This 460sf apartment studio in NYC was the winner of 2008 Small Cool Contest by Apartment Therapy. I really love it! Simple, practical, clean, and stylish!
I would like to share a piece of the interview that shows very good points of living "small" (from the A.T site)
Living small forces you to live and think creatively. We moved to this apartment from an 800 square foot apartment and had to think very carefully about what we can and can't live without. For instance, if we buy a new pair of shoes, an old pair needs to be tossed. We also love that by living small in an urban center, we're placing less of a demand on natural resources - it's a significantly smaller space to heat and cool and we don't need a car to get around. We also like the idea of creating modular, mobile pieces that can move with us. This way we won't end up throwing out a custom design solution once we decide to move to another apartment. (TONY)
Where LESS is MORE!

From working together at every step of the design process from brainstorming to production, the relationships that we've built further our commitment to supporting new ideas in fashion.

Just like your everyday clothing, your success in being stylish at the gym lies in the small details of your outfits.
1- Add some color; a good option is to get colorful sneakers (pict.1), it definitely will give a special touch without been too obvious.
2- Get a cool backpack! (pict.1,2,3)
3- Use layers (pict 2), show off your top. Try cutout and cropped t-shirts.
4- Go shine! Don't be afraid... it's super in right now. Leggings, shorts, tops, t-shirts... just remember to wear just one (or small pieces) at time!
5- Leg warmers (pict 3), a sexy 80's touch for your look.
And last but not lest, be ALWAYS comfortable and be YOU.
