The huge, south facing windows! My plant children love all the light as much as I do ;)
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
1. Instead of buying furniture you love and trying to make it fit, try imagining what the ideal piece of furniture would be for that space. Consider dimensions, style, use and budget. Then shop around for the closest match.
2. If you can't find exactly what you're looking for, consider having it built. I'm lucky enough to have a friend into woodworking, so I got to design the perfect plant shelf and have it built to my specifications. (A coffee table thats lifts to dining table height is in the works too!)
