Is it just me, or do apartments (at least in big cities) seem to be getting smaller and smaller? It’s a good thing downsizing and tiny living is a hot topic as of late, because brands are responding by offering more and more functional furnishings designed to make the most of your small space.

Follow the instruction and make your own by laser cutting a wood panel.

What you need:

  • Design files, you will find both the designs files for the short and the long drawers: IKEA-Nordli-hack.zip
  • Wood glue

I recently came across the Villa Sola Cabiati on Lake Como on Vogue.com which featured it as a wedding venue. Turns out that the late Baroque style 18th-century villa vacation home of the Duke Gabrio Serbelloni, also known as La Quiete, has six bedroom suites that can be booked without getting married but other parts of the villa require a tour.

“On the piano nobile of the Villa Sola Cabiati are the magnificent rooms decorated by Muzio Canzio and Francesco Conegliano, both Milanese pupils of Tiepolo. Also on this floor is the family’s private museum that guests may visit upon appointment and only in the presence of a knowledgable family member to accompany and guide them. On display in the museum is the furniture originally from the Napoleonic apartment in Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan where Bonaparte and his wife, Joséphine de Beauharnais, had briefly stayed; just days before Milan and Palazzo Serbelloni were bombed in August of 1943, the furniture taken to the Villa for safekeeping. Most of the Palazzo burned to the ground in the ensuing fire but these inestimable treasures, including the bed Napoleon slept in, were fortunately saved from destruction. On the top floor of the museum are the rooms that belonged to Giuseppe Parini, tutor for the Serbelloni children in their humanistic studies and Abbot Paolo Frisi, mathematician, who taught them maths.”

I’m always fascinated by these old historic family homes since we really don’t have anything like them in the US. It would be even more amazing to stay the night in one.

Small bedrooms are always a challenge but a very narrow room has particular design obstacles to overcome. This bedroom, a former maid’s room in a pre-war building, is only 5’7″ wide – less than the length of a typical twin bed. The solution? A lofted space for sleeping leaving ample room for a workspace and storage for the young occupant.

Living in New York is fast-paced, and exhilarating, and a dream for many, but for most people, it also means making a few sacrifices — like living in a teeny-tiny apartment with no outdoor space and a view of a brick wall. But just north of Madison Square Park, atop a historic building that dates all the way back to 1869, one family has it all — in a two-story penthouse with ample outdoor space and sweeping views of the city. Here’s a look inside their dreamy, light-filled rooftop home.

Spring has definitely not spring in New York. It’s grey and rainy and nothing has bloomed yet. Until it does, I’m making due by living vicariously through those I follow on Instagram. Some reside in London and Paris which is busting with color and others are decorating their homes and tables with beautiful blooms. Enjoy!
