The following photos capture a project that was very personal to me: the studio apartment where I used to live. I was not allowed
to paint or change any of the permanent physical attributes of the apartment, so any design taking place had to be achieved purely
through decorative elements such as furniture, draperies, throw pillows, etc.. And because the apartment was only 450 square feet,
it was critical to efficiently arrange the furniture. I made the space into a home using extremely budget conscious pieces, mixed
together with hand-me-downs from my parents, and borrowed items from friends (thanks Megs!). As humble as it was, and through all
of its limitations, I tried to make the most of the space. My apartment turned out to be an incredibly comfortable place to live
for a year and a half.
