I really loved reading about designer Peter Dunham‘s Los Angeles apartment in the new House Beautiful small spaces issue. What’s really interesting is that after a tumultuous personal time, he decided to sell his 3,500 square foot house and move into this 550 square foot apartment . And it sounds like he’s happier than ever in it! I’ve always liked small but efficient spaces, there’s a coziness and feeling of safety to them. Check out his adorable new place and then see how to get the look…
Love the blue door…
The living room in a mix of his own fabrics set against a pretty pink wall color.
This window seat makes the perfect spot for a small dining area.
The media cabinet serves as a bar as well.
A high shelf provides book storage without taking up floor space.
To make the tiny bedroom feel like a little jewel box he upholstered the walls in one of his bright fabrics.
Open shelving in the kitchen.
The building’s courtyard serves as a space to entertain.
Here are some ways to get the look of Peter’s wonderful apartment:
