Right now in this post I want to show you how Nate Berkus has turned this woman’s 250 sq. ft. micro apartment in NYC into a gorgeous tiny palace with storage galore throughout.

The kitchen was renovated with state of the art space saving appliances. One of the most unique parts of the home is how Nate used wall to wall floral curtains to create hidden storage (see below).

Now every square inch of Martha’s apartment is being properly utilized with appropriate storage and decor. See for yourself below and let me know what your thoughts are on it in the comments.

In this post you’ll get to tour two tiny apartments in NYC where residents are living large in their small spaces.

The first is a couple who were able to purchase a 220 sq. ft. micro apartment for $160,000 in the city (that’s a good deal in NYC). They converted it into quite the beautiful, luxurious space (as you’ll see).

The second is a woman who rents in the city and although she doesn’t have the most luxurious apartment or furnishings she’s happy because she can easily walk to her favorite places.

Meet Judith Larose-Pelletier. She’s a massage therapist who lives tiny in a 220 sq. ft. apartment. And she even shares the space with a roommate!

You’ll get to quickly tour her little home below as she gives you insights and tips on how to make a small space work without a lot of furniture or stuff.

Judith explains how living this way allows her to have the free time and money to get to travel, work overseas when the opportunity comes, and in general keep things simple with minimal maintenance. See below.

Graham Hill, founder of Tree Hugger and now founder of Life Edited is selling his 420 sq. ft. transforming NYC micro apartment called the LE1. You might remember my original post on it way back.

If you haven’t seen this apartment in action before, I think you’re in for a real treat. If you’re interested in purchasing it, beware because it’s not cheap (we’re talking about NYC here).

Either way I mostly wanted to show it off to you so you can see what’s really possible in small space when you have money to spare and the creative willingness to step outside of the box.

I thought you might also like this tiny Paris apartment that was renovated using CNC milled plywood.

The design was created by Coudamy Architects then the plywood was cut using CNC machines and then put together in the house. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?

Take a look at what the apartment looks like inside and then watch the entire video tour and interview with the dweller below.

In this post I’m showing you a 129 sq. ft. micro apartment in Paris with kitchen, bed and bath.

And how this woman re-created the space to meet her needs in this tiny space (granted she is an architect).

But when you go inside into the living room the bed rolls right out of wall and if you roll it out only half way you can use it as a couch.

After you enjoy the photo tour, video tour, interview, and discussion below I’d like to ask you to join our discussion in the comments (would you rather live in tiny house in your favorite rural setting or a micro apartment in your favorite city?)

How This Woman Went Tiny in a Paris Micro Apartment

All of the pillows and everything you need to make the bed are stored in wall cabinets right by the roll out bed.

So essentially your living room transforms into your bedroom whenever you’d like. But it gets even more interesting…
