In the not-to-distant future, Washington, DC could be filled with a number of new, very small living spaces. So, we thought it would be fitting to highlight a recent New York Magazine article showcasing a creative way of designing a smaller space.

The 350 square-foot, sixth-floor walk-up in New York’s Soho neighborhood pictured above is home to 24 year-old designer Mischa Lampert. Here are some of the ways she made the space seem bigger:

  • Two sectionals in Lampert’s bedroom can be configured in a variety of different ways depending on if she is entertaining, hanging out or sleeping.
  • Custom shelves provide some separation in the kitchen and almost make you forget that the shower is right next to where you eat breakfast.
  • Lampert has cooktops that can be put away until needed, making the kitchen only look like a kitchen when it needs to.
