With Two Cats In The Yard
Life Used To Be So Hard
So, just got an email from one of the producers of the cable series
Small Space, BIG STYLE informing me that my humble abode will be one of those featured in their upcoming episode on creatively decorated small living spaces in Seattle.
They'll be in town the end of the month, and figure on spending two or three hours getting footage of the space, along with a brief interview and probably some off-camera narration to boot. The episode should air sometime early this summer.
I must admit, not being much of a TV watcher (heck, I don't even have cable!) I'm not familiar with the show, although friends have told me a bit about it. But, just to give you an idea, here's a brief description from their website:
"Small Space, Big Style features incredibly stylish homes, all measuring in at under 1,000 square feet.
Meet the creative homeowners who have made the most out of the limited space that they have, and learn the tricks to make any small space seem bigger."
So, what kind of stylish accoutrements can you expect to see at Chez Comte?
- A swanky day-glo retro bar set up featuring classic Hellerware serving items, including a rare bullet tray, and even rarer Sergio Asti designed ice bucket.
- A complete 1970's era Oster Kitchen Center (mine's classic "avacado green" & has an ice crusher instead of the food processor).
- A collection of stainless-steel small kitchen appliances.
- A clever use of a narrow ledge along one side of my kitchen (I'm guessing it's some sort of inset for the foundation) converted into a display shelf for my extensive collection of hot sauces, and NASA and "Star Trek" memorabilia.
- My Gilligan's Island-meets-Archie McPhee inspired bathroom!
Of course there's no guarantee as to how extensive my segment will be (and there's always a possibility they might not use it at all - they're looking at about 20 other locations here as well as mine), but it's still a bit of a thrill to be included as one of only a score of incredibly stylish micro living spaces in Seattle.
