There is no doubt about it, city living can be taxing. Your neighbours are never more than 2 steps away, finding a parking space is almost always a hostile affair and you are very lucky if you have an outside space. City living requires you to be imaginative and clever with the space that you do have – it’s certainly not for the feint hearted. That’s why I stopped dead in my tracks when I found this little apartment in Barcelona. You wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at these pictures that it is only 60m2! The open plan flowing spaces and use of light airy colours, soft fabrics and lots of mirrors and glass has taken the focus off the lack of floor space (on closer inspection, it’s evident that the apartment is actually very narrow)! And of course I have to mention that courtyard – it’s gorgeous enough to be featured on its own postcard!
