Jay's Small Scale Renovation
Location:New York, New York
What I Love About My Home
I love that friends tell me it doesn't feel as small as its (barely) 400 square feet. Having lived in my apartment for several years before I renovated it, I had a strong idea of how I wanted to make the most of the space. I also love that I was able to mix in inexpensive elements (Ikea shelving, closet, for example) that don't look inexpensive.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Choosing small-scale pieces and editing everything down to just what made the most sense without sacrificing the things I loved was tough. I still face the challenge of having to get rid of something anytime something new comes in.
