Apartment Envy: Lonny Mag’s Michelle Adams’ NYC Pad

Leave it to Michelle Adams, Lonny’s Editor in Chief, to bring big style to a 475 square foot space in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.  Her use of black, white, ivory and gold with splashes of color and graphic prints is such a great way to keep everything cohesive (a must in a small space) but still interesting.  Take a gander.

Apartment Envy: A Brooklyn One Bedroom Makeover

I’m always a sucker for tips on decorating small spaces–a likely product of living in them my entire adult life.  As per usual, the editors at Lonny nailed it with this NYC apartment makeover featured in last month’s issue.  Take a gander…
