What inspired you?
My tiny apartment is the original living room of an old converted row house. With a 12 ft. ceiling, hardwood floor and a working fireplace, a French café theme was my inspiration. The art I chose for it are classic French posters and prints. I hung sheer curtains on the 8 ft. windows to provide ample sunlight. A ladder leads to my loft bedroom.
...Due to a ceiling height of only 4 ft., I selected a low framed bed. My galley-type kitchen just to the right of the ladder, mean I keep supplies and appliances to a minimal. While staying on a tight budget, I've created a very comfortable place to live. Being clutter-free gives my small apartment the feeling of open space!
Less is more. When in doubt, throw it out.
