Angie has lived in this 350 square foot apartment in NYC 8 years.
If you read Apartment Therapy, you might have seen this tour. But as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to show it to you right away.
Angie is a designer, and obviously knows how to utilize and decorate a small space to perfection.
She describes her aesthetic style as “champagne taste on a house wine” budget.
We recently toured a small space home that had dark walls. It seems to be a trend. What do you think of it?
She has done a great job of separating specific areas: living space, bedroom, and dining space, without the benefit of walls to separate them.
Patience, she says, is the key to designing a good room. (Note the dark lamp shade against the dark wall.)
Above is a dining space where she can seat four. So even though she lives in such a small space, she can entertain.
I am really surprised, pleasingly so, that she managed to fit so much in this small space. And that she did it so well and with sophistication.
She enters her apartment by passing the tiny kitchen and bathroom before she ever gets to her larger living space.
Shelves on the wall take the eye up. Vertical storage is a necessity in a small home. A thin console hugs the wall.
A tiny kitchen, but she has managed to make it work. It just takes creativity and determination!
The bathroom too is small, as is many apartment bathrooms. But it has a level of elegance that befits her style.
Angie has a blog if you’d like to visit her. It is called The 40 by 40 Project.
I hope you enjoyed this small space tour. Living small can be done and done well!
