There are tiny treasured spaces all over the United States. Visit a lavender apartment with amazing views in New York City, meet a Boston resident who took inspiration from nautical design, check out a retro-modern space in Philadelphia and learn how salvaged materials help furnish a cabin outside San Francisco.

Purple Palace
New Yorker Wendy Kornreich turned a 1960s cookie-cutter apartment into an Austin Powers pad for a bachelorette. With the help of architect Gideon Gelber, she incorporated style, storage and luxury throughout her apartment: a lavender color palette, two walk-in closets and a three- by seven-foot bathtub. In a city known for micro apartments, Kornreich managed to fit it all into 1,000 square feet!

Entryways are often untapped spaces. Kornreich makes the most of her space with a niche that houses a couple of drawers for keys, cellphone and restaurant menus. A big, pink barn door hides this walk-in closet that serves as a coat closet, supply closet and wine cellar. One way she manages her busy lifestyle is to keep things organized at home. Add shelves to create a place to catch sunglasses, keys and mail on your way in. A mirror increases light and the feeling of spaciousness and gives you one last look on your way out.
