Michelle de la Vega is a Seattle based visual and installation artist, designer and welder and I love her. I recall her 'mini house' made a tour around blogland back in 2010 when it was featured in the NY Times. I stumbled across her website recently and realized we have never plugged her before so I figured better late than never, especially since she is the queen of industrial/re-purposed design and I LOVE that. First up is a house she remodeled. This is industrial design at it's finest. I have dreams about finding a massive industrial vintage sink like this one. It really is the highlight of this kitchen.
Here is Michelle's mini house that is actually a converted garage with a small addition. YES - a one-car garage (before photos here). Industrial chic is what this is, and it's so freaking cute. Especially the kitchen. I could never live in a space this small but I would totally take this converted garage in it's entirety and put it on the back lot at my sister's cottage and hang out there every summer.
