Suki's Crafty Condo
What I Love About My Home
My 470 sq ft condo is situated in the beautiful tudor building built in 1928 on the charming pre-depression landmark block. Despite its âtinyâ size, I love its open floor plan with unique period details such as coved ceiling, hardwood floors, leaded glass windows, built-in dining nook, and funky tiffany-blue tiles in the bathroom. Having a âtinyâ condo has motivated me to paint and be crafty. I first started painting because I could not afford to buy any real paintings for my place, but it has become my favorite pastime. I also made a toilet paper holder out of a retro phone and a kitchen ceiling light fixture out of a colander.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
The small size of the space has forced me to become more creative with my decoration choices in order to avoid clutterness and create a comfortable, inviting space. All my furniture is space-conscious. Clean lines and petite sizes, but comfortable. I chose green and yellow for the wall colors because of its warmth and coziness. Although it is a studio condo, I have tried my best to give each space its own character. I did not want my studio condo look like a studio. For example, my living room is very simple and cozy yet my kitchen is full of colors and very retro.
