We got a quick email from AT:Chicago reader Jacqueline, without much text but filled with inspirational photos of her small space - one of our favorite things to find in the inbox. She told us: Here is some Apartment Therapy...My TINY Hyde Park studio turned into a livable space! Done on a nearly zero budget! Jump below for all the photos:

Above the Jump: The patterned bedspread adds character and interest and combined with the retro-y artwork, works well in an apartment with so much vintage character and architectural detail. The long, white drapes are a nice addition, providing softness and privacy but not blocking out the light.

The combo of a chaise and armchair makes for a comfortable, but not overstuffed seating area. A not too tall shelving unit performs double duty as a room divider along with providing storage. It also looks like it allows some light to filter through from the bedroom area.

Love the double duty dressing table and home office.

A small (but big enough for 2!) dining space just outside the kitchen is brightened up with pink linens and a nice print. The archway entry is fab, as is the paint detail shown in all the photos, where a bright white ceiling floats above creamy walls, making the ceiling height seem even higher.

What a cozy space - we really like the vintage feel and smart ideas throughout. Thanks to Jacqueline for sharing with the AT:Chicago community!

If you'd like to show off and share your space, drop us an email - chicago (at) apartmenttherapy (dot) com or simply tag your photos in Flickr with "apartmenttherapychicago".
