Before & After: Small Space, Big Changes

Before & After: Small Space, Big Changes

The owner of this Gramercy Park studio splits his time between New York and Hong Kong. Having finally decided that he was tired of coming home to the same dated space, he enlisted interior Designer Jarret Yoshida to give his small apartment a big facelift.

Jarret and his team completed the project in a speedy 3 months, and the homeowner returned to a completely transformed space. Jarret wanted the space to have a modern, multicultural aesthetic, and be functional as well as beautiful. To that end, he created a custom sofa, whose low back doubles as extra seating during parties and informal visits. The new cabinetry in the kitchen was created by a local furniture maker, and the stone countertops are made in Brooklyn.

The coffee table is vintage, a nice counterpart to the sleek lines of the couch.

A sleeping niche makes for a 'bedroom', even in a studio apartment. The bed is a custom design; curtains are from West Elm.

To see more of this project, including the studio's new kitchen, check out the remodel on TheSweeten.
