I remember my first studio apartment, well it was my only studio apartment. At the time, I lived in Washington, D.C., and I was just about going to graduate school. I found this tiny little studio apartment in a very nice building right near Dupont Circle. I loved it! It had everything I needed: a living room area with a view of the city lights, a bed nook that fit a queen size bed, a separate seat in the kitchen, and a large walk-in closet that you had to pass through to get to the bath. The apartment had floor to ceiling windows and hardwood floors. It was perfect.
A Studio Apartment in NYC
In light of all my memories in my own little studio apartment, I now get so excited when I see a well-appointed small studio apartment. I found this tiny, but might studio apartment on Homepolish, and it belongs to a P.R. executive named Dria Murphy who lives in the West Village of New York City. Very girly, feminine and pretty. I like the fresh white used throughout and makes the small space feel airy and bright, like a breath of fresh air.
The pop of color here-and-there on the green of the foliage, the yellow on the citrus, and the rainbow coming from the jewelry on display, accompanies the white backdrop marvelously. It is the perfect setting for sunlight to bath the room or hear the soundscapes of the city. The drapes, long and flown, complete the leisurely and elegant feel. Very well-appointed!
Shop this Small Studio Style
Tiny but Mighty
This little studio is just so cute! Though it may be tiny, the bright colors open up the space for light and life to be let in. I like the way the accessories adorn the shelves. The personal details fit right in. Each matchs the aesthetic of the studio apartment and shows personality. Individuality and expression is not lost in the small space. Actually, the limited space highlights the most important and sentimental items: family frames, beautiful scented candles, and soft pillows.
I like the fluidity of this space. Movement and direction is essential. It is uncrowded and uncluttered. It is a functional space that aids in the motions of everyday life. There is a comfort and ease to this style that comes from the brilliance of color palette and textures.
TE came home on Friday! I picked him up from the airport. He was gone for 2 weeks. I was so happy to see him! It was the longest we had been apart in the 2 years we’ve been together. He went to London, Paris, and then to Taipei (shooting commercials and things like that). He traveled around the globe on his 13 day trip. Left for L.A. and he headed east and kept heading east until he made it back to L.A. Meanwhile… I only went from the Hollywood Hills to Beverly Hills and back about 12 times. I did spin over to Cheviot Hills to do some trick-or-treating on Halloween with my friends SN and BN, and the group they pulled together. TE went around the world… and I trekked over the same 8 miles going back and forth from my house to work. Hmmm…
Anyhoo… This weekend TE and I spent the Saturday in Malibu at our favorite spot: making plans and picking fruit, getting afternoon massages (the masseuse said that my very tense neck is throwing everything in my body off), ordering evening drinks at the Soho House (we like a drink there called the Eastern Standard and we have them make it spicy), and finally sharing a pizza at home to end the night. Sunday we woke up and fashioned a makeshift breakfast by cutting into an amazing pomegranate we picked on Saturday in Malibu. Full and ready for the day, TE dropped me off at the COCOCOZY office so I could get work done while he went to watch football. After work, he picked me up, and we had dinner. A very nice weekend spent with my guy. Now the week begins… let the games commence!
