I love our balcony in the morning, and the amount of light in the apartment. especially the skylight over our bed is great; we fall asleep under the stars every night. It is also pretty quiet because we live on 5th floor, so we can hear the birds sing instead of traffic noise.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
1. Get rid of everything you don't enjoy everyday! 2. Furniture doesn't have to be tiny, if its function is versatile or substantial to your everyday needs. Ex a big bed or sofa, or a great big table that can be used both for dining, crafting, entertaining, working etc. 3. Think vertically. Shelves and hooks are your best friends.
