NYC is an exciting city that often sets the stage for non-stop, action-packed living. But this fast-paced lifestyle often comes at the cost of some serious square footage. This didn’t stop seasoned New Yorker and producer Andrea Mitchell from successfully putting together a stylish and efficient home with just 325 square feet to work with. Located in Greenwich Village, her tiny apartment includes all the comforts of home and mixes simple Ikea buys with eclectic flea market finds. In a recent interview with Inhabitat, she reveals some savvy design tips for living large in a small space.
The inspiration for Mitchell’s interior was to create a space that was “clean modern with a twist of cozy.” She used simulated organic elements like an electric fireplace and forest wall mural in the alcove bedroom to create a warm woodsy feeling.
The home’s features, including 18-foot ceilings, a grand skylight, and tall windows, flood natural sunlight throughout the space, and the oversized windows on the southern side of the apartment offers sweeping views of downtown Manhattan.
Her strategy for small spaces is simple and she favors Danish modern furniture because it’s small, but not too small. She also emphasizes the importance of white walls and using an accent color.
