Fantastic style and use of a small space. One question - are you sure it is 650 sq. ft (I have a 600 sq. ft 1 bed apt where the living room is about the size of your apt)? Looks more like 450 - which makes the design even more impressive!

I've seen this look at the showroom where I bought my Tiles (Nemo Tiles in NYC -- also online). I am confident you can create a similar look for much cheaper. Here's a line that has glass tiles with a similar mosaic treatment...

Dynasty Art - Big Brick line

Best of luck!

Ravensong - The backsplash is from Crossville's Colorblox Too line - the style is "Chopsticks". Purchased from Nemo Tile in Manhattan. It's very affordable.

Holiday1 - The comforter, shams, and geometric pillows are from West Elm (no longer in stock) but I purchased them new on eBay - you might try to find them there. The rectangle pillow is from Crate & Barrel. Good luck!

Fab place. Especially love the plate grouping the modern tea cart/bar - where's that from? Congrats on a super job!

Awesome use of space! I particularly like the shelves in the kitchen being used for books rather than kitchen items - makes for a fresher look. Congrats!

Rural Modernist - Thanks for your comments on my House Tour - I just looked at your tour and was 2x complimented by your support after seeing your place! Wow - to be complimented by a design master such as yourself really means a lot! And I love your blog too!

All - Thanks for your support around the comment from Plain Jane - that one really riled me up!

Plasticorange - There seems to be some technical difficulties with this tour - about 1/2 the pictures - including the bedroom shots - are unavailable right now. I've emailed AP to let them know.

Bemyescape - Cobble Hill is a great neighborhood that is less expensive than Brooklyn Heights and much of Carroll Gardens but pricer than some other BKLN neighborhoods (Boreum Hill, Ft. Greene). 1 bedrooms in this neighborhood range from the high $200ks to $500k . I'd estimate this apt to be valued around $375-$400k based on sales of similar units in the building.

KushKush - Yes, the Saarinen chairs (or imitation Saarinen more like) were purchased as a set on eBay. The fabric is the original and in amazing condition for their age. I admit that I spent about 6 months scanning eBay and bidding (and loosing) until I scored these. Re: sofa table - purchased that at Overstock.com which has a great selection and $2 shipping (or they did when I bought it last year).

Plain Jane - I find your comment very offensive and hurtful. I'm curious to know why you would make such a leap. Because I put effort into my apartment and take good care of it I must not have a life? You are extremely wrong about that. Keep your opinions to yourself.

Ndvheller - No, the Ikea cabinets came in the beige color - I believe they've been since discontinued - silly Ikea!

Atrunnell - The sofa table was purchased on Overstock.com - they have a truly amazing selection and great prices. I got this table for $250 with $2 shipping! I must admit the assembly was a chore but in the end I am very happy with it!
