What I Love About My Small Home:
I love my big windows!! It definitely makes the apartment feel much bigger than it is. Not to mention, I get to overlook Governor's Island and the downtown Manhattan skyline -- not too shabby! I love to have friends over so I made sure to create a space for entertaining. Overall, I love how I feel when I walk home -- it's warm and inviting (great for a homebody like me!)
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
The biggest challenge was creating a living, eating, working and sleeping area all in one room while trying to make everything feel separate. Thinking vertically always helps in a small space. I installed two shelving systems for entertainment as well as my office space. The position of the furniture is key to creating separation of spaces. I also installed a string curtain to separate the sleeping area from the rest of the apartment. I love the string curtain over a solid curtain because it creates a divide without breaking up the space. It allows flow throughout the space, making it feel larger.
