"Look. Pay attention," April Blankenship writes in her Flickr profile, under the moniker Precious Roy.
It's easy to forget about small details like shadows and the play of the light -- which makes them all the more affecting when a homeowner gives them thought. A homeowner like Blankenship almost has to: She and her husband live in a truly tiny house of less than 200 square feet that they built in Kamiah, Idaho. She calls this photo "prisms in bathroom," and the colors are cast by a glass crystal hanging outside the window -- a beautiful way to bring in a decorative element without taking up any space at all. (Homeowner Karin Karlsson used shadows similarly in the entry and sleeping alcove of her lovely 375-square-foot apartment in Sweden.)
You can read about Blankenship's tiny house on her blog, A Great Leap in the Dark, and follow her tiny-house inspiration board on Pinterest. (By the way, I'm hoping to write about her tiny house soon. Any questions you'd like me to ask her?)
We'd love to feature your inspirational photos of home. It can be your home, a project you've worked on as a professional, or just someone's home you snapped on a day's meandering. We welcome you to submit up to six a day to Yahoo! Homes' Flickr group. If you can provide details in the caption, all the better.
