- What I Love About My Small Home:
- When I first saw this apartment, I was amazed by its simplicity, with the kitchen open to the living room and both accessing a terrace.
All the furniture was chosen in order to maximize the space and keep the minimalism the apartment possessed. I really love the way the living room can be modelled and transformed: from inviting more people to have dinner to the possibility to open the living room into the terrace for a great summer party. This small space is multifaceted and, thanks to careful furnishing and decoration, can cope with all of these situations. It is proof that a small space can be the perfect home to entertain in!
- Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space:
- The biggest challenge of having two people living in such a small space was definitely ensuring all the needs were met: we wanted a good sofa, preferably leveraging on the great view of the apartment, a space for book storage, a table for up to 4 or 6 people where we could eat and also work, and a smaller workspace where we could to go through the daily emails, for example.
The multifunctionality of the furniture has been essential in the living room, as the table can be enlarged to accomodate up to 6 people, and the armchairs are also comfortable to work for long periods. The shelves on the wall also maximized the available space, freeing the rest of the room to allow the exterior view to spread along the interior.
