I recently discovered a wonderful studio apartment on instagram and it’s lovely renter and decorator, Jamie, agreed to let me feature a few photos! This tiny studio apartment utilizes space in all the right ways- and certainly isn’t lacking in style either!
Let’s start with the kitchen. Staying organized and having a minimalist mindset is key. Without drawers, Jamie decided to utilize pretty vases to keep her silverware and utensils tidy. Another space saving solution is her drying rack sitting in the sink. It doesn’t take up additional counter space and still allows her to use half of the sink while the rack is in there.
Moving over to the little dining nook, this might be one of my favorite spots in the apartment. It’s a perfect space-saving solution to use the acrylic console table with two stools. The little table looks chic and stylish but it also has a very small visual footprint and keeps the space clean and airy looking.
She frequently rearranges her apartment (which is also one of my guilty pleasures) so this is a slightly different look, but equally amazing. The small sofa and trunk utilized for storage (and as a makeshift coffee table) are great ways to maximize space and style in a studio apartment. Bright white bedding adds to the light and airy feel of the apartment and gives it a clean look.
The petite desk, chairs, mirror, lamp and art add some vintage charm to the space and can be utilized for extra seating if needed.
Last, but not least, is the other side of the living area. Using a dresser as a media stand (also what I’m currently doing in my apartment) makes for great dual storage and function. She even has room for a cute bar cart and stylish wing back chair! The rug is a good way to separate the space into different zones while also tying together the blue accents around the apartment.
Hope you enjoyed Jamie’s NYC studio apartment tour as much as I did. All photos are by Jaime and be sure to go follow her apartment decorating and rearranging progress on instagram!
Stay tuned for another studio apartment tour coming up in a couple weeks. Do you have a studio apartment you want featured on Studio Style Blog?
