Leslie's Little Loft
Location:New York, New York
What I Love About My Home
We love the loft spaces in the apartment for two reasons - they provide an amount of storage otherwise unheard of in most NYC studio apartments, and they also keep the main part of the apartment - where we live - minimal enough and airy, so the apartment looks and feels remarkably uncramped for two people. The brick walls and interesting scalloped/wave-like ceiling give a lot of character to this rental. We love the beach, so if you squint hard (and maybe pull one of the surfboards out from the loft storage), the apartment can feel a little bit like a beach bungalow in the city.
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
Lighting was an issue, since we're in the back of the building and only have the patio windows for natural light. We had to think smart about colors and furniture choices to keep the place from feeling like a dungeon.
