What I Love About My Small Home:
I love the warm modern feel -- the contrast between the stark white and the wood. The glass doors allow for plenty of extra sun so the space is super bright. The most unique feature in the apartment is the skewed floating box (back wall of kitchen) which separates the main living spaces. It's an artful focal point in the room, almost like a sculpture. I also love the small Edison light bulbs on the ceiling -- they provide an interesting texture during the day and great warm light at night. The alcove that serves as a DJ booth isn't bad either - it was a perfect fit.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
The biggest challenge has been storage. The kitchen has plenty of cabinets but where do I put a broom, mop, tools etc.? Downsizing my belongings to only the essentials was the first step and has been liberating, but customizing the one closet with organizers has been the true lifesaver. I've fit everything in it: clothes, shoes, extra art work, luggage, even a small filing cabinet. Also a bed with storage drawers underneath has been great for linens, towels and other random items.
