With her expressive style, Olaniyi admits that getting all of the use she and her husband need out of a 900 square foot duplex can sometimes be a bit challenging. “Our home is small, which is great,” she begins before acknowledging that, “some of the spaces are a bit tight. Every room needs to work hard on its function, so designing spaces so that they have enough breathing room is never easy.” The dining room is a perfect example of a lot of creativity living in a small space.
