How Do We Make the Move? 3-Bedroom to a Small Studio

Q: My husband and I are artists and have been living in Jackson Heights in New York City for the last 6 years. Our apartment is a huge 3 bedroom, with 2 full baths, a great kitchen, a separate dining room, a living room with a balcony, and hardwood floors throughout. It's kind of awesome. The drawback: there's not too much of a nightlife for a young couple with no kids and an adorable Frenchie named Pixel. After much debate, we decided to severely downsize to a 450 square foot studio in a luxury condo in Long Island City:

Walking distance to our art studio in Greenpoint
Only 5 min from Grand Central
Super dog friendly neighborhood with lots of great bars
The condo is loaded with awesome amenities

How the hell are we supposed to move into a studio???

The sheer thought is giving us nightmares. When we were married three years ago, we fully furnished our apartment to make it home. Therefore, we have a house full of real furniture... and, I should probably mention, a storage room for holiday decorations and artwork (bashful grin).

Help us please! Thanks!
