6 Swoon-Worthy Small Dining Spaces

In NYC and Brooklyn, the majority of us DON'T have a dining room (we ain't rich yet, right?!). But that doesn't mean you can't dine like a king.

Here are some of my fav tiny dining spaces I've come across on the interwebs lately. May the inspiration be with you!

 My last love of small space dining goes back to Whitney Leigh Morris' outdoor patio. Instagram @whitneyleighmorris... this defines the word cute.

An Inspiringly Small NYC Apartment

Like most people in NYC, I've felt the pain of living in a small place. Like a REALLY small place. 

We had our cutting board on our stove, baskets stacked above the fridge with our toolbox and hand towels, shoes and a TV stand under the bed, towels and picture frames under the couch, and our hutch was packed so tight you literally had to put your ass into it order to close it. Honestly, I was just short of putting handbags in the oven, but thinking back on the apartment in the Lower East Side, I smile. It was simpler, cleaner, and had so much character.

So crawl back through your bathroom to your loft bed and check out these photos of a GORGEOUS tiny 400 sq ft. yet ADORABLE NYC apartment of artist Jenna Snyder-Phillips... And feel inspired and grateful. We have a place to stay, after all.
