“Living in a small space is all about editing,” says Dustin O’Neal. “You have to remove to grow.”
Sage advice from the co-founder and creative director of DNA, a start-up consulting and PR firm representing some of New York’s top and up-and-coming architects and designers.
While we know that cutting down your belongings is key to making a small space work, it’s not often that we see tiny apartments stray from an all-white color palette to include purple, patterns, lots of art and even pops of electric orange and neon yellow. Having worked with dozens of creatives over the last few years, Dustin has picked up a thing or two about interior design, and his tiny 275-square-foot Lower East Side abode of three years reflects this knowledge. We recently visited the enterprising 26-year-old at home to see first-hand how you can transform even the smallest of apartments into a unique, style-filled space with less stuff.
