Kyle Schuneman Writes the Book on Small Spaces
I love when Chicago-born interior designers hit it big. Which is why I’m so excited for the first book by South Loop native Kyle Schuneman. In The First Apartment: Cool Designs for Small Spaces, published by Clarkson Potter and out now, Schuneman talks about how to cram big style into not-so-big homes on any budget. And although Schuneman now lives in Los Angeles, he hasn’t forgotten his Chicago roots. One of the 10 apartments featured in his book is in Bucktown, an image of which is shown here. You’ll get tips on how to personalize a cookie-cutter space, how to split up a loft or studio into different living areas, and even how to work with roommates who have very different design sensibilities.
