Daniel Grady Faires’ tiny NY apartment

Posted on Fri, 13 Apr 2012 by KiM

We received some amazing photos of an apartment that I had to share with you all. It’s the 375 square foot New York pad of Daniel Grady Faires (New York design and furniture guru and featured on season 5 of HGTV’s “Design Star” and now has his own show “DanMade” ) and his wife Dasha. Here’s a bit of info: Daniel and Dasha Faires love their 375-square-foot apartment on Ludlow Street in  New York’s Lower East Side. The 100-year-old brick building is situated where Daniel finds inspiration for the furniture he creates. The apartment features only two rooms, plus a great garden area, where the husband and wife entertain. And the pair have certainly created a warm and cozy feel – with the help of well-placed mirrors, candles and Edison bulbs to create a dreamy, low-lit haven. Daniel designs and builds much of what is in the apartment – with the help of items they find on the street – creativity is definitely their strong point. Their dining table and outdoor seating were all made of reclaimed wood from their neighborhood and the custom spice rack was designed and built by Daniel also. It’s so cute! And that outdoor space is gorgeous! I would spend every waking moment (weather permitting) out there. (Photos by Emily Johnston Anderson)

Did you grow any herbs in your garden?

It may be small, but the apartment still manages to look pretty good. Two things in particular amaze me – the place is not too cramped and the scribbled on wall manages to add more appeal instead of being an eyesore.
