Remember these babies? Here's the last roundup of stellar Small Cool entries from last year. These were the creme of the crop. Tony and Hilary won the grand prize, and they, along with Patrick's family and Luca were all featured in various newspapers and shelter magazines in the weeks that followed. Every room is inspiring. Enjoy!... Name: Tony & Hilary - GRAND PRIZE WINNERS! Location: Fort Greene, Brooklyn, NY Size: 460 sf Pageviews: 24,020 168 Comments: This is one of my favorites. I love the fact that it's an unspoken requirement to have/photograph the kitty cats. Always adds so much more character to a home. ~ Oakland >> Tony and Hilary's 3 in 1 Studio >> Finalist Post --- Name: Mat Location: Greenwich Village, NYC Size: 200 sf Pageviews: 14,982 157 Comments: SUPER WOW! ~ Venus-Thames >> The S.S. Waverly >> Finalist Post --- Name: Patrick & Family Location: West Village, NY Size: 640 sf Pageviews: 26,962 123 Comments: Far and away the winningest entry! From the card catalogue toy box to the clever high-flying storage in the "master" bedroom, this family home is a paragon of small and cool. I applaud the work you've put into making this space perfectly livable, and I wholeheartedly disagree with Modfan: cruelty has nothing to do with this home. It's definitely small by U.S. standards, but it is absolutely doable. Cozy. ~ allisonlindsay >> Family of Four’s “Two Bedroom” Studio >> Finalist Post --- Name: Luca Andrisani Location: Chelsea, NYC Size: 400 sf Pageviews: 29,887 200 Comments: Goodness. This is amazing. ~ Joanne A. >> Luca's Surplus of Storage & Light >> Finalist Post --- Name: Kristin Location: West Village, NYC Size: 525 sf Pageviews: 20,241 96 Comments: I love the light, airy feeling in your bedroom, and I love the configuration of your photos. The placement of the sheepskin doesn't make much sense to me. Maybe it would look better at the foot of the blue chair?... ~ mjr >> Kristin's Cozy Village Studio --- Name: Trilby Location: Village, NY Size: 440 sf Pageviews: 14,605 103 Comments: it's like a little jewel box, i love it! and to be honest i like that there is not a huge amount of color. it makes the space so light and shows off the wonderful collection of chrome and glass! ~ emh >> Trilby's New York Minute Retreat
