- What I Love About My Small Home:
- Given NYC’s hustle-and-bustle (not to mention prices), it’s been difficult to find a place entirely my own where I can actually feel at home. I stumbled on this fixer-upper, and fell in love. Home to a built-in shelving unit/desk and massive closets with additional storage space above, this apartment is perfect for me. I wanted to get my love for all things beautiful across, but not overwhelm guests with femininity, and think I’ve succeeded. I’ve worked my pants off to create a place to come home to after long days working in utter craziness, my own little sanctuary.
- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
- The biggest challenge of living in a small space is having a place designated for living and sleeping versus hosting guests, all sans wall to delineate the space. With the help of a patterned rug, favorite local artwork, and shelving, I’ve designed space specific to the important parts of my life: sleeping, working, reading, and having friends visit.
