Reader's home: pegboard is underrated

We received this email the other day from Hannah:One of my favorite features has been the opportunity to see how other people around the world live (and work) in their homes, and I would love to submit my husband's live/work space in New York's Lower East Side neighborhood for your consideration to share with your readers! We recently got married last month in December, and he will be at his space until he moves in with me in the beginning of March (ah, New York City romances!). It's a 550-square-foot apartment with "2 bedrooms" (both bedrooms are windowless) that he lives in by himself and also uses as a full-time office. There's one closet – in the living room – for the entire apartment. Matt has always had a modern, minimalist style, but this apartment truly pushed him to come up with creative, innovative solutions to maintain his hyper-organized, decluttered lifestyle. When his lease ends and he moves into my 2-bedroom apartment in a little over a month, we plan to put up pegboards and I can't wait to see what happens :) If anyone was uncertain of the usefulness of pegboard, then this post is for you. What a great way to deal with a serious lack of storage space, while keeping everything off the floor and close at hand. More details of Matt's home is here and his recent pegboard collection here. (HUH??? ONE CLOSET... in the living room?!)

At 42sqm the footprint is small but clever storage solutions and design means that the living is large. The Hacienda by Adriano Pupilli Architect.

double g double take part 2

It may have a small footprint but it's big on style. I'm still lost in double g's portfolio. Abesses 3 is a one bedroom apartment with to die for oak beams and we won't mention the view. My Parisian daydreams now have a home base. Yes in my dreams I'd live here.
