What I Love About My Small Home:
This place has got a lot of "character". Its old and bright, and shows its age, but its comfortable. Its got loads of tiny oddly laid out rooms, so what I consider a pretty big space overall has lots of space restrictions you wouldn't expect. The livingroom is almost the same size as my old livingroom, but the huge windows make it so much brighter, and the 12ft ceilings make it feel airy and bigger than it really is. I love waking up in my room, walking to the kitchen, making myself a cup of coffee and sitting on the sofa with a book.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
One) ART ART ART! There's nothing like art to make the space your own. Invest in pieces you love. And if you're saving up, use fabric to cover large swatches of wall and get some impact.
Two) Furniture that does double duty is a must. The credenza in the livingroom also holds my office machines for example.
Three) Go up! Use all the vertical space you've got.
