240 square feet is way too small

Ah! I just found an article about this Brooklyn couple who live in 240 sq. foot studio. Tiny apartments are all the rage! The girl has a lifestyle blog where she regularly updates with tips about their space, but it has more to do with organization and hiding all your clutter, which unfortunately none of my furniture does. Why yes, I do think we should get a desk, bookcase and media center* that do not have drawers or doors, so that all our stuff is just everywhere, all the time.

I love the concept and aesthetic idea of the open furniture idea, however I've found that it would be nice to shut away the mess that life inevitably makes. DVDs? Wii games? Big Buck Hunter gun? Free weights? An amazing assortment of non-useful business cards? Let's just put them all right here. On top of that, since all the furniture is black, dust shows up really well. I am obviously single handedly keeping Swiffer in business with all the dusting I do. So, future me, let's remember to buy furniture that can shut away messes and doesn't emphasize every speck of dust that manages to show up.

*You may notice this doubles as cat toy storage area too.
