    After a recent break-up I’m downsizing from 950 sq/ft to 350 sq/ft and I’m taking both the cats. I’m definitely searching for ways to add vertical space for them to make up for the lack of horizontal space while also leaving room for my own things.

    I’ve been moved out of my 500sqft studio apartment into a small house for a year now, but still find your videos so fun and helpful! ❤

    My cat was perfectly happy in my studio apartment and also did not ever knock anything over. She had a nice view from the 18th floor at the time. 😊

    I actually use a mix of real and fake candles. I also have a faux fireplace/tv stand. I put the fake candles in places where it would be nice to have candles but might be risky. I have them mostly in gold but I found some red ones. The easiest way to keep it from looking cheap is to buy glass faux candles or really thick wax faux candles. I also love heavy faux furs.

    I have two very real cats so I put real candle within reach. Luckily they just stare at them

    Thank you so much for answering my question. I’m currently struggling with attachment with some of my belongings from living in a space that had more closet and storage space. The clutter triggers my anxiety so bad, that I recently just threw a bunch of stuff out instead of donating like I typically would.

    By the way, I love that holiday decor video. I use the fairy lights tip and a few holiday decor items, mostly faux greenery and florals because I don’t have space for a Christmas tree. Honestly, it works out great.

    I love love love your style. I wish I was half as good. What we’ve seen of your apartment looks amazing – I have a hard time imagining what you think it still needs.

    i think cat only destriy things when they are frustrated or don’t feel good in the space , if they feel secure or not be boring or alone majority of the time they will not destroy everything
