    Sure, there are great benefits to living in one of those sleek high-rises in SoMa and South Beach, but making your modern and glassy box of a space feel cozy and home-like can also be a huge challenge. But this conundrum was one that decor and style blogger Erin Hiemstra, a recent import from Seattle, was willing to face head-on. The statuesque blonde, who started her well-followed blog, Apartment 34, four years ago as a place to pin inspiration for her (at-the-time) newly purchased, sprawling Seattle condo, has since had to recreate that comfy-cozy feeling in a much-more compact and cookie-cutter space.
