What I Love About My Small Home:
Our apartment was gut renovated and redesigned by The New Design Project. Although it was done professionally, this project was executed on a challenging budget, with no single fixture or piece of furnishing (apart from the kitchen cabinets) costing more than $500. I love how they injected bags of personality into the space by mixing fun little details (colored mosaic cement tiles, quirky art compositions...) with architectural features (exposed brick wall, metal structures) and incorporating repurposed objects (cinder blocks used as a bedside table, a reclaimed oak window transformed into a coffee table). They were also really effective at inexpensively elevating the much needed storage options for the space (an ikat upholstered IKEA dresser, decorative ladder turned into an extra hanging space).
