Inside A Portland Mom’s Small & Sleek Pad

Who says living in a tiny space with a little one needs to feel cramped? Portland-based illustrator, calligrapher, and stylist Joy Sunyoung Fitzgerald, whose client list includes Kinfolk and Nike, proves that theory wrong. She recently invited us into her 600-square-foot home, which she shares with her 5-month-old son James and her photographer husband, and the pared-down space is somehow both quaint and incredibly airy. See how she achieves that—plus balances her artistic career and role as a new mother—below.

    Nice place and a gorgeous mama, but disappointing that there is only 1 pic of her barefoot. Joy does look to have beautiful feet.
