Small space love.

So, it's been kind of an exciting few days for me. My apartment has been featured on a couple of design blogs, and since I'm a bit of an interior design nerd, that makes me very, very happy.

The lovely and amazing Ana has posted a full-on house tour on her blog, Rearranged Design. Given some of the ridiculously beautiful interiors she's featured in the past (click here for a full set of her house tours), I am very flattered that she asked me to share my home with her readers.

Additionally, as part of their small space month, Apartment Therapy posted about my use of a large bookshelf as a room divider in my teeny tiny (350 square feet, people!) studio.

Finally, if you haven't gotten enough, you can go check out my entire apartment (including the family photo-bedecked bathroom and tons of kitchen shots) on Flickr.

Hopefully, these photos will convince all the doubters, once and for all, that you really can entertain in any space. I have dinner parties for up to six people in this apartment - and if I can do it, so can you. Seriously!

By the way, most of these photos were taken by the incredibly talented Miya Hirabayashi, my friend and fellow design nerd. Miya is a great artist in her own right - check out her blog to see some of her amazing graphic design work. She rocks, doesn't she?

Absolutely LOVE what you did with your apartment. Love the colors, the details and the femininity of it all. Truly beautiful. Now I'm looking at mine like it's a bit plain Jane in comparison. Cheers to your place!

Those are great photos by Miya. And calling yourself "a bit of an interior design nerd" is really understating the matter, isn't it?

This is incredibly inspiring. I saw the photos, and thought that your studio must be much larger than mine, but sadly that's not the case. After reading this post, I've decided to do a little spring cleaning and re-arranging this weekend; if only I could do something about all my bulky furniture.

Thanks, guys!

@Jen - Embrace the plain! I'd kill for the gorgeous, sophisticated, bleached-out look. Maybe in my next life.

@Louisa - Shuuuuuut uuuuup. I am totally normal!

@Eddie - Yay! You know, there's always Craig's List, if you want to change things up, furniture-wise...
