This home may be smaller than the average of those we showcase on 6sqft, but when it comes to incredible design details, it definitely doesn’t come up any shorter than the rest. Jourdan Lawlor and her fiancé Tobin Ludwig purchased this sweet West Village pied-à-terre a few years ago for just $270,000, and after a $33,000 renovation, they turned their cramped 242-square-foot studio into a comfy home with brilliant, smart space-saving techniques like built-ins and space-maximizing illusions like white walls and good lighting. But a subdued color palette doesn’t hurt this home. What it lacks in wacky wall coverings it makes up in the delightful interior touches all throughout. Curbed‘s Hana Alberts recently visited the apartment with photographer Max Touhey in tow—see some of their images ahead.

Located along West 12th Street, this little stunner is a mix of tastes featuring modern pieces like a streamlined murphy bed in the living room-cum-bedroom and brand new appliances in the kitchen.

Butcher block-style kitchen countertops, an old fireplace painted white and a collection of small antiques allow a classic feel to permeate the space. Big, bright windows light up the home further.

We all know the adage “good things come in small packages” and that certainly is true here. Even if you could never squeeze into it yourself, there are certainly still many charms to take away!
