Sandy's Southern Exposure
Location:Brooklyn, New York
What I Love About My Home
I love the light. There are only two windows and the ceilings are low enough to touch without standing on tiptoe (really), but the southern exposure illuminates the whole apartment from morning until evening and makes it cheery. I couldn't stand the thought of blocking any of that lovely light with curtains... so I never hung any.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Storage was basically nonexistent. There's only one tiny closet, so I improvised with expandable hanging bars in a nook in the bedroom. Most of my shoes reside in the kitchen cabinets or in the oven (gasp). I really had to figure out which "things" were important enough to keep in my home, and then create a specific place for each and every one of them. The biggest help is my bed frameâthe mattress lifts up to expose a hollow storage space for off-season clothing, tools, and luggage.
