Name: Niki Azevedo and Bennett Harrell
Location: Williamsburg, Brooklyn— New York
Size: 452 square feet
Years lived in: Renting 6 years
Niki's 450 square foot Brooklyn apartment is a reflection of the years she's lived as an artist in New York City. From DIY wallpaper, to rescued portraits of Jesus on the cross, to a mounted deer head, Niki's personality shines throughout the space.
"I am never giving up this apartment," Niki says. "For as long as I live, this apartment will be in the picture."
This creative woman cites her Florida roots as design inspiration. "My bedroom used to be very Florida — seafoam green and pink." She recently completely redid the bedroom space to better reflect a new chapter of this home — her partner Bennett moving in.
