A Sweet Little Space in Short North

I'm sure you're familiar with Apartment Therapy.  Even though the majority of the homes don't reflect my taste, I enjoy the home tours. 

Apartment Therapy specializes in small, quirky spaces.  I'm drawn to seeing what people do with small spaces because I live in a small space.  I don't know that I would describe my style as quirky and I rarely look at the decorating in these spaces with an idea toward picking up tips on decor, but they are fun to view. 

But one recent tour just enchanted me like no other on that site.  It was a tour of Suzy West' studio condo  in Columbus' Short North neighborhood.  I love the entire Short North area so, no doubt, that's part of the appeal.  But truly, this is just a great little space that's so full of personality and unique feminine pieces and I love everything about it.  So, whether you like it or not, here it is.  Hopefully you enjoy it too.

I will say the only thing I don't like in the room is the coffee table.  The whole tree trunk as table doesn't work for me.  I would have preferred something gold leafed and delicate (I have my nerve virtually redecorating for people).

I especially love the bedroom and the sign hanging above the bed.  She has a screen that pulls down at night to give her privacy when going to clever.

I want to sit on her little patio and have a glass of wine with friends and watch shoppers go by on a warm summer evening....

Hope you enjoyed the tour as much as I did.  I'm off to enjoy the beautiful sun shine outside...

Thanks for the love. I appreciate your post. It's a great space and especially the dog enjoys it! Amazing how much furniture one can pack into a tiny space, but so long as it does "good tricks", I feel like it isn't excessive.

Enjoy that sunshine!
