Small Living in the Big Apple










How small you might ask? Real small. Like 178 square feet small. That's right, I'm no mathematician, but teeny wouldn't be an understatement. And yet, this place packs quite a punch despite its lilliputian dimensions. Tell me, could you live large in this NYC studio? Read more about the owner's creative design solutions here.

I sent this inspirational NY Times apartment link to my daughter who is living in a "400 sq.ft.", fifth floor walk up in West Village. (Actually after visiting her, I question if her apartment is even 400 sq.ft.) But no problem, right? Look at this place for absolute inspiration. Fabulous usage of every inch. The guy is a genius.
Great scouting Nelya.

I've lived at 12 different addresses since graduating college, and my favorite far away was a small 500 sq ft studio apartment in a high-rise tower.

Although I am partial to our new house.

I love little. And I love it more and more the older I get.

For fun, jump over to http://tinyurl.com/yz9l6zs and read the funny anon comment on this tiny apartment.

i love it. in fact i think it would be awesome to have a small space like this just as a place for me to get away when i needed. my own little sanctuary that i could decorate any way i wanted. i think this guy is a great stylist. styling a small space like this is way more difficult than it looks.

love this! i couldn't do it with all five of us, but it would be fun to have a little place in NYC for a weekend getaway...especially if it looked like this one.

I think it's pretty cute -- this guy is a friend of Nick Olsen and those dudes obviously have style.

Not a fan of the plaid throw, though. Must just be me.

I couldn't even imagine, but it sure is cute!
