I think my 500sf studio is a good example of what you can do with an open layout and a walk-in closet. My style is "happy functional." The biggest challenge was lack of space, depressing light fixtures, and poorly-designed kitchen. When I saw the studio, I envisioned a large living space with a sleeping nook, so I converted the walk-in closet into a bedroom (aka bedwomb).
