A Small Apartment In Oakland

Estefania and Chris live in this Oakland, California apartment.

It is 550 square feet.

They describe it as industrial, mid-century and modern in style.

They love to collect items from their Latin and Mexican heritages.

They prefer rustic elements, natural wood, industrial design, clean lines, anything DIY and Peruvian, Mexican, or Ecuadorian.

There is a small but well laid-out kitchen.

And a very blue bedroom!

There is lots of natural light, something apartment dwellers always covet to visually enlarge their space.

There is a small area in their bedroom for a desktop computer.

The bathroom is white, a paint color that works well in so many small apartments.

I hope you enjoyed this small apartment tour.


  1. Another great small space. I enjoy each one so keep them coming. Hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day yesterday with the puppies.

  2. Good Morning Brenda. Love seeing these tiny living spaces. Since we are moving into a 900 sq. foot home it gives me inspiration. Have a great new week.

  3. This is a lovely small living space...love all the white and lightness, and how orderly everything is!

  5. I'm always interested in small spaces so thanks for continuing this series! You do such a great job of storage and decorating too.



I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time. I appreciate each and every one of you!
