- What I Love About My Small Home:
- Having lived in New York City for the past 17 years, I am no stranger to living in small spaces. This apartment is my first studio in the city! I love the openness and having a real dining space. I carefully planned out the apartment with distinct zones for living, dining, studying and sleeping all within 430 sq.ft!
As an avid DIYer, many of my belongings are handcrafted or scouted vintage items. I have been collecting unique pieces for years and have also taken the time to repair and refurbish many of them. I hand stenciled the foyer’s painted wall pattern and built the “fauxdenza” from an affordable Ikea cabinet. The stool, the dining chairs and the pair of nightstands were all found at a thrift store or on Ebay that I then painted and refinished. Each piece is a labor of love that adds to the cozy atmosphere (reached within a reasonable budget).
