What I Love About My Small Home:
We live in Stuyvesant Town--a middle class development in Manhattan with nearly 9,000 apartments. There are a limited number of different apartment layouts. It's constantly fun to figure out ways to make your space stand out from the crowd and surprise and delight visitors.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
Learn how to edit. It's a toughie, but do you really still enjoy that three dollar ceramic chunk you bought at the West Elm clearance rack? If you don't absolutely love it or it doesn't show your personality, leave it in the community laundry room.

Have a sense of humor. Juxtapose your Bigfoot sculpture from SkyMall with your antique teak Buddha from India. You won't notice the size of your space if looking around makes you smile.

Switch it up. Sure, everything should have a place. Sure, everything should be in its place. But keep the space interesting by moving things around every few weeks or months. That tired still life in the kitchen takes on a whole new meaning in the bathroom.
