Hi,
I moved into a 23m Apartment. Yes, that's pretty small, but it's only 5 minutes from the University, and I'm incredible lazy.  Smiley
I tried to make the best of the small space, so tell me if you like it.
Before:

Building up the bed and cleaning: It was terribly dirty.

Moving in:
I had to sleep in this chaos. The last two pictures show my view in the morning.

Bathroom:
I don't like the tiles, so I changed the shower curtain and hung up a mirror. And ducks. It helped a little bit.

So, this is what my room looks like now:
1. self made earring display 2. Sofa build out of an Ikea Billy board, two Ikea Lack tables and an old mattress 3. self made pillow covers 4. I removed one part of the Expedit Board, now a small TV fits in 5. I hung up a curtain in front of the Billy, so it looks less cluttered

View from next to the Expedit:

View from the bed:

Nice job! You really did a lot with a small space. I used to live in a studio apt so it was really cramped too. I like how you separated the areas with the shelves.

Very nice job.  I always thought all those design shows should do episodes on very small spaces, but then again, small spaces is what Ikea does best.  Smiley

Wonderful! I have a pretty similar appartment and also use a bookcase like yours to divide the only room. I really like your images because you have a very luminous apartment and that is always good. Congrats!!

wow, you did an excellent job!

Secretly I really like tiny spaces(dwellings, offices at work, cars,etc) and this space would make me feel like I was in a clubhouse!!

I love it!
