We've learned that small spaces don't have to be white. But bright color, it seems, can be a bit overwhelming - especially in a small space where you don't have the option of just going to a different room for a little visual rest. That's why we love this apartment: it's at once colorful and calm:This small apartment from Marie Claire Maison features colors that are dusty but distinct. From greens to plums, this is one little home that is full of color without being in-your-face.
The result is a restful and comfortable apartment that actually does feel larger through color. Just looking out the bedroom door, several colors are seen in one view, creating layers and layers of space and use within a small footprint.
