Andy Goldsborough

is a man after my own heart, and serves us another valuable lesson that small spaces can be stylish. Not so suprising since for the last five years he's taught at Parsons while running his own interior design firm. He says of his 500 sq ft NY apartment (pictured below) "my favorite thing to do is find an old apartment that has good bones and details and then insert modern into it". I hear you, Andy. There is nothing more appealing to me than high ceilings, original mouldings - no matter how ornate - and a selection of art and furnishings of varying styles. To me, his apartment is personal, unpretentious, interesting and most importantly, livable. It may be small, but the colours he's used have given it such an ethereal feel. Love it!

I so want one of these Parzinger 4-poster beds. I just need to find an apartment with high enough ceilings to accomodate it! - maybe next time...

I love a four poster bed, wish my room was big enough for one!

Oh I love those chairs in the "dining room"! Great contrast.

Me too Kate!

Betsey, I love those chairs too - I think the tall ones are by Chiavari.
