Kitchen Spotlight: Small Cool 2008 WINNER

Small Cool 2008 came to a smashing end last night at Room & Board in Chicago. And - the winner is... a 460 square-foot studio in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, with an amazing little loft and smart use of space. Congratulations to our Small Cool 2008 top winner Tony and Hilary's 3 in 1 Studio!

On the kitchen side of things, our winner also has what is clearly a working kitchen.

This small apartment is laid out beautifully. The kitchen is long and narrow, running along most of the left side of the apartment.

Tony and Hilary rent this place and they've dressed up the small kitchen into a very functional space - even without the kind of renovation an owner could do. They've used the long narrow space to their advantage with plenty of restaurant-style shelving and a professional metal table.

We like the light and brightness of this kitchen, and we send a big congratulations out to our 2008 winner.
