I love my new job. Being exposed to the interior design industry gives me ample opportunities to be inspired about my own space. Here are three great ideas I found to make a tiny Manhattan space feel larger (or wherever else you happen to be cramped).

Dining: Benches over benches

Kitchen: Nix cabinets in favor of room-opening shelves

Bedroom/Living: Separate with an equally interesting wall
