Small Space Design Tips From NYC Pros

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. Instead, we turned to three New Yorkers living in real, small apartments that pack major style heat to see how they fit so much sartorial goodness in with their shoe collections, mini stoves, and full-sized beds. Design tips, winter mood boards, and where to pick up your next home splurge? Yep, it's all ahead, so you can be somewhat cramped without having to cramp your style (sorry, we had to).
