East Village Shoebox

Imagine taking a 500 square foot apartment with only one window and make it liveable.  I had posted a photo of this not too long ago, but I didn’t have any photos of the rest of the place.  I love the sleeping nook in this apartment and the space was just executed so well.

“[They] incorporated tons of white and wood to open the space and make it feel lighter. They also removed most of the doors and replaced the empty wall space with sleek and simple compact storage. In fact, there is storage space within nearly every surface of the apartment, including overhead spots and even tucked into the stairs climbing toward the loft.  Minimal fixtures and alcoves built directly into the tile walls make the bathroom appear large and luxurious, even by New York standards! The kitchen also feels super spacious with even more storage and ultra chic appliances offset by brightening white tile.”

180 Square Foot Loft

I found this gem today, it’s a 180 square foot loft apartment that is lived in by two New Yorkers.  The place features a ton of shelves for all their books, a nice looking bathroom, a decent sized kitchen and a small reading and meditation nook.  While there are some modern flairs to this space, the warm wood tones make it feel very cozy and homey.

271 Square Foot Designer’s House

We have an interesting tiny apartment that allows a product designer to live and work in such a small space.  He has some really interesting design ideas and I really like his loft bed!

Catskills House

So I found this little gem from a good friend of mine, thanks John!, this house is small but packs a ton of charm.  It is a 9 x 14 foot house located in the Catskills.  Originally a hunting cabin I believe, she had done quite a bit with not too much.

Ms. Foster has her own shabby-chic retreat. It may not have a bathroom or a kitchen, but it is a dream of Victoriana: stacks of Limoges china with tiny rosebud patterns; chandeliers dripping crystal; billows of tissue-paper garlands.

This is all the more impressive because she renovated the 9-by-14-foot cottage, an old hunting cabin, herself. The cost of renovating and furnishing it: $3,000.

Tiny Studio Apartment

Here is a Tiny Apartment With an interesting visual style.  I really love her wall art / storage solution.  Sitting at around 211  square feet, I can’t figure out if the apartment is actually this dark or is it just the photographs.

Location: Bronx, New York
Size: 211 square feet

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? It is difficult to say what my favorite element in my small house is, but I have to tell you that I love my shoe storage and of course my lamps (specially the floor one). Ah…and of course my wall, where the TV is.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? I had convinced my self one more time, that you can improve the look of your house and make it funcional with a small budget and a little bit of imagination. Inspiration came of course from web sites like Apartment Therapy, Mocoloco, etc..
