Tiny Luxuries

Ginger's teeny bedroom still feels grand with rich blue walls, a wallpapered room divider and texture-filled bedding — proof that minimalism in a small room isn't the only way to go.

Triangulate It

Danielle's living room has a triangular shape which could be challenging for laying out furniture. She smartly chose a triangular coffee table which balances the seating area beautifully.

Such Great Heights

Ryan's home has enviably high ceilings and tall windows and the arc lamp emphasizes this positive feature.

Every Trick in the Book

If you're a book collector, Tess's strategy of using three identical bookcases lined up together is a good way to create a home library that looks orderly.

Go Over Big

Nadia is a fan of big furniture and big art which, counterintuitively, can make a small home seem larger.

Gray Matter

The color gray is carried throughout Tari's room which keeps it visually uncomplicated and chic.

Sleep On It

In Michelle's studio, her bed is also the couch. The large pillows give it the appearance of a sofa and are easily removable at night.
