Lucky enough, I found this affordable, well located apartment in January. It is teeny tiny but first and most important: it is cozy and mine. The biggest challenge was the size: finding the right furniture and creating storage on 333 square feet.
For example: the shower is in the kitchen, there a book shelves in the hall with doors to hide the mess, my wardrobe is in the living room. I tried to stick with a color concept to create a warm balanced, small but open space. The walls and the furniture are mainly white (painted), but I added some 50s items from etsy and ebay to make it unique.
It has a high ceiling and there is a lot of light due to the large windows which makes the place seem bigger as well. It is also my MelbourNest as I lived in Melbourne and the memories I brought when I moved to make me feel at home.
I thought about painting one wall in the living room moss grey, but couldn't decide yet, that's why I started with the numbers on the lamp. My friends are always surprised that it seems much larger than the actual size. And it's true: it's the perfect size for a single apartment in the city.
