Name & Location: Chloe in New York City, New York
My Favorite Room: Living Room
Specs: 75 square feet in a rental apartment

Only in NYC can a room that is less that 100 square feet function as a dining, living and entertainment space. That is exactly what this space is and I love every inch of it. It took a while to get it just right and now it finally reflects my style. I love coming home.

When I moved into my Co-op last fall, I was a little intimidated by the space, or lack thereof. Having lived in New York City for over five years, I was no stranger to small spaces, but this was likely the smallest space I've ever called home. Fast forward nine months and I adore my little haven. I was able to keep it airy, feminine, playful and chic.

One of my favorite pieces is the mini-credenza I scored from an estate sale in Connecticut. I mean, it's just perfection.

Another piece I absolutely adore is my drop leaf dining table. When I found it I literally screamed out loud, with both leaves down, it's barely a foot across, and fully extended it can comfortably seat four!

My bookshelf is an easy IKEA hack, I just spray painted it gold to go with the rest of the decor. My living room rug is one of my biggest statement pieces, that and the Greek key mirror really bring big style to an otherwise small space.
