Location: Clinton Hill — Brooklyn, New York
My apartment is a 475 square foot studio located on the vein that is Myrtle Avenue running right through the heart of Brooklyn. Filled with tree-lined streets and long-time residents; college students from Pratt Institute and St. Joseph's college; young professionals and aspiring every-things – it's one of the most interesting and charming neighborhoods in New York.
I love the hustle of New York, but over the past couple of years a piece of me fantasized about building a tiny house and working remotely from Vermont. I think New Yorkers dreaming about somewhere a little more rural and a little more green is common; but my fascination with the tiny house movement comes from my love of simplicity and efficiency. I was lucky to find a place that feels big due to the floor-to-ceiling windows, but that allowed me to express my orderliness and desire for simplicity in this way while remaining in the clouds above Brooklyn.
The building itself is gorgeous. It's all glass, with a lot of care put into the units. I've kept mine very minimal with a theme of white and glass. I used an incredible app called Furnishare to furnish a lot of the apartment and I definitely recommend anyone who's moving to check it out. I have a great clock from MoMa, a print from artist Henry Hargraves, a Rothko replica, and a gallery-wall-in-progress as deco.
