We can't read it because we don't know Italian, but the current issue of the Elle Decor Italian Edition is packed full of beautiful small spaces.
The Spazio del Cuore is a home of built-in storage concealed behind minimalist flush white panels.
There's also an awesome use of a whimsical retractable ladder in another small apartment that looks upward for additional space.
And check out the Eco-Chic spread on cottage living for some small living inspiration. We wish we could read more, but the photos alone lend volumes of inspiration. If you have a chance to thumb through the issue, don't hesitate.
