I agree with the above comment - organization and storage are the key. Everything else should be functional and pleasing to the eye. Small spaces don't have room for uncomfortable couches or useless items. "Clutter" is not bad if it's artistically organized, useful, and reflects the owner's style. And finally - lighting is important -bring in as much natural light as possible!

What a great makeover - I loved that you included a floor plan in your slideshow. Also, I liked your attention to detail - like the black outlet cover plates.

All of these floors are great. I would recommend using a concrete stain instead of paint on concrete floors. If you're doing something geometric like this floor, you can lay the pattern out with tape instead of stencils. And if you're painting a wood floor, cover the whole thing with polyurethane when you're done to make it last.

The 2011 Washington Post Peeps Show winners are to be announced tomorrow (April 13th)- http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/artsandliving/magazine/peeps2010/index.html. Although, I'm not a big fan of eating peeps (something about shelf stable marshmallow...), the dioramas are always cool and creative.

We were lucky enough to live in Manhattan for a semester (when my husband was a visiting scholar) in a wonderful apartment which we would never be able to afford in our real lives. When native New Yorkers came over they would always comment on our huge kitchen, which made us laugh as it seemed pretty small by our suburban Long Island standards.
