Small spaces and tiny bedrooms are part of the NYC deal. You just need to get creative to maximize your space…

But Justin Livingston of Scout Sixteen has an apartment that’s also his office, and the clutter was getting out of control. His situation called for a total overhaul!

Justin’s solution: replace his king-size with a daybed and cut down all the collections.

The super-versatile daybed doubles as a sofa during the daytime, making it feel like a completely different room. Read on to see how Justin’s tiny bedroom makover transformed a cramped space into a zen refuge!

“I’ve always been a bit of a collector. I find things I love (like black t-shirts or light wash denim) and buy them obsessively. After overcoming a few personal roadblocks this spring, I decided it was time to purge my life of excess in all forms.”

“My room was incredibly cramped. My furniture was far too large for my small space. I work from home and desperately needed my space to feel more zen. I decided to downsize from a king-size bed to a daybed to maximize free space.”

“My room makeover has changed my daily attitude ten-fold. Each morning, I wake up loving my space and feeling free from the constraints my previous room held over me. Friends were shocked to see how pared back my collections have become, and I’m still able to beautifully display some of my favorite pieces.”

Lovely photography, but I feel like I’m missing the shot of the whole space. I want to see how small the space is, and see how all the elements come together. Right now I just see a lot of tight shots of accessories and one of the bed. And where is the office workspace that’s referenced?
