there are 5 of us in our 800 square foot nyc apartment and we have plenty of built in storage and double duty furniture and it still is tough. There are times we wish we had a house and yard. One day!

After hitting snooze 4 or 5 times I drag myself out of bed at 7:30 and make a triple shot cappuccino with skim milk and since I must dunk in morning I grab a pack of Belvita cookies which I buy in bulk ( I'm obsessed). For the next 30 minutes I read my email, skim the news online, and watch In The Papers on NY1. Then I quickly splash water on my face throw on my dog walking clothes and take my adorable pit bull mix out for a long walk and a game of catch and head back home. At that time I feed the dog, shower, then knock out a quick household chore like dishes or sweeping and start my day at work (I telecommute). Some mornings I start the day an hour earlier so I can squeeze in a yoga class. I do enjoy my mornings much more now since I don't have to deal with the crowded C train to head to the office. Thank god for Skype which makes telecommuting now possible for me!

I love it! Please and everyone else painted their brick houses. If they used Stucco siding that would be a crime

The kitchen cabinets really brought the mood down and appear too dark for that room- "ice white" it the new stainless steel for kitchens- I would have gone all white, with maybe a few brushed silver and glass accents (like the cabinets). Plus, I hate dark floors- they hide dirt- I don't want a dirty kitchen floor- its like an invitation for critters and bugs.
