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?!)

Kevin Dumais - TriBeCa

Interior designer Kevin Dumais continues to wow me with his cool, contemporary spaces that have just the right amount of funky and modern touches. This TriBeCa apartment he designed for a family is so stylish and timeless. And OMG that bench/storage unit in the entryway would be a dream come true. (architect: Ben Herzog, photos: Joshua McHugh)

Big ideas for a small Art Deco apartment

"The brief was to breath new life into an un-renovated 42sqm one bedroom apartment from the 1930s to provide sufficient relax, play and work spaces for a young professional couple."

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

Book storage heaven

The study in Giorgio Armani's home in Milan, where floor to ceiling shelving galley-style take centre stage in this long and narrow space. Oh yes! Via Vogue UK

A Brooklyn artist loft 

As much as I love that townhouse from my previous post, I will always and forever dream about living in a loft. This Brooklyn loft blows me away with its outdoor space, stunning kitchen and jaw-dropping book shelves. Again by BWArchitects. This dramatic conversion of a light manufacturing warehouse to an artist live/work loft studio juxtaposes the gritty, industrial character of the building exterior with warm, expansive interior spaces flooded by natural light. A retractable translucent wall divides the living and working areas. When closed, its translucency directs filtered light from the linear skylight and northern exposure rear facade towards the library and studio areas. A large sloped skylight acts as a space definer between the live and work areas and a white steel and glass staircase connects the lower level with sleeping rooms and a large roof deck occupying the floor above.
