How to maximize small space homes has been an idea we’ve expressed here at the Paloma Terrace website since it launched in 2015. The following information based on a New York Times article supports our expression, and we encourage you to read their full feature. It offers many useful tips.
The key to understand how to maximize small space homes is, “Every inch counts.” From under the bed to unclaimed wall space over your head. While moving can be stressful, living in a small space home need not be. And it certainly helps to be smart about how you approach it.
Julia Montanez, an interior designer who lives in a 450-square-foot Manhattan apartment said, “You have to stop being a hoarder. The secret to small-space living is trying to avoid owning too much stuff; that’s a good practice for life. You don’t have to be a minimalist, but you have to get really creative where you store your things and maybe think twice about buying something new.”

To our Paloma Terrace Residents and future Residents,
After studying traffic patterns of when people contact the office and we miss them, we have decided to change the Paloma Terrace office hours to better serve our current Residents and new incoming Residents.
Beginning Saturday, October 22, 2016, our office will be open (and closed) as follows:
- Monday through Friday the office will be open 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
- Saturday and Sunday the office will be closed.
- The office will also be closed for lunch between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm, as it is now.
The new hours put the Paloma Terrace office on a more traditional track compared to the varying hours across the week that will continue until the 22nd.
Welcome to our new website!
We are proud to announce our new website launched at http://palomaterrace.wpengine.com. Mesa Vista apartments was purchased July 30th, 2015 and has been renamed to Paloma Terrace. With the full name being Paloma Terrace One Bedroom Apartment Homes. Like it says here on the website.
Why the name change? First, there is another apartment community nearby with the same prior name. Second was using the Spanish word Mesa, which translates to ‘table’ or ‘flat.’ Our two beautiful acres in Colorado Springs are hardly flat. Take a look at our rolling green courtyard lawn to see that. Third there is a view, but we decided that emphasizing the terrace was more appropriate. Paloma is Spanish for “dove.” It goes well with terrace and honors the history of this area.
