A Chelsea Studio Transformed

The New York Times

As part of an ongoing series documenting the process of having a professional interior designer work with homeowners on a tight budget, The New York Times shares the 550-square-foot Chelsea studio of Michael Logozzo and the work of interior designer Richard Mishaan.

This example is unique because Mr. Logozzo had to furnish the entire apartment — no small undertaking — for less than $10,000.

Though there was an obvious tension between the homeowner and designer, the end result is attractive, within budget and makes sense for small-scale city living. Check out the What It Cost graphic for Mr. Mishaan's shopping list.
