Describe your home’s decor style in 5 words: Cozy, eclectic, chic, pink, and functional.

What’s your favorite thing about your home? Living in New York City you don’t see too much green, so I filled my apartment with plants and it just feels so alive! Well, that and my pink bathroom.

What’s your least favorite thing about your home? That there are approximately 100 coats of paint on the walls and the heater makes some scary noises.

What’s your best small space trick? Storage in a small apartment is limited, so get creative.

I use the built-in hamper in my bathroom to store toilet paper and other bathroom items.

I also recommend getting a couch that has storage (mine is from IKEA and holds all of my sheets, towels, tools, and crafts (it also doubles as a pull-out bed for guests).

And let the sun in! Instead of a solid room divider I hung macrame plant hangers from a clothing rack so that there is distinction between the rooms but still keeps the space airy and light.
