Small Cool 2010: Nicole's Perfect Pieces


Who Lives Here: Nicole Location: Hamilton Heights — NYC Size: 650 square feet

What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? I absolutely love my living room. I designed it to be super cozy since it's where I spend a majority of the time and I also tried to create as much seating as possible in a small space since I like to entertain a lot. I can seat 12 comfortably here!…

…I also spent a lot of time sourcing many of my furnishings from places like eBay, craigslist and flea markets and put lots of effort into re-vamping many of the pieces which weren't all perfect when I got them. The Louis XV style chair for example was purchased on eBay and was all beat up and worn. I painted the frame myself and then had the upholstery re-done professionally. My X benches were also pretty beat up when I found them at the Brimfield antiques show and I had them reupholstered in a textured cotton velvet fabric. I definitely put a lot of heart into finding the perfect pieces and making every piece special.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? The biggest challenge was not being able to really do some of the things I would have liked to since I rent! My apartment is extremely boxy and I would have loved to install new baseboards and moldings to give the space a bit more architecture but it wouldn't have been a practical thing to do in a rental. So instead I tried to personalize my apartment as much as possible by painting the walls and adding lots of texture to give the space more character, and hanging lots of artwork, mirrors, etc to focus the eye on other elements which makes the lack of architecture less noticeable.
