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.
What Jared said. (I've no idea what I would do with three sinks.)
wonderfully done some thing new and max utilization of space…hats off…

It just goes to show that when you have taste and vision, you don't need a grand showcase or big bucks. She manages to take the whole industrial thing up a few notches higher than other practitioners–her sinks and kitchen shelving are pure artistry.
