Small Space Inspiration in a Mini Weekend Retreat

Marie Claire Maison

This tiny weekend getaway may not have all of the comforts of home, but it roughs it in style. Just how can your small apartment take a few cue's?

There is actually a lot of small space inspiration in this simple little retreat:

  • Uniform palette throughout: The area is expanded by sticking to like colors from space to space.
  • Outdoor access: Direct access to the outdoors makes a small space feel more expansive.
  • Designated "rooms": Even if you only have one room, designating separate functions within the space lets you dwell in and use your small home in a multitude of ways.

Most of the shelter is finished in neutrals and black, with little accents of lime green. A wash basin rests on a bright green stand and small green footstools work as ottomans/occasional tables in a compact yet comfy sitting area.
