Small Spaces on Project Runway

Small Spaces on Project Runway

Project Runway - we've been watching since Season One (Jay Rules!) and always like the section of each season's finale episode when Tim Gunn goes visiting. Seeing the the homes of the designers is always interesting, and we thought last nights episode was no exception; in fact it was a bit of a "Small Space Big Style" mini episode...

We got to glimpse two very different small spaces last night - one hyper organized and one totally over the top.

Christian's small room in a shared apartment (he said he thought that it was originally a closet) was so tidy! Clearly one needs to be organized produce work in such a small space, but it was still impressively managed. And when he said that he sets up a bed each night to sleep in between the work table and shelving unit, visions of our own youthful NYC apartments came flooding back - yes, we slept on one of those flip out things in a friend's studio kitchen for a semester.

Chris had a more generously sized workspace, but what we were really interested in was his friend's apartment where he brought Tim for a visit. Definitely not huge, it was decorated from floor to ceiling and wall to wall, with patterned fabric, gold leaf, cherubs and more, more, MORE. Chris mentioned that his friend has lived there for thirty years and has built everything in it himself - so much fun to see.

(Oh and while we're on the subject, we thought Chris's 3 piece mini-collection last night rocked...human hair and all - don't you agree?)
