Most of my posts are either about surf or beach trips, summer and summer fashion, but I'm also a city girl! I also (kind of) love the hustle and bustle of a city as much as I love the serenity and calmness of the oceanside. Almost.

 And being in the city means not having beachfront vastness, or a huge piece of land to build a nice beach house with awesome views on. As a designer, this poses as a challenge for us to create a comfortable, efficient, functioning and beautiful home in a small space -- which most of the time is the only size a city has to offer.

This New York City apartment is my absolute favorite inspiration when it comes to small spaces. It is so modern and functional yet still feels homey.

It's genius how each nook and cranny of the house is used as storage. No corner has gone to waste!

These 3D models show how small the space really is and how the designer made the best out of it.

Definitely inspiring! Imagination is everything!

  1. Haha Nix! Amy always makes fun of me for my obsession with small houses, as in adik level na yung sakin—I used to stay up til 3am reading and watching videos about small spaces. I even subscribe to this YouTube channel all about small houses/apartments all over the world. Ranges from DIY solutions to engineered/architect solutions. Japan also has some interesting small spaces. This entry is so cool!
