An imaginative way of utilising every inch of space in a very small apartment. However I would feel like I was sleeping in a cage in that bed and Im with Jenny on the problem of changing the sheets - personally I would have gone for a pull down wall bed built into wall cabinetry as there are some really modern designs in wall beds now that double up as sofas, storage and desks. Really cute dining table and chairs.

Love the butterfly table and those wonderful foldup chairs, but gee, for the budget, couldn't they have found a bigger table, and certainly a more comfortable and better looking sofa and chair. And, I too find the bedroom claustrophobic even with all that open shelving and light... and agree changing the sheets would not be easy. And feel the whole scheme needs some colour to bring it to life.

I think this apartment demonstrates that very small areas can make beautiful, practical homes. I especially love the wallpaper, chairs (and their storage).......heck, let's just say I love it all. I think a lot was achieved on a relatively low budget. With a higher budget, I would have moved the bedroom to the back, and have an open-plan kitchen next to the living room. That way, the dining area could be incorporated into a kitchen peninsula.
