Name: Paul Location: New York, NY Size: 495 sq. ft. Alcove Studio on the 11th floor of a 36 floor hi-rise Favorite resource: The flea. What inspired you? A stunning view of the decaying opulence, hi-rise construction and expressive skyline over Hell's Kitchen. Design Tip: Work with what you’ve got. Add and subtract. Mirrors & fresh flowers. EXTRA: (photo: entry/dining) A long entryway is nice because it’s not like I’m welcoming people into my bedroom—I ask for their coat first. (photo: living room from entry hall) My studio doesn’t feel small because you walk in and your eye goes right out the windows to the view. I always leave the blinds open. (photo: living room from bed alcove) If you have enough going on in your place, people won’t notice that you don’t have a bedroom. (photo: bed/work alcove) There is nothing more attractive than a comfortable bed. The kidney-shaped desk fits perfectly in the corner and makes a great work space with a view that can be a nice distraction. (photo: view from bed) A long window ledge make for great storage. The work station is functional, yet doesn’t scream, “freelance.”
