What makes a living space in New York City? In other parts of the country, where larger apartments and single-family homes are more prevalent, a house may have a formal living room, a family room, a den, and other common spaces. But here, residents are often forced to make do with smaller rooms—or, heck, just one room that functions as the entire apartment—which makes us get creative. Sometimes, a living space may not even be within an apartment; there are plenty of people who make their back patios into cozy extensions of their indoor living spaces. In New York, the sky’s the limit—and that means there’s endless inspiration for your own home design projects.
So go ahead, take a closer look at some of the best living spaces unearthed in our House Calls columns. They come in all styles, shapes, and sizes, and offer plenty of ideas to steal for your own small space.
