Tiny Traditional Bedroom

An English sleigh bed, silver candlesticks and an antique rug evoke old-world charm.

Tommy Smythe, associate designer with Sarah Richardson Design and co-star of HGTV's Sarah's Cottage and Sarah's House, turned this petite, 180-square-foot apartment into a chic gentleman's retreat. Like many pieces in this apartment, an antique writing desk does triple-duty, serving as a dining table, night table and desk. "It's the best thing I own," says Tommy. "It's not some piece of convertible modern furniture, but it does the trick for everything."
