What I Love About My Home
i love how spacious my studio feel even though the main living area is only 12 x 19.5 feet. i have great high ceilings and beautiful pre war molding that works in conjunction with my modern style. i get great sunlight during the day and at night i can lay in bed and look directly at the neon lit sign of the famous Chelsea Hotel. i love coming home to my apartment every day and all the effort in painting, decorating, hanging (and rehanging) pictures has all paid off in the end!
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
the biggest challenge was to keep my studio feeling open and spacious while still conforming to my need for storage and separate "rooms" within the apartment. my furniture is all low and has legs so it gives the feeling of more space by seeing the floor underneath everything. i tried to get pieces that were multifunctional and learned to really organize my closets so the apartment does not feel cluttered or have too many storage pieces. i debated getting a partition or screen between my bed and the couch to break off the space and make the bedroom area more private, but in the end i chose not to have anything extra that would add weight or take natural light away from the main room. instead i worked with my rug, artwork and couch to make a distinction between the rooms. now i just need to make sure i make my bed every day!
