The Pitch:

I had always dreamt of and obsessed over what I would do when I bought my first place. Although plain, ugly, and neglected, this place was sunny and quiet, with high ceilings and prewar charm.

I reconfigured the old kitchen, bathroom, and doorways to be more space-efficient and create a multi-purpose central room. I used modern materials, friendly colors, lots of warm wood, and variations in pattern and texture to make it feel like my home. I've also found a role for the small-footprint, custom-designed furniture I've made over the years. And my cat loves the place!

(Note: Jill Slater profiled my apartment last week for the "house tour"
feature. Originally I was not going to enter this contest, but then I got inspired by comments on the web site saying that I should. So I hope I can still enter this contest! Thanks!)
