Small spaces have always been more my specialty. I have lived in several apartments ranging from 445 to 1200 sq ft over the past 10+ years. After a lot of trial and error, I have learned to keep your small apartment design simple. There were so many points in my twenties that furniture rental would have been perfect for my lifestyle! I worked in film and tv production and found myself moving about every year.
When I would get to a new spot, it would feel like I was at the beginning of a very slow design process. Acquiring pieces one by one.
What I have also learned is that the whole “moving process” is stressful and exhausting. Now that I am in my early thirties, I do not want to move like a young twenty-something anymore. No more schlepping my stuff from place to place in trash bags and a moving truck.
I now highly recommend a more sophisticated approach for renters or those of us to move a lot! Two words for you. rent furniture.
Have you heard of CORT? You may have seen their large red trucks on the road.
I checked out their site to see what their furniture rental options were! Rent by room or by furniture or decor piece! This is perfect for people who don’t want to spend too much time designing their space.

I headed over to their website to see what options they had and I was really surprised with the sophisticated looks that they have.

I wanted to take a challenge and design a room 3 different ways using the same main pieces of furniture/decor.
Nothing was more challenging that designing a studio apartment space! At least in the beginning, it was hard. Now, it’s spaces like those that I enjoy designing the most.
- Dual purpose furniture is key
- Utilizing your vertical space.
