    great use of tiny space

    Check out the space saving ideas in this tiny apartment. Also, she cleverly painted over parts of a painting she didn't like. I never thought of doing that.

    Pretty nice place. She really used her space well. Now if I moved in there I would need to get rid of 80% of what I have.

    WOW that is exceptionally creative. Fun apt though - just like the types you see in movies.

    I'm going to guess she'd have issues stockpiling?

    I will never whine again about having a too-small space. What she did was lovely. I'm inspired.

    I love it! Every bit! Probably the size of my current kitchen, though. I'd need to scale back a lot...

    ~Not my style at all, except the built-ins. 400 square feet is quite small but breaking it up into little rooms like that makes it worse. My sister lived in a less than 400 square foot apartment for several years. Open living space, a high ceiling and lots of natural light made it seem huge.
    I could live in 400 square feet by myself and have more room for just me than I'd know what to do with. My family of 5 is currently living in 800 square feet.
    But I wouldn't have a book wall. It just looks like clutter to me. She must really like her collection. ~
