Most bedrooms are twice the size but don't offer near as much sex appeal (black floors) combined with a neutral softness that would attract both genders. Lots of big ideas for such a small space, let's break them down after the jump.
Lighting Isis (of Paper Flower Girl) does a fabulous job of keeping the space open and airy. She does this with sheer curtains hung effortlessly with a wire and clips. The daintiness of the hardware lends to the overall softness and charm that this bedroom is chock-full of. Next up--a pair of overhead lights in place of a headboard save floor space but allow for reading in bed.
Hooks and shelving Hooks by the door offer a spot for a robe, towel or night gown to land when not in use. Thin shelving at the foot of the bed gives Isis the chance to display family photos and adds to the room's personality.
Chair and bedside table A vintage church chair is another spot for "in between clothing" to land and an old sewing machine in its case gets repurposed as a nightstand. It's the perfect size for this bedroom, sliding right between the wall and the bed.
Flooring In a room full of neutrals, the shiny black floor pops and adds just the right combo of sexy and chic that we love.
