Our 1940's southern bungalow is adorably quirky: funky angles, small fireplaces, GIANT windows in one of the bathrooms (watch out, neighbors!). Since we have lots of company over, the extra bedroom and bathroom have been a lifesaver. The high ceilings make the house feel larger, and I love that our front porch doubles as another living room! About 90% of our furniture is from the flea market, family, and free finds. There are some pieces I really want to re-do, but right now we're enjoying the rustic vintage charm of our stuff. It's been really fun living in and curating a mini house.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
1) Choose furniture that actually FITS the space. When we first looked at this house, the living room seemed teensy but that was because a large leather couch and recliner were stuffed into the space. 2) Scour flea markets and thrift stores for cool, one-of-a-kind items that make your house "pop"! A vintage tablecloth or a cool candle holder ads interest to a small space. And don't be afraid to mix patterns or time periods! 3) Keep your space clean. Since our house is smaller, cleanliness is key to keep it looking bright, airy, and welcoming.
