- What I Love About My Small Home:
- I love the high vaulted ceilings with a skylight above the bed; even though my place is very tiny and oddly shaped, the bright high walls give the illusion of more space. A walk-in closet bigger than the bathroom is also a huge plus!
Most of my furniture was bought from vintage or consignment stores, so I'm really proud of my mid-century-styled pieces purchased with craigslist-prices. On the topic of furniture, I also have a murphy bed -- I painted the backdrop and keep it unfolded permanently, which creates a little "headboard nook" type feeling.
My art is also very unique, as half was made by myself, and inspired by my growing up in Chicago. I also have albums framed (some of my prized possessions!) which cover a lot of white space on one of my walls.
And last but not least I can't leave out my terrarium from Twig; it makes the perfect centerpiece on my table!
- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
- Being a rental, the white walls and the common-beige carpet are something that I wouldn't normally have in a home of my own. I hung lots of art and used tiny area rugs to try to combat this.
Even though this studio is technically "one room," there are 3 distinct spaces (living, bed and dining areas.) The area rugs and segregated decor colors help visually achieve this.
