Some of you may know Gretchen Jones as the winner of season 8 of Project Runway, but I discovered her because her lovely, layered Brooklyn apartment caught my eye. She's turned her small space into an oasis in the city, a relaxing place that reminds her of her roots and reflects her bohemian style.
Somehow Gretchen's apartment manages to be cozy without feeling cluttered. Each treasured item has its place: the photographs leaning on the mantel, the pens and pencils collected into a little basket, the vintage typewriter tucked under a stack of books. To help with storing an impressive collection of clothes in a small space, Gretchen has created 'closets' by hanging curtains on either side of the fireplace.
