How the Everygirl Co-Founder Styled Her 950-Square-Foot Chicago Home

If there's one challenge we never back down from, it's styling a small space. In fact, we lean into it. When we're faced with a petite pied-à-terre or quaint quarters, we're compelled to find a stylish solution, and that's exactly what Danielle Moss and her husband, Conor Scanlon, did when they moved into her 950-square-foot home in the Gold Coast Historic District of Chicago. Built in 1912, the neoclassical building still had all the original moldings and architectural features (it was designed by noted Chicago architect Benjamin Marshall, who also designed the Drake Hotel).

The modest one-bedroom (with "the world's smallest bathroom") came complete with a little breakfast nook inside the kitchen. Despite the size setbacks, The Everygirl co-founder and blogger were convinced she and Scanlon could transform this diminutive space into their dream home.

"We had our limitations with the space given its modest footprint," she tells MyDomaine. "The kitchen and bathroom were both much smaller than in our previous places, so it was important for us to maximize space and prevent them from feeling too cramped."
