We’re on the east coast for today’s studio apartment tour! Welcome to Meghan’s adorable studio in the Fenway neighborhood of Boston. The space is about 400 square feet and has an alcove for her bedroom.
This little entryway sets the tone for the space and is stylish and functional at the same time. The tall coat rack keeps bags and jackets out of the way and the dresser is great for added storage but still functions well as en entry table with a space for mail on top. I also love that mirror! Great design and it helps to make the space feel larger.
Let’s head into the kitchen! Utilizing wall-mounted shelving and a smart storage shelf is perfect for this little space. I especially love the shelving with added storage at the bottom and a butcher block type surface on the top that can be used as extra ‘counter’ space when needed. Dining solutions for studios can be difficult, but this little breakfast bar/counter space is perfectly suited for stools. This saves a lot of square footage in the living room area by eliminating a big table and chair set.
The couch is a great size without feeling too overbearing and the red accents in the pillows and the rug make the space flow together nicely. Another one of my favorite tricks for small spaces (and frequently seen in the guest studio apartment tours) is lucite! This lucite coffee table is a great way to keep the space feeling light and open. Another fun element to this living room is the gallery wall! Looks great over the little bar. A closer look at the bar styling. I like how she keeps it full but minimal at the same time. On the other side of the living room is a set of beautiful bay windows with additional seating and storage. The sheer curtains and chic details of the accent chairs make this little spot feel stylish and elegant. And notice the color-blocked bookshelf. I think it’s a great way to make something ordinary stand out as a design element in your space. Last, the bedroom alcove is a great feature in this apartment, as it makes the space feel more separated and less like a traditional studio. And by painting this room a different color, it signals that you’re in a separate space in the home. Wall-mounted shelving and a few prints round out the space.
