Darla & Andrew are both creatives pursuing their dreams; he’s a web designer and she’s a freelance accessory designer. When they first saw this apartment they knew right away they had to have it. In Brooklyn, outdoor space is highly coveted, and this one has an outdoor deck to boot. Since Darla works from home, she took on the tiny room over the stairs and made it her creative play area; this is where she works, sews, designs, and runs her blog whatido.com. It also serves as a walk-in closet, which displays her clothes and accessories like her own little chic boutique.
