I'm back the another A Living Space apartment, this time looking at their stunning studio apartment in Salem, MA. I'm amazed that they carved a distinct sit-in kitchen dining area, living room, and bedroom out of one small undivided space. Definitely an inspiration for those of us trying to find solutions with any space. If they can do it beautifully here, anyone can!
Mapping out their home and creating a detailed floor plan helped Chris and Julia create a space that's functional, beautiful and uncluttered- even being one large open plan!
I love the use of texture, pattern, and color in this space to make it vibrant and happy. It's small but feels open and airy.
With choice mid century modern pieces and uncluttered artful arrangements their living "room" puts mine to shame even being a small part of one room!
The vintage Periodic Chart of the Atoms is a dream score, absolutely beautiful way to solidify the "bedroom" area and just a beautiful piece to look at. As you know I'm a hardcore sucker for amazing vintage science pieces.
The one thing I do miss about tiny spaces is the effortless "coziness". It's easier to fill a small space and make it feel full and inviting.
Small spaces come with many storage frustrations but I do miss how it forces you to edit carefully. This little bedroom nook is giving me nostalgia from small-spaces-past.
Clever to use a organ to divide the living room and eating area beside the kitchen, too. They got creative with what they had!
I also love how everything is cohesive but doesn't match perfectly. When you thrifting for furniture pieces sometimes you have to make due with what you have until you find the perfect pieces you'll keep forever.
No space was wasted, a small alcove beside the bathroom was turned into a "Dressing area".
Got any small space organizing/living tips to share? Would love to hear them as I figure out attractive storage solutions for merchandise. I'm thinking some bookshelves in my large bedroom closet, hmmm...
