    I’ll totally leave a comment there too, don’t worry. But I agree, and space management has never been easier! There are so many Apartment Therapy how-tos; so many storage ottomans; so many permissible uses of the loft bed and the pedestal sink and extending cabinets or bookshelves up to the ceiling and (gasp) mounting a flat-screen TV on the wall. People might not love all of these tricks, but they friggin’ work, ya know? ;)
