Looking at all the positive features in Juliette’s rental studio apartment—clean, white walls, a cozy living area, and a warm DIY wood wall feature—you wouldn’t immediately realize that she faced the same issues many New Yorkers do when trying to make a home in a one-room studio. Trying to find space for everything you own in only 280 square feet is tough, but Juliette’s accomplished it beautifully. And it doesn’t hurt that she’s a professional at crafting attractive, functional spaces!
