What I Love About My Small Home:
I was lucky that I signed my lease a few months in advance and had time to play around with furniture arrangement in my head. Living on the 3rd floor of a walk-up and being car-less does not give me a ton of furniture options. But as you can see I'm a huge proponent of Ikea, which works great with my limited budget and space. I've created separate and designated areas in my two small rooms and love how everything has its own place. I have great light in my apartment and even set up a small photo studio for portraits and headshots. I'm lucky to also have a large closet that helps me to keep things stored away but close by.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
I really like having designated areas for everything, I'm able to work on my crafts/sewing & photo stuff in a small place. I'm not sure I'll ever be without a KALLAX bookshelf, it can hold so many things! I think one of the biggest tips is to find the right furniture that fits both your needs and the size of your apartment.
