The March issue of Metropolitan Home is full of ideas for small spaces. In addition to showcasing beautiful homes, the issue offers a roundup of small-scaled furniture and the editorial staff's own tips for making the most of small apartments. Our personal favorite is the downtown apartment of architect Jeffrey Povero and Jeffrey Schneider... We love the custom bookshelves that take advantage of the ceiling height and the corner of the bedroom.
The 860-square-foot apartment (with additional 600-square-feet of outdoor space) is part of a renovated hospital and has exposure from three sides. In his redesign of the existing apartment, Povero took advantage of the high ceilings and natural light to create a warm, inviting space.
