Living Small

There's always room for big ideas when living small.

  • When space is limited, it helps to think about the different ways basic elements can be used.
  • The polished concrete countertops and a glass backsplash provide a clean, reflective quality that increases light and depth in the space.
  • One of the great features of a 1920s cottage is the built-in hutch.
  • The white on white color scheme opens up the space.
  • This room functions as a dining room, guest room, laundry room and office thanks to cleverly used furnishings.
  • This non-traditional headboard adds depth to the small space.
  • The oval crib on casters can be rolled out into the room or tucked away when they want a neat, open space in the bedroom.
  • Fruzyna's artwork spills into every part of the apartment.
  • The biggest issue in the kitchen was lack of storage space, so Fruzyna added open shelving.
  • The bedroom lacked some basic storage for the essential items that don't fit anywhere else in Fruzyna's apartment.
