Wow! Check out this elegant 350-square-foot studio (pictured above), featured in the Home & Garden Section of the New York Times. Having lived in some rather small apartments, I am always interested in seeing how people manage to make tiny spaces feel spacious and open (granted, the vaulted ceilings and huge windows really account for a lot of it, though I also love her simple & sweet decorating style). The lucite(?) chairs and clean-lined dining table are especially wise picks for a small space, since they don't take up visual space and allow for an unfettered view out the window. The whole effect is calming, sophisticated, and surprisingly airy given the apartment's lilliputian dimensions.
I must admit that I am enjoying the additional space I now have since moving into the new condo (almost 1200 square feet versus my previous space of 500 square feet), though I think having a small space forced me to be more creative with the decor.
What about you? What kind of space do you live in, and if it's a small one, how do you make it feel larger?
