It's a nice flat, but quite why it was chosen to feature on an article about storage beats me. There isn't much of it, and it looks like she doesn't have much stuff anyway - e.g. the round pegs at the bottom of the stairway house precisely one little bag - no coats, scarves etc. The coffee table with lift up lid - hmm, one easy swoop and there goes the vase of flowers! In my house it would be used to store random stuff that never ever gets looked at because there would always be too much on top of it to get in....! Clearly the writer was struggling to keep to the storage theme, with comments about the rug and plants/display items etc.

I'm with you jelliest, there is less storage in this apartment than the average. To me it would more suit an article on minimalism. The real story would be in the bedrooms.

Me too - it all looks great but having an apartment smaller than that myself and having a minimal but normal amount of stuff, no way is it possible in Christie Tan's place. Maybe it's the city work studio and home is somewhere else?
