- What I Love About My Small Home:
- So much light! 1920's building with beautiful moldings, French doors, and original wood floors. Blue ceiling adds an interesting touch to such a small space. The wall mounts are great for framing the tv and art.
- Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
- Make sure everything is cohesive. When you find things you love individually, really consider whether or not they work with everything in your space because there is limited separation.
Measure, measure, measure anything you plan to buy and map out a floor plan. I returned 3 rugs because they weren't the perfect size for my space. Small doesn't have to equal crowded if you plan obsessively.
Get creative with storage and keep it clean. It's so easy for a small space to get overwhelmed with stuff. Edit everything you own. Don't bring unnecessary clutter into your space and find a hidden spot to store everything. The cabinets along my windows are life-savers.
