One of the biggest bummers about living in a studio apartment is the whole “everything’s in one room” vibe. If you don’t love the idea of being able to see your bed from your couch (or are looking for some extra privacy in your small space) you’ll find inspiration in this NYC rental studio. Jackie and her father used wardrobe doors (similar to these IKEA ones) to DIY a “faux” wall to create a separation between the living space and the bedroom space.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? Shelves above the desk. I love the definition it gives to the space.
What is your favorite room and why? Living room because of how bright and airy it is!

Any advice for creating a home you love? Don’t let having a rented space stop you from having your dream home.
Thanks, Jackie! See more.
