Post Your Baby: Trish's Swell Steel Shelter

Name: Trish Location: Soho.... Thompson & Prince St. How Big: 350 sq. ft. Favorite Element: Gigundo windows

Favorite Resource: For inspiration, British magazine "Living Etc." and Italian magazine "Casa Facile". For actual purchasing I'm in the same boat as the general populace: IKEA/Crate&Barrel/Vintage stores.

(Note: Trish submitted to the competition but it was lost during the server mess. We are happy to post her now. If YOU submitted and didn't hear from us, let us know. We didn't mean it and we'd love to post you.)

My home is swell because it used to be a store ages ago... I'm blessed with large windows, high ceilings and a private entrance. Alas, not much space though. I installed a new ceiling, floor, and bathroom (even designed the mosaic tile!) Knocked down a bit of wall too, to brighten the kitchenette.

Since I work at home (coloring comics) keeping things tidy but fun is a must. A trunk doubles as a coffee table. Flat boxes for under-bed storage. An old subway exit light always grabs attention from visitors. It's a work in progress, but I adore my wee place. Trish

On that sink: I first saw that kind of bathroom sink at the BHV store in Paris - their kitchen and bath departments are fabulous for small apartments. Alas, I couldn't just buy one and carry it home. After *hours* of scouring the web, I stumbled across a place just a few blocks from me: Nuovo Melodrom at 60 Greene St. All furniture up front but they had a surprise display of bath fixtures in the back. It took six weeks for the order to arrive but it was worth it. It's only 14" wide - perfect for that tight spot.
