I've been luxuriating in my, amost 1200sf, home for quite a few years now.
For most of my adult life I've lived in apartments that were 600sf feet or under.
Well, come July, New York apartment living will be upon us once again and it looks like I'm back to where I once belonged. No complaints. I'm looking forward to it.
The apartment that I will be renting is just under 500sf of Manhattan goodness (while I spend the year figuring out where I want to wind up in NYC and if I should buy or rent). The most difficult part of the process is going to be restraining myself from trying to implement all the small space decorating ideas I have used in the past, still use in my small home (by L.A. standards) and new ones I'm really itching to try. It's a challenge that I welcome. With every frustrating design moment, an unforseen victory will arise when something works out that you didn't even see coming.
I will try and document the process and share with you all the highs and lows of this new adventure.
Till then, enjoy some inspirational photos from great small space living and feel free to share your own!
