Ali’s “Small Cool” Apartment on AT…Go Vote!

Ali’s Apartment

This is a little embarrassing, but I am going to embrace my small space with a head held high. I entered my apartment for Apartment Therapy’s Small Cool Contest partially as an incentive to have to do a major spring cleaning (which we did), but now it is up for the world to see. I know, the kitchen (don’t laugh!) and a lot of the apartment need quite a bit of work, but when you are renting a 1920′s apartment and all of your walls are at odd angles and/or your electrical outlets are in the worst possible locations (i.e. not at all in the bathroom), I think we did ok.

If you are feeling like you need to vote for something today or just want to comment, critique, or give me some advice…I’d love to hear it!

About Ali

I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit. Check out my DP Staff profile on Hatch.

    Ali, thank you for posting this. I tried to get the staff to give home tours on the blog a long time ago and you are the first person to do it! Good luck in the contest, I love how uncluttered and light your place is!

    Love your space. Nice touches. You should be proud of your efforts.
