New York Times Wants to Revamp Your Space!

I found a great article last week featuring a sad space in Brooklyn that was revamped on the cheap with the help of the New York Times bringing renter and designer together. Using a combination of existing furnishings, purchases, and reupholstered pieces this loft was transformed from drab to fab. The alcove studio now has three distinct living spaces: living room, dining area, and bedroom without blocking light or making the already small space seem cramped. Bravo!

"Sasha Haines-Stiles, a publicist for a fashion label, felt her 850-square-foot apartment felt awkward and incomplete. The dining area was next to the bed; all the furniture in the seating area was shabby. The Times asked Mary L. Chan of Studio Bartleby in Brooklyn, an interior design firm, to help make over the space on Ms. Haines-Stiles's budget of $5,000."

This is the first in a serious of room make overs costing anywhere from $300 to $10,000. Do you have a make over problem or are you a design professional willing to help solve one? Contact the NY Times at and you could be featured next!
