What inspired you?
Less is More, when you get stuff off the floor! This is an exceptionally small apartment – only 371sf! – sized more appropriately for our dog, Lucy, than two adults. There were NO closets provided by the landlord, so we designed and built a unique storage wall that extends from the sleeping area back to the kitchen.
…Each section is sized to hold exactly what we own. The living area is small, yet feels spacious thanks to the modular shelving system which features an entertainment area, bookshelves, and small desk area. All of the furniture is lightweight and easy to take with us to the next (hopefully larger) apartment.
Go vertical! Let the walls hold your stuff to open up floor space. Necessity is the Mother of Invention…
