Hi guys! When I filmed my brother’s micro-studio tour using my iPhone over a year ago – I had no idea that it would have blown up as much as it has. I have gained so many views, likes, and shares worldwide. I can’t thank you guys enough for the support! It means a lot to me. 🙂 Whether you live in a small space or not, I truly hoped my brother’s 240 sq. feet studio helped give you decor inspiration somehow. I wanted to make this blog post including some pictures of his space because I think it will also be beneficial to guys. Enjoy!
My brother, Nick, lives in Uptown. His apartment is located in a coveted spot within the city. It’s a five-minute walk away from restaurants, parks, and entertainment. His building is also one of the oldest apartment complexes in the area, therefore it lacks all the fancy modern amenities. Though an outdated infrastructure, his $500 monthly rent has not increased in the last few years and the water is always free here which is an added bonus.
Nick is a minimalist by nature and avid traveler (visited 23 countries thus far) so his studio is well suited for his lifestyle. Living in a space that does not eat up his entire living expenses makes it possible for him to go on all his adventures. And having a smaller apartment allows him to be happy with less stuff. Nick’s contemporary micro studio is both cozy and practical. When designing his home, he was mindful of every decision. He managed to divide the space into three areas – work, sleep, dine. He built a mini kitchen from Ikea, crafted a creative office, and made room for a full-size bed. With the help of multi-functional furniture pieces, every inch of the room was maximized. His modern vision and clever layout breathed new life into the old unit. Overall, with an affordable lease and an unbeatable location, his city studio apartment is of great value…so he’s not planning to move anywhere soon. 🙂 ~b
