We were completely charmed by Caroline Z Hurley’s gorgeous West Village loft studio for it’s ability to pack so much into a small space without seeming overcrowded. It goes without saying that 15 ft ceilings definitely make that challenge easier, but there are a few pointers that we can take from her small abode. Although we’ve seen larger apartments with lots of tasteful personal choices and small spaces that utilize each inch to its highest potential, it’s rare to see both functionality and personality so seamlessly blended. We’re breaking down some of our favorite moments from her apartment tour to see how this fine artist put her finesse on a quintessential Manhattan studio. She clearly has mastered the art of mixing patterns, creating a show-stopping gallery wall and designing an open plan kitchen that also functions as a dining space.
