Location: Allston, Massachusetts
I'm a restaurant owner and bought my 340 square foot condo 4½ years ago. Soon after moving in I became obsessed with small spaces, interior design and renovation work in general. I demolished what was left of the kitchen, bath and entry way area while leaving some cool old nods to the past (original wood moldings throughout and the hot water heater I ended up painting dark maroon). I didn't have a style I was going for initially but in the end I shamelessly dubbed it Urban Industrial Cozy. My favorite aspects of the condo are the colors, the view of Commonwealth Avenue, the milk crate chairs that roll under the coffee table(s) and the master loft I built with the wardrobe wire racks and dress bar below which left me room for a closet — filled with tools!! I think the style, flow and feel of my condo very much represents my personality and how I want to feel when entering a space. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
