Patrick Hamilton moved into a smaller New York apartment with a view. He resisted the theory that minimalist style and undersized furniture were the only way to go in a small space. Instead, he chose to make his favorite furnishings fit and to cull his belongings down to the essentials. Hamilton basks in a new appreciation for what he can do with less.
Hamilton's entryway is actually his bedroom. He defined and concealed the space with color and textures so that people don't feel as though they've just stepped into a private area. He didn't want to fully enclose the bed with wrap-around curtains but also didn't want to feel like he was sleeping in the middle of his apartment. Painting the dividing wall and entry hall wall the same color defines the space as a room. Painting a floor or a ceiling can also visually define a room in an open space.
