1. Who was your favorite entry and why? (other than your own apt.)
"Jenny & Clove's LAish Pad: The openness of the space with its dark wood and light fabrics sets up a stage for the outdoor patio -- it's a serene space in the heart of Manhattan."
2. Why you should be the champ?
"For us, a small apartment has to reflect personality while being functional and cozy. The challenge of furnishing on a budget made us think outside the (small) box:
salvaged mirrored doors (09 +10) create extra storage
inexpensive AC alumium sheets update the kitchen (07)
new wall moldings add dimension (03+04)
masking tape becomes wallpaper (02+06)
christmas ornaments on metal rods become a chandelier in the kitchen (008)
All that mixed with vibrant colors and our finds off the street create an inviting space that is only missing one thing: a kick-ass coffee table from DWR."
