For some people, the idea of living in communes is a bit, well, taboo. But back in 2009, Etsy gave us a peek inside "La Selva," a communal property in California, where Nikki Silva of "Kitchen Sisters" explains how peaceful and actually, quite beautiful this lifestyle can be.
In the video above we see how Silva and eight others have made a home that's completely functional and stylish, allowing us to abandon any misconceptions we may have had about this lifestyle. Watch the video and head over to Etsy for more information.
Check out this slideshow of pocket neighborhoods for a glimpse at how others live simply.
