Us New Yorkers are constantly thinking about how to maximize the functionality of our tiny living spaces and lead more wide-open, uncluttered lives. As the years have gone by, I’ve become more and more shrewd about not bringing unnecessary stuff into my home, getting old, unwanted stuff out of my home and organizing what is staying in my home, and yet I’m still not fully where I want to be when it comes to the chi flow in my apartment.
That’s why I was amazed when I saw the way Graham Hill (founder of treehugger.com) lives in 420 square feet in Manhattan’s SoHo. His apartment is a wonder of design that took lots of money to build, I’m sure, so it’s unreasonable to expect that most people would be able to live like this. But seeing such a small space used in such ingenious ways is definitely inspiring! If you’re looking to de-clutter your home and your family’s life, definitely check this out, just don’t get claustrophobic!
