Until late 2014, Isabelle and her roommate had lived two buildings up from me for years. While I was disappointed to learn that they planned to move into their own places, that sentiment didn’t last long—Isabelle soon found an apartment only a block further up our street. I remember her questioning its potential, but she quickly embraced the tiny space and transformed it into a comfortable, stylish home with the help of Alexander Reid, a friend and interior decorator.
