Living in New York City is virtually synonymous with sacrificing space. Yet, when designed effectively, your small-bedroomed Big Apple apartment can feel just as spacious as a Hoboken condo — but you can keep your good pizza.
A few months ago Newlywed social media-er and Photographer Roxi and Andy Barron, respectively, moved into a recently renovated apartment in Brooklyn. Moving across the country from Los Angeles where square footage is as abundant as water is not, making room for both of their belongings and furniture was a welcomed challenge. Read on to see how Roxi + Andy made their small space feel big while staying true to Brooklyn’s industrial roots.
“When we first got the space it was really empty and dark. There were no window treatments and it just felt like a cold atmosphere.”
“Downstairs we really struggled with the narrow living room, and the load-bearing column was difficult to design around. We were having trouble finding an entertainment console that didn’t come out too far, but the Industrial Storage Console worked out perfectly. ”
“We wanted to create an open but cozy space. Since we spend so much time catching up on our favorite TV shows, we wanted to make the living room a priority. For our bedroom, our goal was to keep it minimal without sacrificing style since it is so small. ”
