SMALL & SMART

Talk about making the most out of a small space. Interior designer Jimmy Schönning knocked down some walls and reconfigure the layout of his tiny 376 square-foot studio to better fit his needs. By converting what used to be the old kitchen into a small bedroom and moving the kitchen to the hallway, Jimmy was able to create a more convenient flow for his charming pad. He was also smart to preserve the old kitchen cabinets and use them as extra storage above his custom-designed headboard. And of course, the space also benefited by the use of white and mirrors, giving the apartment a bright and airy feeling. Another clever solution to making a small home seem larger, is to keep the color palette to a minimum—something he achieved beautifully by only using white, black and wood accents. Here's yet another proof that style also comes in small packages.

What a stunning and creative use of such a small space. Love the use of resplendent white highlighted with black accents. Well Done!

I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand.
