I recently received a message from a lovely reader inquiring as to whether or not I believed the lady of a very small house might retain a vanity–a space where she might gaze at her natural beauty, apply makeup, dramatically spritz perfume, and the like. A dedicated beauty station. A surface wholly apart from the (limited) kitchen counters or the top of the toilet tank. Was that asking for so much, she wanted to know?
Homegirl, in a word: no.
You can have your scant floor plan and eat your makeup, too. I mean: eat your limited square footage and have your beauty, too. Wait, when do we eat?

The proof is the pudding (there’s the food!), and these are some custardy-photos: small spaces be damned; there’s hope for a beauty station for you.
