Zachary Sosne bought the only place he could afford in his favorite neighborhood, the Upper West Side. Since his fiancee Lindsay Joyce joined him, it's been a gradual upgrade. Their stay at the Raleigh Hotel in South Beach inspired the gray and aqua color palette and mid-century modern decor.
With a mere 16- by 18-foot space, clutter-free is a priority. A tiny, wall-mounted dining table is paired with chairs that slide perfectly underneath the table and take no space when not in use. On another wall, a long built-in unit with massive drawers houses storage and a wall-mounted TV. Over one of the small closets, they cut a cubbyhole for additional storage. Joyce's tiny closet has its own carefully planned organization system. And since they run their business from home, all of their work materials are systematically categorized and stored under the bed. Even the pugs fit away efficiently, sleeping on a blanket under the sofa.
