She seems really happy in her colorful, artistically arranged clutter. I was also happy in my Manhattan studio, but it was more like 300 sq ft. Also no closet, but instead of displaying my clothing, I had an armoire (which also held my luggage) and an old dresser that DD gave me (intended as a lingerie dresser--tall and very skinny, like small night table width) I kept on one side of my futon. I had a much more usable kitchen (actual counters pace, apartment-size stove & fridge), a table that seated 4 to eat at and use as a desk. Room for 2 drying racks and a washer instead of a dishwasher in the kitchen so no schlepping laundry to/from my walk-up. Short walk to farmer's market and other shopping. I miss city life, not having to drive everywhere. A couple movie theaters/performance spaces I could walk to (although my fave indie theaters were way downtown in the Village).
