Extreme Minimalists: NYC resident takes us inside his 150 square foot apartment

AOL.com Editors

Welcome to Extreme Minimalists, which shares the stories of individuals who live on less. Check back every week for a new episode, from a family of four living in a van to a woman who lives with absolutely zero furniture!

Out of all Anthony Triolo's life accomplishments, from his work on the small screen to his architecture degree, living a minimalist lifestyle is his claim to fame.

His tiny 150-square apartment located in an Upper Westside brownstone has been featured in every outlet like TODAY and New York Magazine -- and for good reason: From his ties to the color of his socks, everything in Triolo's home is impeccably organized.

"The key to fitting everything in is shelves everywhere," Triolo explained to AOL Lifestyle. "You don't want to have little stuff in big spaces, so it's really all about proportion."

For Triolo, that means custom-built shelves and conspicuously hidden bins to maximize space without being an eyesore. 

"I really started to become more methodical about what I'm putting in my space and everything became more intentional," he said. And though he thought his apartment would be a temporary choice, Triolo is still living the minimalist lifestyle eight years later!
