Our Apartment: HGTV "Little Spots, Big Ideas" April 2013

Welp, come on in y'all! 
The grand tour of our Manhattan mansion encompasses a sprawling 400 square feet, so we had to get creative: furniture is strategically scaled, a bar cart doubles as an end table, a dead wall is transformed into a functional counter top, a flea market find is repurposed as a nightstand, and somehow we squeezed in a home office. I hope you enjoy our apartment tour and find inspiration in our small living ideas, even if you have a little more space:)
