What I Love About My Home
I redesigned it myself, down to every inch of space, so it's "just right for just me"--even the cat's litter box has the perfectly hidden spot! Storage nooks accessed from different rooms fit together like a chinese puzzle. It is one big box with three levels that create spaces of different scales and levels of intimacy--from the 14' high, brightly lit living area to the cozy sleeping alcove just tall enough that I can stand up straight.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Making the tiny hallway-kitchen work for somebody who likes to cook was a real challenge, as was getting lots of storage into the space. There had been two tiny closets, one of them in front of a precious window! After having spent 10 years designing NYC apartments for clients, it was such a treat to use all the space-saving strategies on my own place, finally.
