The dimensions of our apartments don't dictate our design dreams. We digest decor ideas like they're life sustaining, flipping through glossy mags with fresh furniture options from chaise lounges to indoor gyms. And, okay, sometimes they don't exactly fit our floor plans (or budgets), but our square footage doesn't mean we have to sacrifice style.
