We're no strangers to small-space living [1], so when we see a studio apartment styled right, we take note! First featured in House Beautiful [2], the Manhattan home of Ali Fuge proves that good things really do come in small packages. As an interior designer, her colorful take on classic pieces and easy additions like gold accessories are worth mimicking. After a quick look, you too will fall in love with studio life and Ali's keen sense of style.
