Michael Weschler for The New York Times

It is Thursday, and the New York Times Homes section takes usually takes us into million dollar designer digs; it is a nice change to see a modest 435 square foot home for three that cost far less. It doesn't look small, and according to the Times, actually appears spacious, airy and serene. A friend describes it: "To me, what's lovely about this space is that someone born in India and someone born in Holland, both with a design sense, have created a space that feels very Japanese, that reflects the Japanese ability to live in small spaces gracefully."

"Each space — for sleeping, cooking, eating, and socializing — is separate, and yet it flows together seamlessly in what anybody else would call a very small space." ::New York Times
