My absolute favorite annual issue of House Beautiful comes out next week – it’s all about Small Spaces and never fails to inspire and educate. I just got this amazing sneak peek of a truly wonderful home featured this year – can you believe this is a one-room NYC studio? It’s the shrink-ray version of a grand manor house.

This is the 640 square foot, single room home of designer Bill Brockschmidt and his partner, Richard. The space is blessed with great bones (especially after the removal of a center wall which orignally separated the now-open main room) and gloriously high ceilings, which allow for a sleeping area above the kitchen and bath.
